Found a great site where you can create a digital portfolio or business card for free! Upload your own background, choose fonts,colors, be creative or more professional. You can add services you use, like Twitter, Facebook, Picasa, Posterous, Wordpress, Blogger and more. Use the link to add it to your email as a signature, or to your resume, or website. You could even add it to paper business cards that you create.

The site is called Flavors.me
Here is an example of one I created: http://flavors.me/LisaMichelle

Would love to know if you decide to use it! Let me know...

Cheers!

Hi Lisa,

I checked this out and your right, it is great! Speaking of resume, I also wanted to share with everyone what I recently ran into to help me with my resume. It is too good not to share. Thanks!

Questions for flavors content

Hello Lisa,
I was setting up a flavors.me account after reading this post and looking at your page. However, I am unable to create the slide out content that you have on your page. For example, when I highlight your linkedin link, a page slides over and does not redirect me to the linkedin page. Did you need to set up a paid account on flavors to create this type of layout?

Thanks!

Hi There!
No I have a free account. Although, I will be upgrading to the $20 a year account. Had a great convo with friends at Symbaloo about Flavors. You can now create a website with the paid version and they look very clean and professional.
I simply added my content and the page template I choose did the work.
Might want to try it again.
Let me know!

Still trying

Still no luck! I have tried the various layouts available and no matter which I choose, I add the content links and the flavors.me page redirects instead of opening up display area within flavors. I feel so stressed, bacause this type of "technical" work does not throw me. Grrrr.

Got it!

Nothing like watching the promotional video for the site to make the connections. I needed to add a service and not a link. Thanks!
