I’m interested in cultivating my own digital space that I control, away from social media networks. This website is the product of that. Some of my guiding principles are:
- Personal over commercial: the primary purpose of this site is to be a personal space. I’m not optimizing for hiring managers or clients, though they’re part of my potential audience.
- Local over global reach: things should be meaningful to myself and the small subset of people who might care. I’m not trying to connect with as many people as possible.
- Gardening over architecture: I can organize (garden) as I go along; it’s better to have messy content to organize than to spend all my time planning instead of creating.
- Earnest over impartial: I am trying to be positive, curious and excited about what I’m doing.
I’d love to talk more about personal websites if this is something that also interests you.
