That’s how I feel about starting my E-Portfolio!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I named it Sincerely, Sarah. Since Tuesday, whenever I have a spare minute I mess around with my website. I’ve changed the theme a million times but I think I’ve found one that I like!
When I started working on it I first decided that I needed to figure out the purpose. Since I am applying to law school and plan on putting the link to my e-portfolio on my resume, I really want it to be very professional. I saw a lot of themes that I really liked because they were fun but I decided they maybe weren’t appropriate for the message I am trying to convey. I don’t want it to lose my personality though, so I decided on a theme with just a bit of color. I figure law school admissions looking at my site should see that I am more than just a good student and talented writer, but an outgoing and colorful individual, as well!
I also decided that I wanted to have two separate areas on my site… “professional” and “creative”. This way the viewer of the site can find exactly what they are looking for. I guess I hope that a law school admittance counsel would look at my argumentative writing but maybe also take the time to check out some of my creative writing, too! I think my engaging and outgoing personality along with my unique sense of humor is something that will set me aside from other students. My hope is that my e-portfolio will help me do that!!
I’ve considered the idea of music or media but I’m worried that it will take away from the professional aspect. What do you think? Maybe I could utilize media in the “creative” section of my site but veer away from it on the “professional” aspect? What about the theme? Is it appropriate? SO MANY QUESTIONS!!!!
