Featured image: Adobe Spark Post

When someone clicks on your author link, they will see all of your posts in reverse chronological order. This is a great portfolio to show prospective employers. (And you can bet that in these times, ed tech skills will be highly valued.) Here’s your chance to add one last post that will introduce your work to your viewer. 

You can “illustrate” this post with a few of your favorite posts using a WordPress embed. To embed one of your previous posts, just add a “WordPress Block” to your post and add the URL of the post you want to add.

Your embed will look something like this. It will have your featured image plus the beginning of your post. It will also be an active hyperlink to the post.
