Sure social media is huge, but do you really want to spend the rest of your life as a digital squatter on other people’s social networks?
Instead of making Mark Zuckerberg richer, why not build your own cozy spot on the interwebs?
Hey it’s not just me, the girls on HBO’s super-hip new show “Girls” feel the same way:
SHOSHANNA: Oh My God! You’re not serious? I mean — that’s like not being on Facebook.
JESSA: I’m not on Facebook.
SHOSHANNA: You are so [expletive] classy …
Classy is right – there’s nothing like having your own domain name, on your own website, with your own creativity and ideas, highlighting you and only you.
Plus if you’re looking for a job, there’s no better way of highlighting your digital savvy. Even if you’re not looking for a job, what better way to build your online brand?
And for goodness sake, take control of your name on search engines. Facebook and Twitter shouldn’t own your top Google rankings. When people Google you, they should get something personal and special, and not just another boring Twitter feed or Facebook profile or plain-text LinkedIn resume.
Take Cascade by the good people at Quantica Labs for example. It’s simple, to the point, and it looks darn good. No distracting ads, or annoying friends, or hard to remember URLs. Just you, your words, and your digital brand.
We’ve got loads of equally cool resume, portfolio, blog, and other kinds of personal websites, go check them out on the Themes page!
