While developing my portfolio I wanted to change the whole theme of my blog. My first theme was boring and really wasn’t what I wanted. I wanted a theme that represented something I had interest in. I even added a header picture to the blog to give it more creativity. I also wanted a theme that looked cleaner and had more simple widgets and links. I chose to use y documentary for the portfolio because I believe it is my best work out of all my major projects. The informal writing piece that I choice was a homework assignment for my Global Society class. I chose it because I received my highest grade on that paper out of all my assignments in that class. When revising my blog post I tried to give more of my insight to the post instead of just giving information. I added my own opinion and thoughts to the post to try and make it more interesting. I added any new information that I may have found out about a certain post or any updates about the outcome. This semester I learned that as a writer I create my best work when its something that interest that and me I can relate to. I learned to go more in depth with my writings because at first my writings were real plain and blunt, so I learned to do little things like giving reasons or explaining certain things in my writing instead of leaving it up to the reader to try and figure out why.
