This might just be for me and my field personally, but I just redirected my old site to my new one, and called it a day. If someone googles me, they’ll find my old site, and if they click it, they’ll be directed to the one with my married name. I’m not concerned about ‘old’ stuff really because.. I’ll have the whole rest of my career to be known as Married Name. I wouldn’t hold on to my maiden name just because of a few years of work. Again, if someone happens to look me up, they’ll still find me.

I think the “Should I create a new portfolio under my new name and link the old one to it?” option is the one I would go with, personally.

How common is each name combination? I’m keeping my last name professionally party because my last name is more unique than my guy’s, and there’s already another “B. Smith” (for example) in my field.
