I've discovered a set of standard pages to include as part of a personal website that I really enjoy. These are:
- "uses" page (/uses)
- "now" page (/now)
- "feeds" page (/feeds)
- A place to list the various tools, services, configurations, etc.
- A place to showcase and share tool stacks to help others.
- Here is a collection I stumbled upon to showcase concept (very tech-centric): uses.tech
- Popularized by Derek Sivers, a page to share information about your current status... where you are located, what you are working on, and any other priorities. "A public declaration of priorities".
- Here is a page dedicated to the concept: nownownow
- And here is a collection of examples
- A place to post feeds associated with your domain... blog(s), podcast(s), etc etc.
- Discovered via this article.
What I like about these conventions is that they make it easy to discover key elements of a personal website, and create a development trajectory to fill out content that might belong in each of these buckets.
I love the idea of having a website that has each of these elements, with a stream of content on each, maintained to be reasonably current and fresh.
