Help with <section> </section> please...... why is this wrong?

I am being asked to place content into standalone sections of content. But it keeps coming up as wrong. Help!

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">
    <title>My Portfolio</title>
      <h1>My Portfolio</h1>
      <p>Please read to learn about me</p>   
      <li>Web developer</li>

      <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Work</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>            

      <h1>My Web Design &amp; Development Portfolio!</h1> 
      <p>A site featuring my latest work.</p>

      <p>Fusce semper id ipsum sed scelerisque. Etiam nec elementum massa. Pellentesque tristique ex ac ipsum hendrerit, eget feugiat ante faucibus.</p>
        <li><a href="#">Recent project #1</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Recent project #2</a></li>

Hi Emily Grant

You are on the right track and have isolated the correct lines with the correct tag. However, you only need one set of <section> tags for the task. If you remove the extra two sets of <section> tags the task will pass. The key phase in the instructions state "inside an element" (Singular). So, your opening tag right after the <body> tag is correct and the closing tag right before the <footer> tag is correct... just delete the ones between.

Nice work!
