I’m not exactly sure what you’re trying to do but shouldn’t you be creating pages and not blog posts.
single.php is responsible for displaying specific blog post, if you are adding portfolio page you should be using WordPress admin to create the page, then create the associated template file. So if you named your page
portfolio, template responsible for displaying this information would be
portfolio is the slug for that page.
