About /where pages

In 2015, Derek Sivers thought of a way for people with personal websites publicly declaring their priorities. He called it the now page. Today, many personal websites have a now page.

I've built on Derek's idea. People with personal websites should also be able to publicly show where in the world they are at any given moment. I call it the "where page".

Why do you need a /where page?

Here are some use cases for you to introduce a where page to your personal website:

You might be interested to let others know where you are. Maybe you'd like to meet up somewhere? In my case, I'm travelling for a whole year.

My friends can use my where page to always check in which country I am.

Adding your own /where page

Do you have a personal website? If so, you can consider introducing you own where page. It's simple:

  1. Create a page and add a section.
  2. In this section, write the name of the place where you are right now.
  3. It could be a country, a city, a place inside of a city, whatever suits your needs.
  4. Make this page accessible by adding "/where" after your domain name. Find examples below.
  5. Always update your where page with your current location.

I hope that in the future many personal websites will have where pages.

Examples for /where pages

Here are my own websites and their respective where page URLs:

this website's where page
https://niqwithq.com/where
my travel blog's where page
https://niqs.reisen/where

Do you have a where page?

If you like the idea and implemented your own where page, please let me know. I'd be happy to add it on this page with your consent.
