owning a website in 2020:

  1. build it yourself. be cheap. be low-tech.
  2. use semantic html.
  3. use minimal css.
  4. make your content portable. what’s yours is yours. write in markdown & use a generator. don’t mix content & formatting.
  5. don’t use (more than a little) javascript.
  6. respect your visitors and they’ll respect you.
  7. POSSE.
  8. individuals > corporations. be IndieWeb. be distributed.

I tried to follow these as best as I could on my site. I’ll try to write up more on how I did it sometime.
