When I started setting up a personal domain, I bought pkarthik.in and set up my email on it. However as I went ahead and created an identity for myself on the interwebs, I stuck to the name pkarthikr everywhere and eventually had to buy the domain pkarthikr.in.
I gave this a bit of thought on how to restructure my presence on the interwebs and I feel I’ve come up with a decent idea. I will use pkarthik.in to be a blog to share my book and movie reviews, work of arts, travellogues and anything personal. And my Internet identity, pkarthikr.in to share about my pursuits in programming and things that I learn.
It does feel a bit of a work to seperate both the identities. But I can imagine people who come to read about my technical expertise, do not want to know about my thoughts in movies and vice-versa.
