Weeding Wednesday

“Follow Friday” has been a longstanding tradition on Twitter. It’s a great idea. People you follow, make curated recommendations of good content. Well, the world needs balance, and I’m instituting Weeding Wednesday.

Weeding Wednesday is a day for reducing internet noise.

This Weeding Wednesday watch your Twitter feed from a different perspective. Don’t look for the great posts. Look for the “meh” posts, then unfollow anyone with a low cool to meh ratio.

Spend a few minutes scrolling through the first couple pages of your email inbox. Unsubscribe from things you don’t want. Filter out things you don’t need to see all the time into different folders.

Find places where “weeds” have crept into your media consumption, and clean them out:

  • Twitter
  • Email
  • Instagram
  • Facebook
  • Podcasts
  • RSS Feeds
  • Everywhere

Your next week on the net will be higher quality, with less overload. I guarantee it.
