After registering myself on networking site after networking site, the inevitable happened: I registered a domain name. I'm installing a WordPress blog, a message board, a wiki, picture hosting, and Google apps.
So what am I going to be doing? A number of things. I think I'll migrate my professional blog from wordpress.com over to my personal site. The homepage will reflect what I'm doing on Facebook, Twitter, Digg, etc. Also, I will have a message board up and running.
I get the feeling that LiveJournal is dying -- and I'm not the only one who thinks so. jwz is has been feeling it too. But still LiveJournal (along with Xanga) is one of the few platforms that generates a high volume of blog comments despite a (relatively) low level of traffic. The Facebook note app is pathetic and does not support either simple formating or HTML. Nobody wants it to be old school MySpace, but come on!
Finally, I don't care what people say, a personal domain will always be more trustworthy than a subdomain -- not matter the service. People just take you more seriously.
