Jonathan Poritsky, writing at The Candler Blog:
My own website is a simple proposition. Here’s a space where I can put out the best writing I’m capable of. I own every pixel here. That concept will never go out of fashion, even if it fades from the limelight.
I honestly don’t know whether or not there will always be a Google or a Facebook to help readers find me. I do know that I’m in control of whether or not there’s a candler blog.
Jonathan’s thinking here is very similar to what recently moved Brent Simmons to delete all his tweets.
