Hi there, and thank you so very much!
The internet is pretty dang amazing. I first met my best friend Kyle online, and he taught me a whole lot! It’s pretty amazing for me to think I might not have met him or any of my other wonderful friends (or moved out here to Burbank) if it hadn’t been for the internet. I learn a lot from people online, I get to help out a lot of people online, and the internet helped my work get seen and it’s how I got offered a job at Disney. It’s pretty rad!
I’m quite glad that you found my post about the importance of portfolios to be helpful! I think it would be ace for you to have a portfolio online that is separate from your blog. This way, you can keep it nice, tidy, and share only your bestest work. Your blog should be updated often but don’t forget to keep your portfolio updated with your newest and best work too because you are always improving. It’s easier than ever to have a nice portfolio online now, so you should have no problem at all!
It’s really nice to see people being helpful (and reachable) as their schedules allow! I’m always amazed with how busy people can be and still have time to share knowledge, or help out. I like being helpful because it’s a good feeling to help others, and because so many people were nice to me as I learned (and still learn!). I’ve always been very thankful for that.
You have a very excellent aspiration! There are a lot of rad jobs in the industry and you should be able to find something you love to do! Keep working hard, and don’t ever give up! It took me a little time for it to happen after I got out of school, but I’m so happy I stuck in there through the toughest of times. You will keep learning more and more wonderful things! :D Continue to be awesome, and meet very cool people, learn, and rock!
