My social map is totally decentralized but I want it back on my blog

Here is a pic of my social map and the social software I use all the time for some (Twitter, Seesmic, Flickr, my blog) and some very occasionally.

We used to have our social online presence very centralized, for me it was my blog. The current trend is very interesting, everything is decentralized and we only use the best services by type of media (text, photos, video, music, events etc). Everything we post is totally decentralized this is why tools like Mybloglog, Friendfeed and Socialthing start to gather all of these for us and it is a great idea.

The challenge for Friendfeed and the like is that while I really like all my services gathered in one place, I would rather that these would be centralized on my blog instead of a third party service. Yes you can cross post or add badges, but it’s not really like a center feed in your blog. What I like about my blog is that it is my space, I own it, I can customize it and change it, I do not depend on anybody (except the software and host, TypePad of course, needless to say).

in case you want to check out my decentralized self here are my friendfeed, twitter, facebook, linkedin, seesmic, youtube, mybloglog and flickr profiles :)
