“A personal website also creates personal pressure. Pressure to have things worth sharing. Pressure to be cool and interesting enough for a personal site. Pressure to have a flashy design, or a witty design, or the cleverest and cleanest code. Pressure to keep the site updated, not look like you lost interest, or stopped existing after your site was last updated in 2016.”

The big reason I don’t is worried about looking like a fraud; that I don’t have the skills or knowledge to be at the level I’m at in my career. It’s the same reason I rarely tweet, post or share other content.
