For someone who is usually so scatterbrained when it comes to making writing decisions, I’ve been surprisingly focused when it comes to designing my ePortfolio. With the timeliness of my beginning to apply to internships to this summer, the idea of having a synthesized, digital timeline of my writing development to present to potential employers has been particularly motivating.
With that said, I have had a general idea of the “other writing” I want to include in my ePortfolio. Optimally, I’d like to incorporate my personal food/restaurant blog, some kind of sample from my internship at Food Network Magazine this summer, and my Writing Minor Blog. However, I haven’t determined which portions of those writings and in which way I want to include. I would love some suggestions!
For my food blog, I’m toying with the idea of linking to one of my favorite/most impressive posts, and from there my readers can explore the rest of the blog. Do you guys think that will be a thorough enough representation of my blog?
I’m most indecisive about which professional writing samples to include. Some of the samples that do not necessarily display the most creativity utilized a lot of sales related skills. A lot of the examples are pitch presentations, restaurant guides, or data compilations rather than creative writing. Do you guys think those kinds of examples would be valuable to include as well?
I just wish we could go back and play around with Wix templates more! But I know the final product will be something I’m really proud of.
