The E-Portfolio is something I keep putting on the back burner. I guess I want to make it so perfect and give it all the time it needs and I never have sufficient sit down time for that. This portfolio that I’m sticking with was not the first I started to create. Or the second. It was the third. I finally think I have the layout that I want though. I really envisioned the set up like this so I’m happy with that.
Before you look at it here are some things you should know:
I have decided to take a more creative, poetic turn with this E-Portfolio. I know a lot of people are making theirs for an audience that’s comprised of future employers/ professionals. I think I want to reserve that for my Capstone Portfolio and do this one for me and for my peers my age. Therefore, there will be a lot poetry and creative pieces such as my intro and Why I Write. The intro is going to be a poem that I’ve yet to finalize and the Why I Write (which is up under the Projects tab, as is the re-purposing) is a creative non-fiction. I say non-fiction because it’s a dramatization of how the writing process feels in my mind. Therefore, I feel it is real to me and to my identity as a writer.
A lot of things on it are still from the template. I haven’t really made it very far on any of the pages. However, I know what I plan to put there and they are as follows:
- Projects – This is where the Why I Write, Re-Purposing, and Re-Mediation will be found. On that general page is going to be a description of Writing 220 and the Minor in general as well as why I chose the minor. It will also probably be a creative writing piece.
- “Artifacts” – Remains to be re-named. It’s where I’m going to put outside this class work. Likely it will be poetry that I write in my free time.
- The Ride – Also may be re-named. Not sure yet. However, that is where I’m going to put the process of all of this and of my pieces, etc. Basically, the reflection section.
- Contact – This is really just self-explanatory…
I’m very excited to finish up this re-mediation and put it in there because right now there’s just a place holder video. I’m also really excited about the “Artifacts” section because I rarely get to share my poetry and even lately haven’t had any real time to write about anything I care about. So I’m really excited for that aspect. My portfolio is kind of… I hate to say it, but dark. I’m intending the feel to be about discovery and therefore have an element of mystery to it. I don’t really know how that’s working so if you have feedback about that let me know!
Here’s the link. Have fun searching around and please feel free to leave comments either on this post or directly on the contact page of my portfolio (it could be cool to find out if it actually works…)
Thanks and I hope you enjoy it!
