Never to old to learn something new
Trying to learn HTML to help with this blog and hopefully be able to understand it to help teach it to my kids. I found a great blog that teaches it. http://learnhtmlwithsong.com/blog/category/learn-html-level-1/ No, she isn’t paying me to post this. I found her blog and I am hoping, it will help.
The key things I got from lesson one:
- HTML is Hyper Text Markup Language and should be thought of as the main structure in a building. It is the primary building block, defines structure, and contains content.
- CSS should be thought of as the paint and finishing products. It is the design and formatting.
- The HTML tags mark hierarchy of information.
- Hyper text refers to hyperlinking links – link where you click and get redirected.
Now, keeping in mind this is my first lesson, forgive me if I mess it up. I have zero knowledge heading into this. Wish me luck, I have a feeling I might need some.
If I am understanding this right, Synax is the language of HTML. The markers that help identify and contain everything. Such as:
- Plain paragraph <p>
- Important heading <h1>
- Head <head>
- Body <body>
Maybe, if I am understanding this all right, I think I know how to add a meta value. To verify my blog with the search sites, I need to be able to access and add a Meta code. My steps:
First, word press to themes.
Second, themes to editor,
Third, editor to header.php.
Now, to add the meta value to my website header file. Once open, I need to add my meta code under <head> tag.
Let’s do this
Finally, click to update file. I am so nervous. I have spent days trying to make this update to get my blog out there for everyone to read. Having watched my efforts fail for a week is what led me to learn HTML. Being a stubborn personality means I do not let failure stop me. Most of all, I am single-minded until I can get it done. So again I ask, please, wish me luck.
