Okay, in my head that was to the tune of “reunited and it feels so good.” I’m not entirely sure why I put that, it’s late and my brain is completely fried.
But anyways, I really am done. I am so happy with my final portfolio. It’s crazy that someone who came into this class without any knowledge of website building could leave with a semi-professional looking product. It has really taken a lot of work but I feel like it definitely captures myself. I wanted my website to be really simple and modern. I didn’t want there to be a ton of bells and whistles, just a small design and then my work. I decided to put in categories of the writing that I showcased and then also have an about me and resume page in case I want to utilize this portfolio for grad school apps or as a supplement to my resume.
I think that if I were to continue working on it, I could add more pictures that correspond to each of my pieces of writing. Currently, I have a picture that goes with each category if you click on the broad tab and not an individual piece of work but I think there would be the possibility for expansion. I considered pairing the pieces with pictures while I was creating this portfolio but then decided that I would rather have the writing speak for itself.
I think that the opportunity to create a online portfolio has really been a challenge and a blessing. I am so happy that it is finished and I am really happy with the final product (sometimes I go to the website just to look at it and marvel in the fact that I did that myself, lame I know). I hope you guys like it too.
Here’s the link for the site: jordanboeve.wordpress.com If anyone has any comments or suggestions, I’ d love to hear them, even if they are after the assignment is due. I plan on using this for our Writing400 course so new ideas would be great.
Thanks for a great semester guys. I think we really became close as a class and I love that. I hope I get to see each of you in the 400 course! 🙂
