    Hi, I'm brand new to these forums, and I'm willing to bet that I'm newer to web design than many of you on here.
    I've decided to go ahead and try building an online portfolio, but I've never built an online portfolio before (unless you count things like Facebook and Myspace), so I could really use some ideas as far as good ways to go about this, any glaring mistakes that perhaps I'm making that I haven't caught, and constructive feedback.
    I may still be somewhat new to this, at least compared to some, but I've found that I love building websites, so I want to really dive into it, and hope that I can build a portfolio up that will be found attractive.

    Hi , Megan
    Welcome to forum and webdesign
    Actually I am quite new myself (to both ). But I still hope my opinion counts:rambo:

    What I like about your site:
    • Colors
    • Your photo > makes everything personal
    • Background - the idea
    • Logo - the idea
    What I like less:
    • Background- the idea is cool, but you can see the tiling on the "paper"
    • Main background - the brush samples would better be more sophisticated
    • Logo and two lines are taken from a different design.
    Overall site leaves a nice impression.

    Thanks for the feedback.
    The tiling issue is actually something I had all ready been debating what to do about. I know it can be easily fixed, but am concerned about it resulting in an even larger file size. I'm not sure if it would be worth the larger file size to lessen the repeating tile affect or not. Opinions?

    I guess that larger file size would be better in this very case

    Hi, Megan
    Tiling issue > I think the solution may be if you don't use tiling at all, but scanned paper page texture.
    I used one of those for one of my projects .
