The idea of having the opportunity to design my e-portfolio to my specifications was exciting. I knew what I was going for and I couldn’t wait to get started. I knew I wanted to start with a color scheme that was both simplistic and minimal but because of the themes, I was limited to what I could do.
However, the work I had to put in, in order to make my vision come to life was beyond frustrating. Nothing was working for me at all and I felt myself going in circles with trying to put my page together. I thought my e-portfolio would be the best way to brand myself rather than having to resort to a social networking site but I struggled continuously. I definitely need help because I’ve realized I can’t do it alone. Hopefully, with time and with much needed help, I can get my e-portfolio to where I want it to be and it can be something I am proud of.
Because I don’t participate in many social networking sites, I want to successfully display my e-portfolio that will be beneficial towards my future and maybe even my career goals. Moving forward, I plan on doing this by:
- Picking a theme that works for me; a theme that will allow me to structure my work in a way that is easy for viewers to navigate.
- Using (good) images; I am not a photographer whatsoever but people associate a good photo which helps draw viewers attentiontherfore, it would hurt to include some visuals in my e-portfolio.
- Filling my e-portfolio with my best content/work
- Keeping it up to date
- Connecting via social media platforms
