Well, I haven’t posted anything since October, and frankly I haven’t done much since October save for a bit of job searching that didn’t go anywhere. I think part of the problem is my lack of a portfolio. I haven’t finished my SimpleBlog or even worked on it in months, but I still have my Tile Matching Game to show off, so that’s what I’m going to do.
The first thing I’m doing today is getting a portfolio link page set up here on my ElectricSquirrel.net coding blog.
1:28pm – Work begins. Loading up FileZilla to find the last edition of my Tile Matching Game. Of course, there’s a new version of FileZilla to download, so while that’s going I’ll write up a description of the Tile Matching Game in the blank new page I’ve got open in annother window.
1:46pm – I’ve added the page, but something went wrong with WordPress and instead of loading the page when you click the button, it takes you to a list of dirctory contents. Not good.
1:51pm – Oh for goodness sake, I already had a ‘Portfolio’ folder and now it’s linked to by the page. I should be able to fix that…
Alright that worked fine.
I should also add the two websites I worked on to the Portfolio page.
2:03pm – Alright I added the websites to my portfolio. Hopefully now people will come to my coding blog and say ‘Oh, this person has done things before! We should totally hire them!’ and not ‘This person may be a college grad, but how do I know they know their stuff?’
We shall see!
I’ll admit I thought this would take more than a half hour to do. I suppose I should get to work on my other hibernating project, my SimpleBlog.
First, where did I leave off…
Ahh, it looks like I last did some work in December, I just didn’t write about it here on my Coding blog for whatever reason.
2:35pm – Ahh yes, I was struggling with pagination for moving through the entries in the blog, and had just solved the problem. The next stage of the blog is a difficult one; logging in.
2:56pm – I’m not really making any progress. I need to take a break and read up on the techs I was using before.
