A wonderful look into the practicalities and complexities of having an online presence. Should you have multiple domains for different purposes? How do you context switch online? And should you have to, or want to, in the first place? I like where Ana falls on these questions, and have come to similar conclusions myself. You can be wholly represented by a single domain, a single profile, a single purpose. But that sounds a little dull to me, so I choose otherwise 😉
On the central concern around having multiple domains, particularly for "web professionals":
There were times where I thought I regretted [having multiple domains/websites]. It crossed my mind that having only one domain to represent me would be the best marketing (this whole sentence is a can of worms).
If I have a professional domain to apply for jobs, does this mean that this is my unprofessional domain?
On whether you are "authentic" if you are divided (answer: yes):
But this, and I suppose this blog and my current social media activity, is indeed a true version of myself. Without any quote marks. But it is one of the many versions I have and they all have many things in common between them.
