My Network Of Sites

I would like to use this post to promote…. wait for it…. wait a little longer…. wait some more….. my network of websites! I know, it’s not as exciting as when I talk about intersectional topics but hear me out. This is important! I do my best to take care of my online presence in any way I may. To do so, I have a network of websites that essentially focus on my values as an individual and who I am as a person. So let’s take a look at the websites I do have in my network:

Chris City (chris.city)

  • Chris Fornesa (chrisfornesa.com)
  • Art By Chris (artby.cf)
  • CSF Links (csf.li)
  • CftxP Network (cftxp.net)
    • The CF Blog (cfblog.xyz)
    • What Woke Us Network (woke.us)
    • CF Business Group (cfb.li)

So the websites in my network consist of an intricate collaboration of networked sites.  However, I am poised to release certain posts in The CF Blog network as posts on this very blog in order to clean up my online presence further.  I will likely let go of my political posts of the past as my current views have changed, but my poetry and stories will remain and likely have a separate space in this blog.

Back to my network of websites, I have chrisfornesa.com as the base camp for my online social networking profiles and the home of my purely personal portfolio websites.  I also have artby.cf as the base site for my artwork portfolios.  My CSF Links and CF Business Group provide shortlinks for blog posts by the What Woke Us Network (cfb.li) and Chris City (csf.li).  The CftxP Network is a loose network of websites that show off my personal ventures online and, in fact, I will likely choose to have The CF Blog as a joint venture with Chris City as posts from Chris City already automatically post to The CF Blog (which is a Tumblr blog).

So let me change the structure according to my goals:

  • Chris City (chris.city)
    • The CF Blog (cfblog.xyz)
  • Chris Fornesa (chrisfornesa.com)
  • Art By Chris (artby.cf)
  • CSF Links (csf.li)
  • CftxP Network (cftxp.net)
    • What Woke Us Network (woke.us)
    • CF Business Group (cfb.li)

This way, I can focus the CftxP Network on my ideological goals (woke.us) and my entrepreneurial ventures (cfb.li) while keeping my remaining internal networks (chris.city), (chrisfornesa.com), (artby.cf), and (csf.li) as separate entities within the Chris City Network as direct subjugates.  As a matter of fact, maybe I can just leave my CF Blogs free from my own intervention until I decide to write in them again, at least as archives to my persona and beliefs.  They aren’t going anywhere while I still have my cfblog.xyz domain name!

So why in the hell am I talking about this?

Well, simple.  People in my generation need to be mindful of their online presence.  For most people, simply having one website and one domain name is conducive for their goals, especially if they’re vying for jobs or careers in non-tech related industries but want an online presence, nonetheless, that exemplifies their accomplishments and make them accessible for view by the public and potential employers.  What I just posted is simply a mind map for myself to organize my network of websites as I am a technical-oriented creative whose online presence is very important to his future career goals.  This way, I can clearly separate my personal, career, artistic, advocate, and entrepreneurial identities while concatenating all of my “selves” in a cohesive network of websites that make my online identity (and thus who I am as an individual) accessible and transparent to anyone in the public who is interested in finding out this information.

As someone who is autistic, I am also happy with creating such a system as a source of relief as I can finally formulate the many ideas and identities that I have had, until coming up with this scheme, floating in my mind.  Many autistics like myself do find systems as rational and, thus, comfortable.

So essentially, this post is meant to take you through my own thought process in managing my online presence to, hopefully, help you see how you can manage your’s while, at the same time, seeing such a process occur within the mind of this autistic individual.

If you’ve made it this far, thank you so much and best regards!

With much love and grace,

Chris Fornesa
