making own portfolio
I did a night school course in web graphics and development based around Dreamweaver/Fireworks suite, which was largely a waste of time as I was taught to build sites with HTML4 instead of HTML5, tables instead of divs, static instead of reactive. So I've had to re-learn everything, by building a few sites of my own.
P.S. I do NOT use, or recommend, Dreamweaver because I found myself just using code view anyway and, for me, it was as complex as building sites in raw html/css/php. So what was the point learning to do it via DW???
If you already know html5, it is not much difficult for you to learn html4. So getting trained will always helps.

"Portfolio" of what? Fabric designs? Digital images? Photographs?
There are so many examples out there. View>Source Code to see how they are done.
If you have a "bunch of stuff," you might do well to break it down into different categories. That way, yo can plan links to different pages/sections. Thinking through the concept of a Web site is toughest part. Consider who your audience will be.
Dreamweaver is a very helpful editing tool. Yes, work in code side of SPLIT view. I use it in school lab so cost is not a factor for me.
Post your code or link to site if it is online.
I think portfolio of what he offers services and if you are offering services in web designing then you must do it.
