I couldn’t agree more with the premise behind services like About.me and Flavors.me: if you spend a lot of time online for work, play, and your sparetime projects, you want a one-pager which explains who you are, what you do, and where to find you regarding those different contexts. A nameplate site is a great way to do this, which is why I’ve kept up ginatrapani.org for over six years. Since I’ve always linked to it from every single thing I do online, it’s the first search result for my name. (Sorry, other Gina Trapani’s). Social networks like Twitter and Facebook and services like About.me and Flavors.me and LinkedIn come and go, but when you host your nameplate site (and blog) on a domain you control, it doesn’t change, you never lose Google juice, and there’s never a question about the canonical web page which identifies you.
