I am now saying goodbye to the Gateway course blog, but this is not by no means a final goodbye to blogging. In fact, this is just the end of a the beginning of my venture into new media writing. I can say with confidence that over the course of the semester, my feelings towards blogs and new media have undergone a drastic makeover. I still value traditional academic writing a lot, but I certainly now see the important niche new media writing has in the overall landscape of the discipline.
At the end of this post you will find the link to my gateway course ePortfolio, a permanent digital home for all of the work I did this semester, as well as some past writing I have done in college. There is also a reflective component that goes along with each of the pieces you will see. Putting together an entire website was at times difficult and frustrating, but was very rewarding. I am proud of the site I am about to present and think it showcases what I have done pretty well. My ePortfolio also is not necessarily a finished product–I plan to keep building on it and adding more work as I continue writing.
So, here it is: my ePortfolio. I hope you enjoy!
