Me, the techie?

Not gonna lie, working with two unfamiliar tech platforms simultaneously this week was a little overwhelming. After settling on a Tumblr page for my remediation project, I got straight to finding and organizing content for my blog. As I said in my last post, finding advertisements, photos, videos, and news stories was the easiest part. Attempting to create an infographic about Sabra Hummus, on the other hand, was the trickier part. The latest issue I have run into is not being able to download my infographic as PDF without paying $20 plus. If anyone has any suggestions regarding how I can share my infographic for free by downloading it instead of solely sharing the link, please let me know! I’ve attached links to initial drafts of both my Tumblr page and my infographic below:

Surprisingly, I’ve found myself enjoying the ePortfolio creation process. I came into it with a clear purpose and clear audience, which has shaped my mock-up. I want my ePortfolio to be clean, professional, and simple to navigate. I want it to be the kind of thing I can attach at the end of an email to a potential employer alongside my resume and cover letter. Thus, I definitely want to include extracurricular writing pieces as well. I’m a little worried about the challenges I’m anticipating once I start integrating actual content into my portfolio, but for now I’m liking the process of design and navigation. Here’s what I’ve accomplished as of now:

  1. Sarah,
    I am so so excited to see the final product of both your ePortfolio and remediation. As far as your remediation assignment goes, I think the tumblr looks great so far and it was a really good idea to add the info graphic. For your ePortfoio, I love that you decided to make it professional. It will definitely be a key talking point for any interviews and a really unique addition to your resume!

  2. Hi Sarah,

    I think both of them look great. I especially like your remediation project. I think the layout and the color choices matched with the theme very well. As an audience, I would love to read through your website and learn something more about hummus.
    In terms of eportfolio, it seems like you are having a very clear direction. I agree it would definitely help in your future contact with potential employer, but I believe the layout and content will need to be paid very close attention as you starts your actual project.
    Good luck to both of your projects!
