Writing a blog entry is not exactly new for me; but certainly I'm no expert at it. I've blogged once. I must admit that I'm intrigued by it, especially in the sense of sharing information, the receiving and giving of interpretation on any given subject matter, and a general overall sense of solidarity.
I have a vested interest in the portfolio process. It's a great tool for the development and enhancement of future endeavors. It's also an excellent way to discover the many merits an Academic portfolio has to offer, like building your digital identity, publishing a video online, adding voice to the portfolio and being in control of what will be included in your collection of work. It really is an exciting and electrifying method to master.
I did set up a blog at WordPress.com, but since I already had Google docs for the pass few years, I decided to just keep everything in one place. Once the portfolio is completed, I hope to have a professional document that can be shared with future employers, a reference point to refer to when new information can be added when revising resumes and a great confidence builder during interviews that goes beyond what is included in a standard resume.
