The problem with a personal site, whether diary, blog, photo album, whatever, is that it’s not always, as they say, “safe for work.”
This comes particularly into light when you’d like to show somebody a site. In my case, I was hoping to, perhaps, show off my Web skills to somebody at the business schools I’m applying to. Show myself to be more than just a GMAT score, a GPA, another copy of a standardized essay, all that. So, I needed a new space.
I’d used wadearmstrong.com as a more professional-sounding URL in past job searches. Now that I have a job, I don’t so much need wadearmstrong.com out there for job purposes; remodeling it for this whole b-school app thing seemed to make sense.
So her it is — me, spun for an audience of Directors of Admissions. Check out “wadearmstrong.com”:http://wadearmstrong.com!
