I did not like Plaxo very much. I don't know if it was just me, but I had trouble with that site. I didn't feel like there was much direction, which is what I need when I'm dealing with technology. I found Linkedin to be easier to navigate, perhaps my experience with Plaxo helped. With the personal website, it was a little more work but I felt as though I got to tailor the specifics exactly how I wanted. I would definitely prefer a personal website, I just need a little more practice with it.
