Since 2018, I’ve been posting both my social media quips and long form pieces to my own web site steveroy.ca.
I do cross-post the social media bits to other platforms, never forgetting to engage with people there. But ultimately, the source of truth for everything I post is my self-hosted site, where I own and control my content.
This last part is why it’s baffling to me that people and companies take residence on platforms like Facebook, ceding ownership and control of their voice.
I heard recently a saying that perfectly encapsulates this: Never build your house on someone else’s land.
