I hope everyone is having a great weekend and that you aren’t too stressed out (hehe wishful thinking…). If you’re feeling like I am, please enjoy this adorable GIF of a little duckling from my blog:
I just finished my draft of my capstone portfolio, which was way more entertaining than those history and energy politics papers I have blocked out for this time in my planner.
So far I really like the platform I am using, Weebly, and the design of the website. It is simple, but really functional. I also like the way I’ve separated my writing into left and right brain categories. I think this makes sense for my project and follows from my writer’s evolution essay. I have a lot of questions though:
- For one, does the left and right brain concept make sense to you guys? Does it work throughout the portfolio or are there places where it isn’t as effective? Also, does the reflective writing introducing the pieces make sense, or is it too jumbled? Do I push the theme too far?
- I also want to know how well the pieces I’ve chosen fit together. Do you feel like you get a good sense of my writing, or do you think I need to shuffle things around?
- Lastly, the developmental essay involves pictures that are linked to the pieces the paragraphs discuss. Does this make sense here, or is it more confusing than helpful?
If you want to check out the portfolio, I just published it here. Once I published it, I realized some of the things look different in draft form compared to the actual published portfolio, so I’ll need to go through and fix that.
