As I hit the button making my e-portfolio public, I sighed a deep sigh of relief. As I examined my page’s introductory area, I felt a sense of pride in what I accomplished.
I made my portfolio what I wanted it to be. My site, relative to others, isn’t very flashy. I have a gray background surrounding a white and black center. There isn’t much aesthetically, but that’s exactly what I wanted.
Writing is what I’m interested in pursuing, so when I thought about my blog, I made it for potential employers. I don’t think my employers will want to sift through pages of colorful displays. They want to examine my writing. Therefore, I gave them what they wanted. Everything in my portfolio efficiently directs my audience towards my writing.
I included all of my columns for the Michigan Daily, my blog posts, an about me, an about this blog, a resume, and all of my Minor in Writing projects. (I’m waiting on including my academic writing until I’m a junior or senior and my papers are stronger.) Everything either ties back to the fact that I’m a writer or includes a piece of my writing.
To be completely honest, I’m struggling to describe the blog in any more detail because there really isn’t much more to describe. I wanted the writing to speak for itself instead of any aesthetic framework, so reading my work honestly explains my portfolio more than this explanation. If you’re really interested in my writing, I’d advise for you to take a look at the writing that I placed on the portfolio.
In the spirit of my blog’s straightforwardness, I’m going to end this post. I hope you all (and Shelley) understand why it makes sense that this blog remain at three-hundred words haha.
