In a comment to my previous post, Aaron raised the issue of my teaching portfolio not being a blog anymore. And I guess I should be ashamed to admit it, but I don't think that matters to me. I wouldn't necesarily want anyone to comment on my portfolio in my portfolio.
But I think his suggestion that each document have a separate blogger account might be a good one. I guess I feel bad about opening so many accounts, but that is probably foolinsh. Blogger probably doesn't care and might actually be happy to be able to boast of five more blogs. But it seems inefficient somehow.
What I was looking to do was set up something like Julie Lindsay has without my own website. I don't know that I need such a thing, but I wanted to try to develop one. If nothing else, it gives me access to my CV, for instance, anywhere in the world at any time. It is conveivable to me that I might someday be glad for that. I move around a lot, and I probably won't have the same ISP three months from now, so I can't just upload files there and expect to access them next year. I need something extremely portable. A website of my own or a blog-turned-portfolio would allow me to have that stuff out there no matter where I am.
I also think that if I keep this portfolio basically the way it is, it needs to have another post on that main page that gives some instructions or I need to include them in the post that's there. And I need to include some kind of contact information. I am, not done with this portfolio yet. Not by a long shot!
