After spending around 3 hrs searching for a photo for my E-port, I finally found one that will also provide me with a good theme. It’s a picture of a bicycle, parked on a rocky shore overlooking the straits of Mackinac and the Mackinac bridge. It will work great because I can tie in a theme of discovery, meaning that I’ve spent a lot of time in the Minor in Writing trying to discover what drives me to be a writer.
Another reason it works great is because it allows me to tie in a little bit of Mackinac Island theme as well, which originally was my plan. I’ve spent a lot of time there and I was thinking that I would describe how the island captures my imagination, which ties into the creativity element that I really enjoy when it comes to writing.
Although I really do like my new E-port, I am still also considering using my old E-port and just transferring in the new artifacts and doing some new reflective writing. I’ve received some feedback that the newer one looks better and more professional. For that reason, I will probably stick with it, but I am very open to more feedback if you want to check out both links below and tell me which one you like more.
I feel that the newer theme easier to understand and navigate. It also incorporates somewhat of a nature theme, which I think would work well for future jobs I may apply for, since I would like to do environmental communications.
