This week, I began setting up my website on Weebly. I have a Weebly account already, but I set it up with the intention of using it as a blog and not a website. I made a new account for this website though, so as it is not connected to my blog.
Weebly has an easy to use interface that is incredibly easy to navigate. This makes it a useful site to use for people learning web design.
The domain name I chose is sarahashleyglenn.weebly.com. This name is simple enough for a portfolio, as it is just my name. I am making this website as a portfolio for my future career, and I want it to have a serious, professional theme.
The name of theme I chose on Weebly is called “journey”. It looks like it has the feel of a professional website where I will be able to market myself in a positive way. I like the neutral color scheme and how it will allow me to add a few pastel colors in it along the way to brighten it up. It looks like it is easy to navigate, which is important. I don’t like having to click on multiple links to get where I am going, and I know that future employers don’t either.
I am looking forward to creating my own website. After seeing a lot of the websites previously made in this class by students who have already taken this class, I know that it will increase my chances of getting a job that I am passionate about and want to pursue as my career. Technology and online portfolios are an ever growing way to market oneself.
I am looking forward to bettering my website and making it an attractive, quality one.
