It's been years since I updated my personal portfolio. For a freelancer, a portfolio is everything and keeping it up-to-date can be a painstaking and arduous task. Once you settle into long term employment the portfolio becomes less and less important until it's barely relevant at all. The company has a reguarly updated portfolio of course - but what do I need one for?

Maybe it's just to keep a record of things I've done outside what goes in the company portfolio. Maybe it's to share something with the wider creative community, to convince myself that someone actually might look at it. Maybe it's to separate myself from the company I work for in some way. The truth is that it is because I had dust gathering over an old portfolio I used as a freelancer and was sick of my workmates telling me to update it. 

I also thought it would be fun to keep a blog. Mostly for things I can bitch about on the internet.
