Yeah sure. But is portfolio really a thing that is the best way to show you can build a custom app? I'd rather use my other projects which usually are a lot more complicated than any of my portfolio sites have been. That might just be me, though.

I do get that when you're freelancing you might need to have a portfolio site to highlight the stuff that you have done. :)

It might not be the best place to do it, but it's the first thing anyone sees when they google you (hopefully). This is why I want my portfolio site to really represent who I am, and I don't want to give anyone the chance to say "Ugh, it's Wordpress, he doesn't know what he's doing".

Of course on my portfolio site, I show off my most interesting projects, which are meant to impress. The portfolio site itself exists to pull them in, and the projects exist to pull them over the line.

I get that. I really do. I might set up a portfolio page again in the future if I feel the need for it. Especially if I'd start freelancing but that's not something I see myself doing any time soon. :)

Yeah, that's only fair. I need to constantly be selling myself, so the portfolio site is very important.
