Home / Articles / POSSE: self-publication on the web - owning, controlling, simplifying, and sharing content

Like many of you I've not been at ease with how the free and open web has been devolving into a set of walled gardens.

Dries Buytaert posted an insightful set of posts about his thoughts on content syndication, "Publish Elsewhere, Syndicate (to your) Own Site" (PESOS) vs "Publish (on your) Own Site, Syndicate Elsewhere" (POSSE), and the next steps he's taking.

Hot on Dries' heels, Roy Scholten made a wonderful little change by (re)activating RSS feeds on

Tiny as this change may have been, it inspired me to make my own site,, a little bit better:

  • Set up Matomo Analytics (formerly Piwik), to replace Google Analytics
  • Added an RSS feed
  • Added a Creative Commons license
  • Re-enabled comments to promote conversations where they belong
  • Tweaked the CSS for increased contrast and more streamlined comment UI

I also enabled markdown, so future-self will have fewer excuses not to write articles.

Next steps

  • Set up article syndication to Medium
  • Start posting photos here, and set up photo syndication to Flickr
  • Set up SSL


Definitely imagine that that you stated. Your favourite justification seemed to be on the

web the simplest factor to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly

get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly

don't understand about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the entire thing

without having side effect , other folks can take a signal.

Will probably be again to get more. Thanks

how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from

my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.

If you have any suggestions, please share. Thank you!
