Building a Website…Whoa!

Hello World! (Sorry, I had to….)

For my first blog post I decided to write about something that I just finished working on; my own website.  Let’s just say I went from very basic knowledge of HTML to constructing my own fully functioning website.

Just so we are all on the same page.  When I decided I was going to make my own site the only HTML I knew were paragraph and heading tags.  Seriously.  Let’s just say the majority of the past 2.5 weeks have been filled with many hours of reading information about all the things possible with HTML and CSS.  Wait, CSS?  Yes, I had heard of this before but apparently that too is important.  Turns out, I am now in LOVE with CSS as it makes designing a website really easy.  Here is a big shout-out to W3 schools; you made my life so much easier!

I am proud to have my first blog post about an accomplishment because I am damn proud!  To all you tech and IT people reading this, don’t laugh.  This was seriously a big step for me.

While I am sure there are a few more things that I will be tweaking on my website in the near future, I have a great start.  What’s next you ask?  Well, I hear JavaScript is pretty nifty.  Can’t wait!
