Hey Corey you dont need the div thats under your header. This is group the nav links sepratley. The header tag alone is grouping all the elements

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

<h2>Welcome</h2> <p></p> <ul> <li><a href="#">Recent project #1</a></li> <li><a href="#">Recent project #2</a></li> <li><a href="#">Recent project #3</a></li>
</ul>

These two blocks of code get put into one big content section oppose to the two separate divs that you have created for them. It also wants you to use a section tag not a div. So it will look something like this:

<section> content block 1

content block 2 </section>

I hope this made sense and was useful for you

<!DOCTYPE html>

  <head>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">
    <title>My Portfolio</title>

      <p></p>
      <nav>
    <ul></ul>
      </nav>

   <section>
    <ul>
      <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Work</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>            
    </ul>
    <h1>My Web Design &amp; Development Portfolio!</h1> 
    <p>A site featuring my latest work.</p>

    <h2>Welcome</h2> 
    <p>Fusce semper id ipsum sed scelerisque. Etiam nec elementum massa. Pellentesque tristique ex ac ipsum hendrerit, eget feugiat ante faucibus.</p>
