A small mistake, You have href attribute correct but where is the text you want as an anchor??

<a href="url">Text/Img/etc etc(your Link)</a>
<li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li>
<li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
<li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li>

Move the

</a>

to the right of the words Portfolio, About and Contact, such that

<a href="about.html">About</a>

, for instance.

<ul> 
   <li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li>
   <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
   <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li>
</ul>

I hope this helps. :) Good luck!
