My First Site!!!

Hello everyone, I just finished the "How To Make A Website" & "Basic CSS" courses. As a result of that, I really wanted to start a personal project to practice what I've learned. So I built this static page in HTML and CSS from scratch in about a day.

It's still very basic and I plan to add a lot to it as I learn more, but Id love some feedback so I know how I'm doing and what I can do to improve. Thanks!

Very nice looking page, even if it wasn't your first!

I think it's a great site and not much to improve on it - better to move on to the next project. The only thing I didn't like was the hosting location. You might want to get a GitHub account and host your websites there without a lot of the extra stuff. GitHub is free and Treehouse has a course on getting started with GitHub in the Development Tools.

Thanks Karen, I think I will do that :)

Very nicely presented, with a clear structure and clean design taking the Lake Tahoe example and making it simpler and very professional :)

A great start! :)

Thank you John :)
