An important but simple lesson that I've learned having been out of college for a few years and having moved on from my first job is to not neglect your website, no matter how busy and/or content you may be with your current job. Much easier said than done!
When I decided to start job hunting last fall, I realized I hadn't touched my website in at least two years. The domain had expired, the work was outdated, and the task was going to be big one. Which is the last thing you want to focus on when you decide you're ready to move on and make a change. I need to show prospective employers my work and had no convenient way to do so (weh!)
Now, I'm no longer job hunting and I try to maintain my website for a different reason - freelance opportunities and the pursuit of maybe possibly one day being self employed who knows we'll see okay? When you have a job, freelance work, and some semblance of a personal life, it's easy for the website to fall behind and feel out of date almost immediately. Which is why I'm finally arriving very, very late to the blog party. It's probably not even cool anymore, huh?
I've had Tumblrs, Blogspots, Wordpresses, etc etc that I inevitably let wither and die, but alas, I keep the dream alive. The goal is to keep this space up to date with current projects and happenings related to White Elk. Hopefully this will give people a sense of what's going on with me and know that I'm alive, despite my shiny new website that's already falling behind.
Wish me luck and thanks for reading (god I'm so lame.)
