So here’s the problem I see happening as I begin to create my Gateway portfolio — I have all of these visions for how I want it to look, but I am extremely technology-challenged. In looking at all of the awesome pages that I’ve found not only from past cohorts but also just ones that I’ve stumbled across on the internet, I feel like the challenge for me is going to be forcing myself to not spend hours and hours trying to perfect the way a picture looks or the style of tabs at the top of the page. I think I need to set realistic expectations for how this portfolio is going to look and turn out.
Also, I don’t know if anyone else is feeling this way, but I feel like I’m probably focusing too much on the look of the page instead of the content — something I am just now realizing as I write this blog post. While first impressions are important, I think I’m going to start exploring some more content-based additions (hopefully ones that are easy to add to a portfolio) instead of just focusing on layout and aesthetic appeal. Hmmm… now to explore some more….
