Phew! I finally got my portfolio site up. After polling advice from many different people in terms of a domain name, I decided to go with Drew's advice, which was just to keep wertle.com and make the front end my portfolio site.
Drew's reasoning was that wertle.com is quirky enough to be distinct (important with a common name like mine) but short enough to be easy to remember. Plus, it means I don't have to wrangle another domain name.
Worry not, the personal site is still there, it's just in the back.
The portfolio site isn't as polished as I'd like, but all the content is there. I just needed to put it up because it's time to stop dawdling (companies are already starting to scour the ETC website to look over us). Next I need to add the XO Game Jam result under projects.
Yay, it's nice to check something off my to-do list before making the drive back to Kentucky.
