I was reading this article the other day about tips for building and optimizing an online portfolio and it made me think. How often is often enough to update your online portfolio? The suggestions in the article are great, but the one I think many people (including myself) often forget is the last one “Always update your portfolio.” I find that I am often too busy doing actual work to update my portfolio. In fact, I have let it languish for years and years.
What do you think? How often do you update your portfolio?

The U.S. Forest Service Page about Fall Colors in 2013
I'm back with a site that might seem a little out of date, after all, for many of you in the northern hemisphere it might already be snowing and winter. But Fall is my favorite season, and I found this site on the U.S. Forest Service that I really liked. I hope you like it too.

What inspires you? Do you have a favorite site you visit for inspiration? Or are there just designs that you think are particularly good? Are there people you like to read on social media for inspiration?

Whew! November was challenging. I had a lot to do all over the place (not just here) and sometimes November seems like it has as few days as February in it. Anyway, I'm back now, and ready to get going.
In case you want to know what I was up to while I was gone. Here are some highlights:
- I completely deleted a website by mistake - that was a very bad day. And while I was backing up the site, the backups did not include the site database where all the content was, so I had to spend a long time rebuilding the site content from my notes and Google cache.
- I was working on a novel.
- I caught the flu (just in time for Thanksgiving, yay!
- My dad broke his collarbone (also just in time for turkey day).
- I got most but not all of the videos edited for a new book by Julie C. Meloni on HTML and CSS. When it's done I'll post more about that.
- I got some preparation done for the multiple birthdays and holidays that happen in my family in December.
- I did not go insane. :-) (arguably)
How was your November?
And don't forget, even if I'm not always posting here, you can often find me on Twitter
. There you can find out more about some of the above stuff too, if you're interested.
