Where Did All of This Begin
You may have checked out the site archive and wondered if version 1.00 was actually the first version of this website. Well, yes and no. There were changes made before version 1 but I do not have any record of them and there was also 0 content in the website at that time. Pre version 1 the site was basically just a simple layout usiing CSS grid. and basic HTML and CSS
Version 1.00 was born when I started getting more and more into learing about coding. I had started a free trial at Linkedin Learning and I was egar to test out some of my newly aquired coding skills. The first thing I did was to update the grid layout to be like the one that you can see in version 1.00 today. I also designed a logo and uploaded my first background-image and some artwork. I began messing about with links and menus, and next thing I knew my page was turning into a website. This was when I decided that I wanted to record everthing from that point on so I could keep a record off how far I've come, and wow. I've come a long way in a short time.
Version 1.11 was created from version 1.00 in about a day or two. The absolute most important thing that I did to speed up the creation of new pages was to condense my several page specific CSS files into a Main.CSS. This allowed me to copy and paste my HTML template and automatically have it look the same on any page. After creating the Main.CSS I started editing it in an atempt to make my site look less garbage. It kinda worked... I also started adding content and making plans for what I wanted to do next.I had also watched a couple videos on CSS animation and wanted to add a couple to my site to test it out.
Make a main.css to start with. Don't be an idiot like me and waste your time typing the same thing in 5 different files. Also, I am in now way paid by Linkedin but I would highly recomend their videos for anyone thats trying to learn to code. I will probably be making a blog post shortly about version 2 after the version I'm working on right now is uploaded to the archive.
