Yesterday I spent a little bit of my day importing posts from my old blog on my website to this blog. Why, though? Why does it matter?
I think it matters because I have been writing a blog for a while. It was just hosted on my webpage, which serves more as a portfolio than a true blogging medium. It was not the centerpiece, but buried in a link. A prominent link, but a link all the same. I have all of these ideas that I have been sitting on, almost hiding, for some time now, and now they are finally out in the world for more to see. They are no longer kind of hidden thoughts, but prominently out there. I even changed over my twitter webpage link to this one!
I think once I’m truly in a place I want to be professionally, I will combine the two, make the blog the more prominent. The portfolio information will be there, but not play as important of a role. I won’t need to highlight things like my education and projects so much as show off what I have been doing in my library through my blog, which I am starting to do now.
What do you think? Am I being a bit redundant? Should I combine things now and forget it? Or is it smart to focus more on the blogging and leave the portfolio be?
