I make mistakes all the time and I've been a developer for about 10 years now. Creating tests and getting people to check your work (QA) is fairly standard practice to help spot mistakes. Good luck with your coding! :)

Robert, I'm finding that to be so true.....more and more. Once I got over my fears I began searching online myself. Now coding is more like life in a science lab.... test the code and if it doesn't work keep going until it does

Remember — mistakes are the best teachers!

It looks like you are missing the starting "<footer>" tag to go with the end tag already added.

Plus it seems you have a stray extra closing "</section>" tag just before the ending "</footer>" tag.
