What to do with my website?

A few years ago, I decided to leave LiveJournal and host my own Wordpress blog on my own domain. That was fun for a while but I missed the community part of LJ so I came back, but my website's been sitting there doing nothing ever since, and since I crossposted all of my posts between my blog and LJ (mostly, see below!) I have my LJ invisible to Google to avoid duplicate content penalties.

I'd like to actually do something with my website now, but I'm having a hard time figuring out what. I thought about aggregating all of my content together like FriendFeed does, but I'd want a little more... control than that: one LJ post is more important than a whole day's twitters, etc.

And to complicate things further, when I was crossposting to LJ from Wordpress, I had it configured to point people at my Wordpress blog for "read more" and comments, so I want to at least keep that available, even if only via direct links.

I think I'd want to combine LJ, Twitter and Flickr. Maybe Delicious.

Anyone have any ideas -- either presentation or back-end -- as to the best way to go about doing that? I'm really not coming up with much.
