Inspired by Frank Meeuwsen and what I read on his website about the indie web, I am playing around on this website. I call it playing because it doesn’t feel like work. I am having fun, learning a lot and slowly working toward my goal of my own platform as the hub for (almost) everything I do online.

Writing on your own website associates your thoughts and ideas with you as a person. Having a distinct website design helps strengthen that association. Writing for another publication you get a little circular avatar at the beginning of the post and a brief bio at the end of the post, and that’s about it. People will remember the publication, but probably not your name.
