Another dot in the blogosphere?

A living e-portfolio

Posted on: August 13, 2015

I tweeted this recently.

I started my journey as an independent education and technology consultant a year ago. Since then, my blog, Twitter feed, YouTube videos, and other online artefacts have been key to making new connections for me.

This blog, in particular, has provided at least three functions:
1) It is means for people to evaluate what I might have to offer;
2) It has been a repository for me to recall and showcase my work; and
3) It is a way for people to contact me.

I maintain my blog as the main component of a living e-portfolio. It is living because I blog daily and edit other pages regularly. One result of doing this is being listed at or near the top of Google searches on topics that matter to potential clients.

The best thing about maintaining a living e-portfolio is how I do not need to make claims or prove my worth. My work is an open book and visitors can decide if they like what they see and wish to see more in person.

Maintaining a living e-portfolio takes work. But I have found that the process of discipline has become a pleasurable one.

This might be like getting the satisfaction of trimming a bonsai tree. It takes effort and patience, and the results are not always obvious. But over time I learn from the process about the process.
