Create A Quick Journalism Portfolio With Contently

If you’re a journalist without an online profile, your excuses for not having one yet probably start with lack of time or web design talent, and include a slew of legitimate roadblocks including not knowing what to include or how to present it, not having extra cash to buy or host your own domain, or not knowing how to promote it once it exists.
