How to Improve Your Online Writing Portfolio

Do you need a better way to share your published articles, stories and excerpts online? Contently has a free tool t0 upgrade your online writing portfolio.

On today’s edition of the Morning Media Menu, Social Times editor Devon Glenn discussed Contently’s new Portfolio+ network. Glenn also shared advice for making your portfolio look its best online. Follow this link to sign up for the new service.

Press play below to listen to the podcast. Here’s more from SocialTimes: “Writers, like designers, are asked to show samples of what they can do before they are hired … Contently’s design gives freelancers who might be overlooked on other sites a chance to show, not tell, what they can do. (It’s a phrase that writers hear a lot!) Writers can search for their stories online or enter them manually into the system. A flexible interface displays the images, text excerpts, and share counts for Web articles on one page that writers can adjust to suit their needs. Old-school journalists can also upload copies of their print work.”

Below, we’ve embedded an infographic about the Portfolio+ program. What do you think?
