ENGins | The Tech News You Want
Your Engineering Inspiration for Tuesday 21 January 2020

Have you set up a portfolio page on ENGins?

Portfolios offer a brilliant way for users to pull in information from all over the Web so that they can be seen in one place, enabling you to show people the areas of engineering you're interested in, and projects that you're working on.

You can pick and choose what is displayed on your portfolio: you can include a bio; pull in posts from your blog or Twitter; or just show people what stories, events, and books interest you (by adding them to your favourites).

For more advice on setting up a portfolio, and details on how to incorporate different widgets on your page, just check our guide.

Very best,

Rose Grey
Managing Editor
