Who else has brought it back to their own website?

Are there any documented examples of people moving from a bunch of 3rd party services like Flickr, Vimeo, or Tumblr "back" to the centralized, does-everything, monolithic my-own-website model?

I'm using a lot of specialized, social, and even commercial services outside of my own website, but they all seem to suck in ways I would normally just fix on my own. Lately, for example, the lack of detailed, realtime visitor stats, or any stats at all, has really been bugging me. Especially with paid services. Sometimes I feel like the idea is just to collect my content and profit, which is a stretch but sort of connects the crappy-features dots.
I've started little moves in the my-own-website(s) direction, and so far the time expenditure hasn't been bad and it's been pretty fun.
Has anybody else on the web jumped back the same way? I can't find any articles but would like to know if the hive panopticon has seen anything.
