I feel like there's two paths to take to show off your code. GitHub, of course. However, it's not a perfect metric. If you don't have time to code every day or aren't writing 'commitable' code very often but still do meaningful project work, maintaining a portfolio website that you've made yourself can be equally, if not more, meaningful than an active GitHub profile. You can still outline your work and learning on a portfolio site through archives, blog posts, etc. It's also a place to show off your development skills! This can be especially helpful for recruiters that aren't programmers, but will still be wowed by your site.

OMG, you have given me such relief. I was very upset at myself because I thought that employers would reject me for this reason. I am still working on my portfolio site and I will start putting my blog posts on there.
Thank you sooo much for your comment.

You should Still use git and gitlab/github to store your code and configurations.

I use it to store my Emacs configures, and use it to move code/data/configs between different computers.

And using it for notes is a Good use.

Might recommend that you use Emacs/Org-mode for documentation.

Easy to generate different documents from the org-file.
Easy to do simple graphs with tools in org-file and external tools.
Easy to write example code within the documentation with Org-mode.

And Emacs got Magit mode for doing everything, yes everything, with Git.
