Overall Satisfaction with Contently

I use Contently for the purpose of showcasing my online portfolio as a freelance writer. It was an easy and efficient method for me to post my articles with pictures in one place. This way when I apply for jobs I can have the direct link to every article I've written, rather than listing each article individually. It also made it easier than building a portfolio for myself from scratch and having to manage that page; Contently made it easy for me to upload new articles and keep a clean interface. It addressed my problem of having to copy each individual link into each new job application. It keeps all of my writing in one place!
  • Allows for an easy upload. Each time I write something new, I can go to my Contently page, copy and paste the link and be done. It grabs a picture from the website or I can add my own.
  • Creating the page. The layout was simple and easy to understand, I was able to have my portfolio up and running within the hour. I am never confused and can navigate the page well.
  • Navigating to the page. My domain is easy to remember and not a mouthful. I can add it to resumes, applications and other places and feel like the address is clean and not complicated.
  • There are only two layouts you can choose from. I wish there were a few more choices for this, as the options are simple, but lacking.
  • Sometimes when I paste a link, it doesn't pull the correct picture or description from the page. It has pulled weird things I've never seen before and I have to go back in and manually fix them.
  • The option to purchase a domain without the .contently at the end?
  • Increased professionalism
  • Higher payouts from jobs
  • Better efficiency in keeping everything updated
Contently is well suited for my line of work, as I need to showcase my portfolio and all of my writing. This made it easy and so I would recommend it to all of my writing friends trying to find a clean and refreshing way to show the world what they've written without having to build a website from scratch for themselves.
