Have you ever designed with CSS & HTML before? If you are like most people the answer is no. You may be scared to give it a try but it’s really not that hard. I am here to tell you that coding with HTML is fun and easy. I want you to take on your fear of code and win!
I am going to start this series by talking about HTML in its basic form. In talking about this I want you to understand that it’s ok to make a mistake when you use code. Its not going to break your site, if you make a mistake, it’s ok, you can fix it. So relax and just have fun!
Using Trial and Error
We are going to use trial and error when learning the code. I want to let you know that I am totally self taught, I have made a lot of mistakes along the way, but I have learned how to correct them by using trial and error. And also, by spending countless hours hanging out with Google.
Google has really become a best friend to me as I have learned a lot from just researching on Google for answers. I have tested different things, I have went back and changed things and tested it again and again until I got the outcome that I wanted.
Changing Existing Code To Build Our Design
So what we are going to be doing here, is that, we are not going to be building full websites. This is not a full course on HTML. We are not going to be starting a website from scratch. We are going to take an existing platform, like Blogger, or WordPress, and change the existing HTML code to suit our design needs.
Our goal is to learn the basics of HTML so that we can recognize it when we see it, and know what to do with it to make it our own. Bend it to our will, so to speak, and make our design unique and awesome, just like us!
This article is part one in the series. The next article, Learning HTML Code Part 2-Writing HTML Tags, will go into how to use the proper format when writing HTML tags.
