I did it!!!!! I created my very first webpage from scratch!!!!! My own photos and my own design with my own words using my own codes on my own domain — mine mine mine!!!!!!!!!!! I’ve been learning HTML and CSS on Codecademy.com and wanted to try out the skills I’ve learned.
I started with this design I created on Photoshop:
And by the time I finished the HTML and CSS pages, I ended up with this:
There are also highlights and drop shadows, etc. and I’m still making lots of changes.
With my very basic and limited knowledge, I ran into so many problems that I had to constantly search for online help from w3schools.com, as well as occasionally consulting my resident computer scientist (my daughter), but I finally got it done!!! I am VERY excited and proud of myself!!!!!!!!! (as you can probably tell by the number of exclamation points in this post. haha.)
It’s just my homepage so far, and it’s just a start, but I hope I can make my site complete in the very near future and share the whole thing with all of youuuus!!!!!!!
The only thing that continues to frustrate me is when I try to view it on my iPad. Making a page responsive to different screens is still way above my head, but I’ll worry about that later…
