Oh my Goodness! I have a file in my email programm where I store all the ‘thanks for joining us’ emails from various sources: social networks, professional communities, shopping accounts etc. Today I went through it, and I hold some 50 accounts! Including several email accounts. Who needs that?!?
The one I deleted today was a political network. Yesterday I quit membership in the according party, so no need to keep the account. I have joined them full of motivation, started working actively but soon found that parties have nothing to do with democracy – not to speak of liberals and freedom.
The thing is this: I think that being politically involved is really important. When I think of all the people around the world fighting for their right to vote, for having their own nation or a democratic government, I feel blessed to live in one of the most advanced democratic societies – and I worry because I feel that in my country individual freedom is fading. But that makes a topic for another post, we are here to talk about my ridiculous number of online accounts and which ones I am going to delete. Any thoughts on which ones are essential to keep (except wordpress, obviously)?
