h1 color not changing

The h1 color (blue) in my css file is not working even there are no typos. Code from my resume.html: <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Micah Angelica's Baguio Resume</title> <link rel="stylesheet" href="http/resume.css"> </head> <body> <img src="images/me.jpg" alt="Micah Baguio, Newbie Coder"> <h1>Micah Baguio, Newbie Coder</h1> <h2>Summary of Qualifications</h2> <ul> <li>Digital Literacy</li> <li>Treehouse HTML and CSS</li> <li>Bachelor of Elementary Education, Science</li> </ul> </body> </html>

Resume.css: h1 { color: blue; }

I keep reviewing what seems to be the problem but couldn't find anything. I was following what was in the video, saved it and no changes of color.

Hi Micah, I've posted exactly the same problem, you must be working your way through the beginners guide for HTML and CSS. Probably like you I have checked, checked and re-checked, followed the video instructor's instructions to the letter and for the life of me I cannot find out where I'm going wrong. Hopefully someone on the community forum will have the right answer :)

Hi Micah Angelica Baguio! Looking at the code you have there and the problem you are experiencing sounds like an issue linking your HTML file with your CSS. Can you share a snapshot of your workspace so that I can check out your files? :)

Also, a trick for pasting code into the forum would be to wrap your code in 3 backticks (`).

Then your code will show up
exactly as you have it typed :)
