my portfolio is linked to "index.html" but I still get a bummer

I have linked my Portfolio page to "index.html" but I still get a bummer. Cannot seem to find the problem

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
          <li><a href="index.html"></a>Portfolio</li>
          <li><a href="about.html"></a>About</li>
          <li><a href="cotact.html"></a>Contact</li>

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

The problem is your link text was not between the <a></a> tags. So the text was not linking to anything.

You need to move the link closing tags </a> behind the words itself.

And you have a typo: cotact.html should be contact.html.

Good luck!

Problem noted thanks guys
