Social is Mr. Right Now, Your Website is Forever

Let’s talk about the importance of owning your own website and content. As creators, we have no control over what happens with social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, TikTok or…X (Twitter).

I’ve had a blog for the past 18 years, and over that time, I’ve seen a lot of apps come and go. I lost my first blog when MySpace shut down, years of Daily Booth photos when they ceased operations, and RIP the thousands of videos and views I lost when Vine died (I’m still sad about this one). The only thing that has lasted the test of time is my website, my home base on the internet, the place I own. As a long-time blogger, I’m passionate about making the web a more empowering and profitable place for creators.

Invest in Yourself, Own Your Digital Real Estate

Our social media accounts are just rented spaces, we don’t own them. Algorithms change, policies are updated, and one day, our accounts could be suspended or deleted without explanation. I’ve seen friends lose years of content when their account gets shut down (often for no reason!) or hacked. This is why it’s more important than ever to build a home that you own for all your digital content.

How Hvr is Changing the Game for Websites

When I first learned about Hvr, I was inspired by and related to the founder’s goals of empowering creators & publishers to reclaim their communities and earnings power at their sites. Over the past two years, I’ve worked with our Hvr team to build a suite of tech that transforms websites into community spaces where publishers can truly connect with their audience. Our partner program (Hvr Sitepartners) helps creators/publishers increase revenue & engagement at their sites.
