I keep wasting time posting things in places that are hard to get to. My own stuff is locked away in one silo or another. Not that my tweets and Facebook posts have any enduring value, but I should have control of my own stuff.
Whenever I post something on Twitter or Facebook, I’m constantly checking to see if anyone liked or responded to what I wrote.
In the early days of Twitter it wasn’t unusual to engage in conversations that lasted throughout the day. But then it got mean.
Specifically, I want something like a commonplace book that I can use for things I need ready access to or that I want to be able to share. Things like:
- notes on tech I use
- notes on things I’m learning or playing with
- my resume & portfolio
- things I’m thinking about
There are things I don’t want:
- things that pop up & get in your way
- huge hero pictures on the front page
