No offence but why you didn't keep your portfolio simple and more readable? To be more specific about my comment:
1) You could use text on your header in order to icons, to simplify your website's sections.
2) Why did you choose gradient background colors and lots of different colors?
3) Why do you have vertically aligned content (also they were placed in weird alignment)?
4) You say that "to see more, scroll" but my scroll ball doesn't work on your "scrollable" section.
5) Assuming that you are a junior developer. I saw that you have written an article about job searching. But for a junior development job, at least you should know basics of Semantic HTML Markups.

I don't judge your artistic choices but especially on a portfolio, I think you should keep it simple, readable and understandable.

I hope that I was helpful and you can find the job you are looking for.

Hi Burak. I appreciate the feedback.

I do like color and can get carried away with it sometimes. I can see your point that the color choices and the staggered content may have defeated the purpose of simplicity I was going for. But I felt that it was much simpler than my previous portfolio.

I am still learning and developing my design and coding skills. So I'm going to keep on updating and improving my portfolio.

Thanks again for your input!

I just wanted to clarify that I do not edit my articles after it has been posted to continue to receive constructive feedback on my decisions at the time. I only responded to your comment to answer your questions and further explain my choices in design.

Happy Holidays!
