Not sure if Im missing anything

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <header>
      <a href="index.html">

        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
        <h2>Designer</h2>
       <nav>
         <ul>

Hi there! You're doing great, but I feel like you may have misunderstood part of the instructions. The instructions ask you to make the <nav> element after the link inside the header. Remember, we make links with the anchor tag or <a>. So your nav element shouldn't come until after the closing </a>. On a side note, the challenge also explicitly asks that you not add any list items for Step 1.

Hope this helps, but let me know if you're still stuck! :sparkles:

So now it's saying Bummer! The Portfolio list item should link to "index.html". Not entirely sure what i Did wrong.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <header>
      <a href="index.html"></a>
        <nav>
          <ul>
            <li><a href="index.html"></a>Portfolio</li>
            <li><a href="about.html"></a>About</li>
            <li><a href="contact.html"></a>Contact</li>
          </ul>
        </nav>  
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
        <h2>Designer</h2>


    </header>
    <section></section>
    <footer>
      <p>&copy; 2013 Nick Pettit.</p>
    </footer>
  </body>
</html>

Hi again! This is along the same lines as the problem before. The link ends with the </a>tag. Take a good look at your code. Portfolio comes after the link has already ended. Try moving the placement of the </a> tag. This is also true for your other links :smiley:
