Welcome to Class:
My first site was a class assignment. I just realized today (about eight years later) that if I'd learned html by myself, I might never have gone through the horrible different-background-on-every-page stage because she made us do it that way. Wow.
The best things I did on my own: I had nekos on every page for continuity. I put dates on things and had an update page. I provided an email address and Top of Page links, gave credit to the people I got graphics from, and picked graphics and text that were fairly reader-friendly. All are things I encourage others to do.
Well, it doesn't have to be nekos but continuity is important.
The site had:
And yet what to do with all this free time while my classmates struggled with ordered lists, bold tags, and picking graphics so hideous that all and sundry would be spared the even greater agony of having to read whatever they wrote?
I made a couple of dorky pages that were linked to by random graphics and a set of color charts because I wanted them. Unfortunately I did not know the difference between websafe and named colors, nor did I realize that different color quality settings would change how the colors appeared. It took several years to sort them out proper-like and they're rather obsolete now.
With class over, I moved to geocities. My "first attempt" was then deleted off the school server by accident. Thank goodness. One less thing to haunt me for ever...
The text was placed in a table for your eyeball-ing ease. Originally, it all ran free like rabid jackelopes and there was no white background behind the text.
