I came across this post by Tracy Durnell on how she loves her website, and that was prompted by another post which was in turn prompted by an old talk by @adactio. I like how we can have a long chain of blog posts.
My website is adactio.com. I love my website. Even though it isn’t a physical thing, I think it might be my most prized possession.
I will pile on to that chain by stating here that I love my website too, that it has served as a refuge for me, by being a space where I can aspire to truly be and express myself (aspire, because I still self-censor a lot).
I am astounded to see someone calling his website his most prized possession, and it makes me wonder if mine is too. After all, it is the most genuine representation of my self, a self that almost never appears in-person.
