Pimpin’ my portfolio

It gives me a certain comfort to have all of my works in the one location.

Now that the messy task of fixing the broken links on this website is, temporarily at least, over and done with, I’ve been working on a better way to present the various books, theses, websites and projects that I’ve either produced or been involved with over the years.

I originally used the Portfolio Post Type plugin, which creates a custom post taxonomy for portfolio items, and the Ultimate Addons for Gutenberg plugin, which makes it easier to create fancy-looking blocks on pages and posts.

Since switching to the Chaplin theme, I’ve resigned myself to using Jetpack to display portfolio posts instead.

In any case, I’ve now come up with a new Portfolio page, which simply lists all of my portfolio items.

At this stage I’m mostly concentrating on my poetry publications prior to 2014. For each work, I’ve tried to provide some contextual information, metadata, links and a PDF download.

In cases where I’m not able to provide a download—for example, my two full-length poetry collections were only published in print, and are both now out of print—I guess I’ll need to come up with some other solution.

Eventually the Portfolio page will also feature other non-poetry projects and more recent books. More on that in due course!
