This week

I'm facing my own "demons" a bit this week -- things that I've struggled with for years

  • BLANK PAGE EFFECT - WHERE TO START, WHAT TO WRITE, HOW TO MAKE IT LOOK (EVEN MILDLY) ATTRACTIVE:

In our web dev bootcamp, we have an assignment to make a portfolio page. It seems they're important for showcasing skills and future employability. Sure, go ahead an raise the bar of expectation on me!! :).

I'm finding it difficult to decide how to layout and decorate a page. I have the basic HTML structure and content. Not a real problem there - html, head, body, header, nav links, bio, projects links, etc. I've even met most of the basic requirements for the site.

But, I want the site to look good (if possible). Seeing the "inspiration portfolios" of experienced web devs is cool, but intimidating at the same time.

I'll do my best. I'll probably score a passing grade on the assignment. But, there's a component of pride/ego (I want it to look good, and want others to like it) and I'm stuck between that and a bit of "writer's block", not knowing really how "best" to proceed.

The only thing I can really think of is: iterate, iterate, iterate.
