TUESDAY TIPS: Evernote for Portfolios

Portfolios are important in many different professions. Whether you’re a photographer, designer, stylist, make up artist, or model, at some point you’re going to want to display your work so others can decide if you’re the right fit for their project. A couple times a year, I spend time at Paul Mitchell the School Portland talking to students about how Evernote can help them build their portfolios, and I thought the information might help others get started with their own work. This is just a basic outline—use it as a starting point, and make it work for you.

Moving to WordPress.com

I decided to pull the trigger on moving my sites to WordPress.com. I really hope Posterous survives the Twitter acquisition, but I'm not sticking around long enough to find out. I'm also working on eliminating my hosting account at Dreamhost. $120/year was fine when I was hosting a bunch of custom sites, but I don't … Continue reading Moving to WordPress.com
