I've got too many websites...

Pinds.com, Coach TV, Conscious Startups, Larspind.com.

Is that normal? :)

Seriously, though, while I'm totally committed to the concept I'm getting going with Conscious Startups, I'm considering whether I should just host it all right here on pinds.com, and have my personal brand be the umbrella for everything.

What are your thoughts?

I think you should keep them separate, and use this space as the aggregator for those who not just follows your products, but you.

I'm torn. On one hand I'm all about boosting your personal brand, but being separate has a benefit that you don't always have to be the driver -- you can stop doing it, but the site remains for posterity, or you can hire someone or hand it over and it can carry on without you. So I guess on balance keeping it separate is good. It's also hard to get investors for a personal brand if you ever wanted them (Om Malik being a notable exception, but we can't all have a name like Om :)

I think I'm leaning towards a single blog under my name. I have much to say, and it's about so many different topics - relationships, chlidren, parents, business, startups, pain, love, food, politics, and on and on. It's all me, and it's all relevant to all of us - if you're a living breathing human being, that is. I don't care about investment or selling. I do care about building a personal brand. Here's the rub, though: I'm also considering changing my name this fall. So I guess it would have to be yet another new web site, under my new name. Or perhaps I'd move this site over to the new domain (forwarding all in-coming links). Oh, it's all so damn complicated. I just want to blog! :)
