A lot has changed on the internet since 1995, when I registered my first domain name wistex.com, which was free, by the way. We have the rise of social media, and a whole myriad of changes to how search engines work. We also consume our content in different ways than before, whether it by video or on our mobile devices.
I’ve been taking a closer look at my blog and websites and thinking how to better organize the content I create or curate. While I love sharing cool things I find, it becomes hard to find them again after you have shared them and moved on. Adding them to my blog seems like a good idea at first, but with the variety of topics that I am interested in, it becomes a jumbled mess of unrelated content.
So perhaps it is time to find places for specific types of content.
I have started creating topic specific websites, with their own social media pages, to make it easier to find and follow the content you are interested in. And to make it easier for me to find my favorites again.
Duck Sauce Network
I actually created the Ducks Sauce Network way back in 2003. Back then it had a bunch of jokes and Flash-based games on it. In 2013 I decided to resurrect the website, but this time as an entertainment website featuring mostly videos.
A online magazine housing more in depth articles on business & technology.
Life is Transformational
Curated content that inspires, motivates & makes you think, designed to help you take your life to the next level.
Visionary Learning Studios / Videos
While I have not decided what to do with the main domain name, I decided to create a videos subdomain for housing free educational videos from a variety of sources.
In stead of posting my personal journey on my blog, I decided that perhaps it deserves its own place.
Scott Stolz .com
Yeah, I picked up a vanity domain. I will house my bio, plus links to various projects I am working on, and books that I author.
I haven’t fully decided what I am going to do with this blog, but most likely it will house announcements about what I am up to, plus the current archive of articles.
I am actually working on some other projects, but they are not really ready for prime time yet. I’ll be announcing them as soon as they are ready.
Helping people embrace life's opportunities.™
