Should I do a super-featured personal portfolio website?

Whether montengero to do a super fancy personal website? With awesome features, effects? A modern design?

I just look at websites of other developers who like as not sit without work - 90% is dry odnostranichnikov-summary with Github Pages. The other 10% is steep portfolio Awwwards, etc.)

Do yourself a personal website, and I found myself thinking that I always something in this painstaking finish. Time spent on it more than on work projects. Is it worth the invest, do you think? To it all someone is looking?

Solution
Do the website no, do not sit without work and day have to choose. Sometimes you want to do at least one page - but the question is "why?" to which there is no response and the website remains in the plans. All over purchase a domain years ago.

Decide the purpose of the site. Judging by your question - you website for more than doing for clients, for myself, such as anyone, who are you to deny.

If the goal is more orders, then my unproven for yourself IMHO - website-landing page made on the case with a couple of the original features to attract the attention of best. This designers need the wow effect, montangero the desired effect "a serious man, of great experience, make quickly, accurately and efficiently".
Exchange? Friends offline? Where orders are felled so) - Forrest commented on March 19th 20 at 08:47
Mostly word of mouth. Friends/acquaintances/former colleagues/former employers. Sometimes exchanges - three times there took a draft, then write proposals to work more. Maybe it's the fact that doing serious things, and these customers always a lot of work and a shortage of good specialists. - carmella.Haley91 commented on March 19th 20 at 08:50

Not much worth it. Also when doing too bothered for every little thing. The main thing to do smotretsa completed, but to improve it you can always.
Now the problem with this completeness, you will have to compromise) other people's projects easier to complete once than this) - Forrest commented on March 19th 20 at 08:49
@Forrest, Everything is easier than it seems. Need to look at your portfolio through the eyes of a potential customer. I have my first portfolio done and perfected throughout the year until it turned into a visual likeness of a red-light district in Las Vegas. The second portfolio (actual) consists of greetings and, in fact, the portfolio "Hello, my name is so-and-so, this is my work and phone number with email for communication". - Alba.Nad commented on March 19th 20 at 08:52
@Alba.Nad, your actual portfolio consists of an inscription Error establishing a database connection ;)

Well, you're not a developer, and composer. - Forrest commented on March 19th 20 at 08:55
@Forrest, works, checked on multiple machines.

The fact that I am not a developer, essentially a portfolio does not change. Unload the person who is viewing, and examples of work to show skill. - Alba.Nad commented on March 19th 20 at 08:58
@Alba.Nad, changes 100%. The website is not your field of work, in contrast to the developer. - Forrest commented on March 19th 20 at 09:01

Only if Your niche is websites for wow-effect.
And so - just probertite that you could sometimes speak, saying - "here take a look at my website so done." It's more about responsively and SVG.
Do not have wow effect. It's working with frontend frameworks. For wow effect is now mostly WebGL and so on. I don't work with him, but just the frontend, microanomalies and SVG trudge. - Forrest commented on March 19th 20 at 08:51
@Forrestso, once again:
IF Your niche is a wow effect
THEN the answer to Your question is Yes
OTHERWISE the answer is no*

* if tricked and special effects will be lost the main point of the website, and the exhaust will be below - morgan commented on March 19th 20 at 08:54
I understand you, but you wrote as if knowledge of the niche sites wow effect (which I don't specializers at all) don't need knowledge frameworks. I like the whole animation is built on the functional reusable components and I use the possibilities of the frames at 100%. For example, the same page of transystem need to understand how everything works, in what order, and so on. - Forrest commented on March 19th 20 at 08:57

If you actively promote it then Yes, if you're not enough like the others
And how it can actively promote? Ads from Google to buy, that is) - Forrest commented on March 19th 20 at 08:53
@Forrest, hundreds of ways including advertising at Google - elda66 commented on March 19th 20 at 08:56
@elda66, hundreds of ways, but you repeat what I already wrote? - Forrest commented on March 19th 20 at 08:59
@Forrest, well delve into Google information car promotion - elda66 commented on March 19th 20 at 09:02

Useless, neither customers nor employers do not come to your site, it makes sense for the current list of references.

You decide. that's 95% of your customers do not pay any attention to him. Therefore, all these chips just for you.
CDA to increase, in front of colleagues boast.
How statistics? Are you a customer? - Forrest commented on March 19th 20 at 08:57
@Forrest, mainly mediation. - Janis_Sipes55 commented on March 19th 20 at 09:00
