Jeffrey Zeldman: The vanishing personal site

Jeffery Zeldman on the trend of personal sites, or the one-stop URL for each person's published goods online, going the way of the dinosaur and how more and more people are publishing their goods on many different services.

I'd be remiss not to mention my goal of Bringing it all together and how I'm getting pretty close to my personal online publishing Utopia.

Jeremy Keith wrote about his personal efforts, and the efforts of a few others, and how the strategies all differ. It seems that there are few different ways to go about "bringing it all together", you just have to choose which one you like the best.  Here is a short list:

  • Publish only on your own site.
  • Publish everywhere but aggregate back to your site.
  • Publish everywhere but link from your site.

There might be a few strategies I am missing, but these seem to be the most common I've seen lately.  I am attempting to live by the first strategy on the list, though things like Twitter I tend to keep on Twitter.

What strategy will you choose?
