So I’ve started working on my e-portfolio a bit and have picked out a theme I like and everything, but I haven’t uploaded any of my writing to it just yet. I still want to tweak a couple of my assignments from this semester, so hopefully I’ll have a bit of time to work on that over Thanksgiving break.
I think I’m mainly going to try to just have my portfolio focused on my assignments for this class. I’ve been debating what else I would add, and if anything I think I’d like to put assignments related to the stuff I talk about in my papers from Writing 220.
In my “contextual introduction” to the blog, I talk about research and how the type of thinking involved in doing research translates into the kind of thinking I do when writing. I think that idea will do a good job of changing the way my portfolio comes off, but also I definitely don’t want the whole idea of research stuff to take over the entire thing and become the focus.
One thing I’m still struggling with is trying to figure out what background images to use! The theme I chose allows for a photo as the background for pretty much everything, and I really liked that, but now I’m having trouble deciding what I want to use as my photo. Right now the background image is a picture I took of a bicycle. I chose it because it’s super colorful and eye-catching, but other than that it doesn’t have a whole lot to do with my portfolio. But maybe that’s okay. I don’t know.
After re-reading my blog post I think the gist of it is that I still pretty much have no concrete idea of how everything’s going to turn out.
