Thinking about the web


I’ve been seeing some good posts recently, like these ones from Andy Bell, Chris Coyier, and Sophie Koonin, about using a blog as a real “base” for your place on the web, and then following the POSSE principle for everywhere else.

I like that idea - this is the one part of the web I have the most control over. It’s already partially-federated (with some improvements coming this way in the near future). I just need to set up some more syndication tools using IFTTT, and then I think I’ll be good to go.

I’d like to add a second post format too, for shorter-form posts that I’d normally have written for Twitter - as well as making it a bit easier to publish content. But that means getting a CMS of some description, so might take me a little while.
