I love my portfolio!!
I went through multiple different stages of drafting and reworking my portfolio, and of course there are things that I am still unsure of and that I will continue to tweak, but considering that it is a work in progress I’m really happy with where it is going.It is the simplistic idea that I started with and I’m really glad I kept it.
That being said, there are things that I have had to compromise in the process. I would have liked not to have a menu bar on most of the pages because it seems cluttered to me, but this was really unavoidable. Besides, it doesn’t look half as bad as I though it would.
One thing I did not have to compromise on was my vision of the website being about framing my writing instead of showcasing me. I REALLY didn’t want there to be a site out there to honor Lisa Miller, as silly as that sounds. I wanted it to be about the pieces of writing that I have created which should be considered completely separate from me as a person.
Here is where the portfolio is at right now:
After I’ve handed this version in tomorrow I absolutely plan to revise revise revise until I get exactly what I want. I’m not exactly sure what that is yet but I know after my semester of revision that after revisiting the portfolio I can hone my ideas into a near-perfect presentation of what my writing is.
You guys have all been great and I hope the rest of your college careers are just as great as this semester was. Good luck!
