There’s a saying among independent bloggers. “Own your content.”

It means “Don’t rely on Facebook or WordPress or Twitter, or any other platform you don’t control. What if they disappear? What if they change ‘the rules’? Get your own website instead.”

On the other hand, it’s fun to be social. You can have your own domain-name and own your content, but if your friends and/or audience aren’t old-fashioned RSS users, you might find yourself alone.

I own my content and publish a blog at https://www.rich-text.net.

I try to publish everything on my website, but I also have a Twitter account and a Tumblr account and a micro.blog account, and this WordPress account. If you still bookmark websites, or you’re still an RSS-feed follower, www.rich-text.net has everything (and everything else) I post. My intention with this site is to mirror most of what’s there, here.

(N.B.: everything is always a work-in-progress. Caveat lector, y’know?)
