Do any of you have a landing page? After discussing business cards for teh blags with my colleagues, I decided the easiest way to keep everyone up-to-date with my writing, photography and other projects is to have an personal landing page (PLP)!
The purpose of a PLP is to act as an online business card and web index site. By providing family, friends and colleagues with a single site where everything I am doing is indexed, I hope to make it easy to maintain communication with everyone, and to make it easy(ier) for me to manage my online presence.
This PLP, a hybrid between a resume and a personal website index page, is actually a wiki where I link to my writing, which is spread all over the internet at this point. As of this morning, I changed my five domain names [grrlscientist.net, grrlscientist.org, grrlscientist.info, grrlscientist.com, and grrlscientist.us] so they all point to my PLP. Regardless of what happens in the future, you will be able to find me by going to this site and looking through the links there. After I am finished experimenting with the graphics and formatting, that page will remain relatively static except for updates, and will serve as a central location that links to everything I've published on the web. At this point, I link to all my blogs, past and present, and will add other material in the near future.
Are there other uses for a PLP that you can think of?
