For a number of years, I’ve written blog posts on various subjects relating to digital marketing, social media, search – the types of subjects one would expect in the area I make my living in. However, with the proliferation of shorter-form services such as Twitter, Google+ and the like, I simply don’t find that I am adding a tremendous amount of value by writing about the work I do. Put simply, I get more done actually doing the work.
So I’m considering a rather radical simplification of my website. Since it is built on WordPress, I can archive it, export it, and keep it hanging around on a local server. This is helpful for me, since I have used the site as a bit of a link-blogging tool for my own internal use.
Therefore, I am contemplating replacing the primary content of the site with a working space created by the innovative web outlining tool called Fargo. It’s a clever tool that is in its infancy, but has already proven to be a useful production-level thinking tool for me.
This post is itself a bit of an initial foray toward this path. It was written and published using Fargo without ever logging into WordPress. Its the federated, open, and distributed web at its best.
