So I’m struggling between making my Eportfolio a professional one or on the more creative side. I literally was thinking about making to different portfolios, one to have fun with, and one for law school/career purposes…but in class we came up with a couple of other options! I think it would be really cool to have a general Eportfolio that’s fun but elegant, and then have pages to separate the creative side (with some fun pieces I’ve written and some more media) and the more professional side to show how my writing has developed through college and what I’m capable of now.
When I was looking at the Eportfolio prompt, one of the questions that stuck out to me was: What media do you want to include in your portfolio, and why? At first, I wasn’t really sure how much media I’d want to incorporate into my portfolio. However, I thought of this idea where I could have a little video explaining each page…for example, a little video of me explaining why I chose this particular piece to re-purpose and re-mediate and what it means to me. That way, if there are other pages that don’t necessarily have anything to do with our class assignments, I can talk about why I chose to add those, and what I hope people get from it/what I want them to keep in mind. Even if I don’t end up doing this in the video format, I feel like I’d still like to write a little blurb/paragraph talking about what’s on the portfolio. What do you guys think?
I also think it would be really great to have a little life story page for my audience to get to know me and my experiences… This would make it easier to see my personality through my writing, and sometimes even help the readers imagine communicating with me as they read.
I guess I’m not really sure what I want to do with this Eportfolio because there are so many options…but I am really excited to play around with WordPress and see what I can do! 🙂
I’m also planning on travelling this summer and I might want to have a blog related to that, so maybe that could be part of this Eportfolio? Oh and I also wanted my Eportfolio to represent part of my personality, so I’m thinking of having a little theme for each page related to a country that I’ve visited, or really want to!
ahhh I have so many thoughts—-too many options isn’t good for an indecisive person.
…ps. I also really like horoscopes so I’m wondering if there’s a widget that tells you your horoscope for the day! haha. If not, I might post a link or something…
