As someone who has deep roots in the “counterculture” when that term became an idiom, I can certainly relate to what you have written. Obviously, I don’t totally shun having an online presence, although I do limit my foray into the deep seas of social media. I have belonged to various backwater sites on the WWW in the past and even once had a profile on LinkedIn, but, I never felt like that site was the right fit for me. I now limit my online time, as far as ‘social media’ is concerned between Medium and Ello, although, I am considering joining another site, solely for the sake of my art. You won’t find me on FB, Twitter, or Instagram. I know such is a rare occurrence these days. My ‘avatar’ is actually a self-portrait I drew in colored pencil. Thank you for writing this article.
