James hits it on the right spot when he writes about the indie web:

To have a personal website is, presently, an act of rebellion. It is a statement. You are saying: I want to define my experience on the web.

He compares the indie web to the punk music scene. As I once said, blogging as a whole is an act of Punkrock Publishing! You are in control, you can make your own rules, you define what when and how you want to publish. With the creative confinements you decide for yourself.
