Adding some more fuel to the fire, Noël Jackson is picking up blogging again and lays out some thoughts on the importance of having your own home online. As someone who owes a lot to the web, his reminder of the power of writing and sharing online really hit home:
But, I think personal sites do more than protect your content from just disappearing one morning. Blogs give us freedom, and the freedom is not just protection from a platform that might lock us in, but mental and creative freedom. It is a creative process to build your own web site, and a journey of the soul to write to an audience that grows with you.
I love seeing so many smart and creative people investing in their own online spaces again. Let’s keep at it.
