I totally love this piece on why everyone needs to start building personal websites again by @laura - eloquently captures all the values I’m chasing in my own scholarship and internet presence without being heavy handed. https://24ways.org/2019/its-time-to-get-personal/
A benefit of having a personal website for an academic: some publishers ask authors to wait a year before putting the manuscript on an institutional website, but they let authors post accepted manuscripts on a personal website immediately.
@robhughes @laura Indeed - I definitely take full advantage of this. Always a bummer to see people handing over their manuscripts to academia.edu and researchgate on this basis!
