Decided to stop posting my art to Instagram. Some of the features of social media — likes and favorites, more than anything else — mess with my brain, latching on like behavioral barnacles that I can’t scrape off easily other than by exodus and abstention. And so I’ve left.

One of the other reasons for leaving: I’m inescapably fond of being able to craft and form the platform I publish my work on (to wit, this site). I’ll post more in this vein soon, but in the meantime, Zeldman’s recent article on the indie web is worth reading.
