Honestly, I’ve started blocking what I don’t want to see in hopes of narrowing down what I do want to see. The first thing to go were big name major publications. If I want to read their stuff I’ll go directly to their own website.

If I see stuff I dislike such as, I’m not a fan of listicles, life hacking, self-help, Trump (really, it’s enough of Trump already), how to do this better because I just generalize and assume no one is doing it as good as I do articles I block the writers so I don’t have to see them again. Oddly, they are most of what I see which is why I block them.
