I use my site as a method of blogging about my learnings, as well as sharing information about projects I have previously, or are currently, working on in my spare time.
I'm a GNU/Linux user, a big advocate for the Free Software Movement, and the IndieWeb movement and I try to self host my own services where possible, instead of relying on other providers.

We've been using emoji for this in the past, which works well as long as everyone remembers what the emoji reflect - I often forget - but doing it this way makes a lot of sense, and having them to be machine-parseable is a benefit!
