Discussion on: Don't waste your time on a portfolio website

I agree with the main idea of the article. It's indeed not necessary to have a portfolio website to catch a new job opportunity. However, if one has time to spent/play around, a personal website is one of the best playgrounds to experiment with new technologies and, most of all, a possible way to truly express yourself on the internet. Personally, I disagree with the idea of using "ready-made" templates. It can make standing out harder and it makes me feel the person didn't give enough attention/care to their website, aka their "internet home". Again, totally a personal opinion. Nice article overall with great tips 😁.

btw, I love to spend weeks working on every version of my website: kaisermann.me

Great example of a text-based website, focused on coding and experimentation.

Thanks, Allison! The internet needs more personal and different websites 😬
