wouldn't it be a good idea to be in control of your business and to make sure it stays that way?
Lots of people try to build their business on OTHER people's web sites. Look no further than the latest 'make money on squidoo' WSO.
The current news in the blogosphere proves it, again:
15 Million Posterous blogs are about to be deleted!
Twitter pulls the plug on blogging service Posterous | CNET UK
Lesson learned, again:
Do never ever build your biz on other people's web sites.
- they can delete your profile any time for no reason
- they can change their policies any time for no reason
- or, they can simply shut down
As happening with Posterous right now. The site, bought by Twitter, will shut down and 15 Million blogs will be history in a few weeks!
Now imagine putting years of work into a platform and it shuts down!
Do not build your biz on 3rd party web sites - not blogger, not tumblr, not wordpress.com, not squidoo, not any site not owned and controled by you.
The core of your biz must be your own, self-hosted web site!
