Posting links on Twitter or a blog

I’ve been spending some time thinking about the best way to share links, ideas, videos and other material on the web. Although Facebook and Twitter have great reach they are open to big data loss if your ID get’s yanked by the powers that be. All the collateral you’ve accumulated could get wiped off the face of the earth in an instance.

You have ownership of your data, but you don’t control it’s hosting.

I am thinking of using a blog for posting things to share and then linking to the blog from Facebook and Twitter. Your own blog is the only way to own and control your content.

I may also pull out some of the old shared items from Facebook and repost them here.

We’ll see how it goes.
