Most of us have had to unfriend or block individuals on our social networking sites whose excessive self-promotion constantly clutters up newsfeeds and group pages. These cretins have no idea how obnoxious they are and never contribute anything but self-promotion to the groups they are, in essence, spamming.
I deal with an issue known as "writer's block." It is real, I promise. If you have been writing for any length of time, you know what I am talking about. What I discovered through my experience is that my surroundings either contribute to me producing valuable content, or it hinders my ability to write well.
