http://astheria.com/design/my-last-portfolio-sucked-yours-might-too

The goal of Astheria.com is to provide design articles, viewpoints, and resources that are not the same regurgitated, rewritten articles that seem to plague the design blogosphere.

This article is about common mistakes in creating a portfolio site.  I think this will be useful to my own web portfolio. So the author evaluates 200 portfolios for this research, there are screenshots to illustrate his points on some of the websites. The goals he judged each portfolio on, and that each portfolio should strive for are relatively simple: Impress the viewer within the first 10 seconds visually and allow the viewer to succeed in their goals (viewing your work or contacting you)
