Should you have a personal website? From the standpoint of a working professional, the answer is an absolute “yes”!

It’s increasingly beneficial to develop your own personal brand and promote your accomplishments as well as your self-interests. Having your own website means having your own presence on the web, making you easily searchable if anyone ever wants to look you up in the process of seeking a job, or evaluating a business partnership opportunity.

There’s a small, but hopefully increasing trend of taking back control of our content from centralized resources including social media, and hosting on our own platforms. Personal, self-owned web presences are undoubtedly going to be a key contributing factor – just as they were in the early days of the web. I get little signs of encouragement whenever I encounter articles like this one.
