Hi Chuck. Yes best thing to have really is a website, and you don't need to worry about building it as there are many sites that give you templates to help build it and display your work. Behance recently launched their own portfolio builder called ProSite. Might be worth giving that a go.

As for a blog, it's not a complete necessity to have one but it just give people more of an understanding of who you are, especially if you give something back to the community by not just showing your work, but by explaining how you achieved that piece of work. Try something like Wordpress or Blog Spot, these are both great sites which like ProSite, give you templates to help you build your own blog, and they are free!

I think most of us have a fairly broad online presence. I don't have a website at the moment, but blog, tweet, carbonmade.....it all helps.

The Behance Pro site looks great. Has anyone used it yet? Does anyone know if there is a shopping feature on it to sell work through?

I use carbonmade, tempted to try out twitter, and I really should renovate and start using that old blog of mine.

The other alternative is all of them combined in a magical websitey thing (technical term)! It's a platform I'm working on, but I am sadly unable to take on work at the moment!
