If I would care about traffic and clicks and all that, then that would automatically influence my writing (negatively). That is also why I am not actively syndicating my content to sites like Medium, Tumblr, etc.
If I would choose to put my posts up anywhere else than ‘home‘, I would in fact be giving away more than I care for. I would have more platforms to maintain (with different levels of manageability), spreading myself thinner and thinner.
But moreover, if my posts would be all over the place, not conveniently tied together in one place and under my control as much as possible, well… Home, it would not feel like home anymore.
