Couple ways: most common way is just to say "This is my homepage" or
"this is my weblog". Alternative is to look for a "foaf:made" - I made
this document.

<Person xmlns="http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/"
  <weblog rdf:resource="http://crschmidt.livejournal.com" />
  <homepage rdf:resource="http://crschmidt.net" />
  <made rdf:resource="http://crschmidt.net/" />
