Hi Niels,

The challenge is asking for you to "write the words to your site".

That's their way of telling you they want you to use the document.write ability in JavaScript

Try this code:

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
</head>

<body>
</body>

<script>
// Write your code here.
document.write('Welcome to my site');
</script>

</html>

DUDE YOUR AWESOME, this just doesn't come natural to me YET thanks man

Just keep practicing and asking questions and you'll get better with every line of code you write. Glad this helped.
