I’ve talked many times on here about how I believe we should all work to own our content. Having content in a system that you control is absolutely the way to go, and then you can use other channels (like social media) as a means to share it.
Along those very lines is a great concept being pushed by IndieWeb called POSSE: Publish (on your) Own Site, Syndicate Elsewhere.
They offer a few main reasons why this is a solid model, but ownership is a big piece. This matters in two big ways:
Continuing to share on social media, email, and other places helps keep things easier on your readers. While I’d love to see a world where everyone uses RSS to handle their media consumption, I realize that isn’t going to happen. I’ll still encourage that angle, for sure, but I’ll also be sharing my content across every medium possible in order to give people simple ways to find it.
The full POSSE concept is fairly complicated and might seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. You don’t need to build your own server or anything, just set up camp in a place that you have a degree of ownership in, and then share your thoughts from there. I have a short course that can walk you through everything, or just reach out if you’re stuck and I’ll be happy to help point you in the right direction.
The idea is not unlike what I’ve been promoting, but they’ve taken it a level further to refine the idea. The main idea is to publish your ideas on a platform that you own (which could be WordPress like me, but certainly doesn’t need to be), and then sharing the content across the web so your readers can see it wherever they prefer to consume content.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
