Web Portfolio Response

In this article I learned a lot about how to make a good web portfolio. It was good to know that even thought you may have taken a class on how to make one, it is good to have a good understanding of what their purpose is they key components. You need to keep in mind its purpose and make sure you fulfill that purpose while creating it. You have to keep in mind that you will be getting feedback and be sure to present the correct pieces of work in your portfolio. You want to show how you have grown overtime. You get a chance to explain why you wrote what you wrote and it gives your work a little bit more or a personal edge. The person looking over your work will be able to see where you are coming from. You also get a chance to present a portfolio so that others may get a chance to hear and review your work. It sounds a lot different when the person who created the work is reading it. You can't fake your abilities in a portfolio, it is concrete proof that you can accomlish such things as writing or art work. You also get a chance to review what you put into your portfoio, this gives you the chance to perfect your work and make sure you LOVE what you are putting up for review. You will learn a lot from revising your work and will only further grow.
With a web portfolio, you need to make sure things are easily found and the navigation isn't confusing. Everything is linked together and compared or contrasted. With the web portfolio everything looks every put together, organized, and professional. You can personalize it to your audience and grab their attention much easier. It is more fun to do a portfolio on the web and you can show what you have learned and how you have applied it to real life. Your audience is real. Overall, web portfolios are the more practical way of showing your work to people. The web is everything in this century. Your work can be shown to anyone from prospective employers, etc.
