en WordPress.com Forums › Support Portfolio website Author Posts November 25, 2011 at 12:47 pm #760873 gorahMember Hi I am trying to get my head around creating a good WordPress website to showcase my copywriting portfolio. For the time being I want to pick a free theme – just so I can experiment and play without making a purchase. My main questions are: 1 I need to upload work samples – sometimes even a booklet of samples on a given subject. Which format should I use? Downloadable PDFs? Or some other format? 2 I might need to introduce each sample, with a few words of text. Could anyone suggest suitable themes? I feel a bit overwhelmed with it all at the moment, to be honest. I have created WordPress sites before, but trying to create something more sleek and professional to showcase my work is new to me. Any advice gratefully received.
