People ask me why I’m blogging my post-career life instead of using Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, particularly when I’d get so many more hits on those platforms.
My three top reasons for blogging this:
- On a blog, I control the format, and I have so many choices as to how to present each post.
- Each post on my blog lives as an independent, linkable, commentable entity that I can use as the basis of an ongoing conversation that I can moderate as I see fit.
- Finally – and, perhaps, most important: I have no desire to allow anyone – Mark, Jack, or whoever – to profit off of my content.
