Most social media has made it easy to follow other people, perhaps way easier than it needs to be. I’ve spent the last 15 minutes trying to follow people here and the first few moments into it I was confused and anxious. I expected recommendations to fly fast, I expected a stream of information from which to pick and choose. I wanted it to be easy.

But choosing friends and people to follow should never be that easy. You don’t stand in the middle of the street, stop people and say you want to be friends with them or want to follow their activities, do you? The dance needs to be deliberate. I am glad the discovery here is slow. I will take my time to find my people here. I will be better for it.
