Eleven and six and twenty

Thanks to Jeremy for remarking how he forgot his blog’s 15th anniversary (congrats Jeremy!) it reminded me to check and, well, I missed my blog’s anniversary by nearly the same number of days as he did. On Saturday October 1 this blog, my personal blog on my own domain name but not my first ever personal blog, […]

Three microphones

I began posting to my own site in earnest on March 6th of this year. I wrote: So, starting tonight that is what I’m going to try again to do with a goal of sticking with it in perpetuity. This doesn’t mean that I won’t be posting to Twitter or Facebook or Instagram, but that everything […]

Every morning I take a few moments to work on my site. And each day it edges closer to being just “OK”. But that doesn’t stop me from publishing. Personal sites are always a work-in-progress.

Jeremy Keith wrote on his blog about owning his words, or, being willing to publish his words (snarky or otherwise) on his own site under his own name. I recommend you read his entire post. But this bit stood out: I wish I could articulate how much better it feels to only use Twitter (or […]

We know better now

Manton Reece, on his blog, on podcasting lock-in, the open web, silos, and more:

He’s right. I got caught up in Twitter, Facebook, etc. and put so much effort into those that I lost the spark for my site. Even though I’ve had once since the 90s. I’ve reignited that spark by posting first to my site and then allowing that content to go out through those networks.

My island on this ocean

Me, over four years ago: As it stands I post what I’m currently doing to Twitter, I am testing out Pownce with mobile blogging, events, links, and files, I post mobile phone photos to Flickr (as well as the occasional screenshot), videos go on Viddler, bookmarks end up on Ma.gnolia, tasting notes end up on Cork’d, and my thoughts on Appleproducts find their way […]

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?
