Why You Need to Build Yourself a Website

  1. A website isn’t static, it’s dynamic and it’s ever-changing. The moment you accomplish something, you can add it to your website and people can revisit to see what you’re up to.
  2. Having a website makes you stand out. If someone wanted to look you up on the internet and you didn’t have a website, all they might see is a Facebook or Twitter profile.
  3. A website reaches a much wider audience and you control what it is they see first. This is important for establishing your personal brand and for highlighting your accomplishments.
  4. Succeeding today requires that you make yourself stand out, and having a website can help you do that. It shows that you’ve taken the time to learn how to do something fairly technical, and it shows that you have some skills other people don’t have.
  5. You gain some new skills that can be very useful in the future. Learning how to build a website involves a number of different skills, especially if you get into customizing and optimizing things. Even if you’re not looking for a job in a tech field, having these skills can give you a leg up.
