A persuasive look at the many reasons why you should have your own website, and some of the benefits it will bring you.
This post has a lot of takeaways for non-developers and even non-technical people. You don’t need to be a geek to have a website.
Personally, I think it’s vitally important, for example, to use a website to maintain a record of all the free accessibility testing you do as a person with disabilities. While I’d rather that the “f*ck you, pay me” approach be adopted instead of every organization and its brother jumping on mailing lists and social media asking for free work from persons with disabilities, maintaining a record of all the free work you do that can be used later to complete the experience section of your resume is the next best thing.
