    Using Tumblr for professional online portfolios?

    Hi, new here. I was just wondering what the overall opinion was on using Tumblr as a place to build a professional online portfolio, specifically a CG animation portfolio website. Something simple and clear, like:

    http://portfolios.tumblr.com/

    If it looks professional, is logical and easy to navigate, has no ads, and well-structured with all the relevant information easy to find - then I see no reason why a professional portfolio can't be built on a tumblr blog.

    Heck, even Deviantart has the ad-free, clean-cut looking "portfolio" feature now.

    Although Tumblr may be great, it doesn’t seem as professional as some other sources that you can utilize. Tumblr is for blogging, and frankly, it’s geared toward the younger population who populate it with fandom GIFs, delicious pictures of food, and kitties.

    If you want something that’s going to go a step past the Tumblr portfolio, you should look into having your own website for your portfolio.

    As a graphic design major, I know we’re required to have our own online portfolios. I was introduced to Easy WebContent a few months ago. It’s an easy to use website builder that I use as my portfolio. It really makes everything more professional and more serious. And the tools and add-ons that the site builder provides give more options for customization. EWC offers more than just a site builder, but also an HTML editor as well. It wraps up the whole domain and editing package into one, which is really convenient. They offer a trail period for their products, so you should give it a go! It may make all the difference!
