This website is the testing ground for what we learn.

Some of these points tackled from last semester to this semester are:

  • ● Hover link color changes
  • ● Float lefts
  • ● Float rights
  • ● Enlarged images on hover
  • ● Article headlines with images and text both linking to the article of interest
  • ● Cites for articles, photos and images
  • ● Appropriate fonts, colors and articles
  • ● Best practice for HTML5 and CSS3 as we learn
  • ● Responsive or Fluid Design

As to content for this blog, for me, I usually start the week with a blank slate. “I cannot think of a thing to post or find”, but there is always something new, and always something someone has figured out a better way to build and for us to find and to report.

More than often real life articles found in daily news pieces are better than anything we could make up. Therefore, I will attempt to make this blog factual and fun to read with always an eye on the bizarre yet true Internet news.

I hope to make presentation, structure, content, interest and good spelling my priorities.
