For my MA application for a design course I need a digital portfolio. I have a website with a blog of a few of my BA projects, I will add more. Is this ok? I wasn't told what format would be acceptable, just told the portfolio must be in a digital format.

You need a PDF create one on indesign and then convert it to a pdf

It's too late now, I've already sent them the link for my website plus I've never used indesign before and don't have the software at home.

Then there's not much I can advise, you were asking if what you had done was ok and it's alright but it would have been better to do it using InDesign or a similar package (really if you are applying for a design course at MA you should have a basic level of skill on most Adobe packages). Alas it is done now so all you can do is wait and see.
Good luck with your application

When I told them my digital portfolio was ready and asked who to send it to they assumed it was a document and to attach it through an email but when I told them it wasn't on a document, they told me to send them the link so I am assuming they'll consider it.

Thanks, I would have used indesign but I missed the demo the tutors did on it and didn't get the chance to again because I got too busy with coursework. Plus most of my coursework was manual not digital as I didn't specialise in an area that required a lot of digital design. I hope they will accept it, all they asked for was a digital portfolio they didn't say anything in particular like a pdf file so I assumed it was my choice.
