I didn’t know what to expect before starting this course and I thought it would be very easy as I see many people starting their own blog or websites.
The first project seemed easy to me because I just had to follow the codes and create a basic site. I was so proud of my work that I showed my website to my friends and family but they didn’t understand what was the big deal and why I was so excited.
I enjoyed the most doing my second project as the website started to look much better. People started to see the progress and appreciate my work. I liked creating external links with different colors and I enjoyed creating the logo. I liked that I could see improvement weekly on my website. I kept spending time working on it because I enjoyed it.
My least favorite project would be the project 3, because it seems more complex than what we have done previously and mainly because we only have 3 days to complete it. I also didn’t like creating a bio with my picture on the first page of my website; I feel it is boring to see it as soon as I enter in my website.
The most important thing I have learned is to appreciate others’ work because I now know how difficult it is to create a website and the amount of time I need to spend for a basic result. I also learned how a small mistake in codes could be frustrating as sometimes – my “team” – and I would spend so much time looking at the codes to find out what was wrong and it could be such a small error like forgetting to close a div or a wrong quotation mark.
Overall, I am glad I am taking this class in summer as I can work on it everyday.
I am also excited to read today’s blog to see everyone’s work.
Let me know what you think of my website!
