One thing I would recommend, is start your portfolio with your own personal GMail account so you own it. It becomes complicated if you start it with a school account and leave - sometimes moving it to your own account is not as easy as it sounds. It also means that you have control over who sees your blog. You have to specifically share your blog with your appraiser and colleagues you feel should see it. Mine is private and can not come up in Google searches. I give the link to the people I want to have it.

One minute he is freaking out parents in the audience with how they have damaged their little darlings and the next he is speaking about the other things they are doing that counter balance said damage and make them ok.
Below is my Storify of the event with notes put in to speak to the Tweets produced from the keynote and the workshops throughout the day.
Over morning tea, lunch and the chill out session at the end of the day it was lovely to catch up with teachers I have met at other conferences (ULearn, educamps, eduignites, #edchatNZ conference, ConnectED) and through Twitter, NZEI, relieving and from schools I have worked in. I also met some new people and learned about some new recreational activities from other people.
That networking is so positive and uplifting and allows one to share the learning of the day and how you will carry it forward with you in future days.
And then it was time to go home to feed out the haylage to the cows and feed a shed full of cats.... and a new calf! This is Little Bub with his mum, Petal.
