What I Hated the Least Today 44/365: Html

044 (2)

Be afraid. Very afraid. I’ve been learning html online last night. It resulted, among other things, in me having coded dreams rife with faulty syntax, unclosed tags and broken links. In one sitting, I encompassed a few markup tags and html attributes and learned to tell html from css and script. (Do I sound like I know what I’m talking about? Not to worry, I don’t.) I produced a primitive test page on which I coded a cat. Because now I can. See screenshot above for the result viewed in a browser and below for my badass cat code. I’m totally turning this into a tech blog!

    1. Haha, thank you, and yes, I’m a cat person more than a duck person, so the cat is the obvious choice. (My cat sat next to my chair and put a gun to my head when I was working on the page, so not coding the cat wasn’t an option.)

    1. Oooh, the link is awesome!! I’m not so far to be able to do this yet. I hope to learn coding to use it for my career, I realise I don’t need it for the blog. I’ve been working with a WordPress hosted site for a long time, and I was quite overwhelmed when I found how different self-hosted WordPress is – in terms of options allowed. The comments are pretty limited. I often want to share an image, for example, by simply inserting it in the comment. I can’t be bothered uploading it to my media library and creating a link to it. Just not worth the effort.


          1. Blogger intrigues me. I can’t see the point of it either and I’m curious how anyone would voluntarily choose to use that platform 😮 But I guess I’m biased.


          2. It’s old … been around ‘forever’, don’t know for how long before Google bought them. Thanks to Blogger I got early access to Gmail, when it was released as ‘invitation only’. That was the good thing 🙂 You can do all edits for free, you don’t have to pay to be able to edit CSS ‘n stuff.

            They’ve made ONE, big upgrade of that platform, and then nothing more happened.

            What irks me the most there, is that it doesn’t support threaded comments. It just gets confusing to read a post with lots of interesting comments.


          3. Blogger was launched 1999, and Google bought them 2003. My first blog … before I had any clue about the concept … was in Blogger. I wrote about some of my absolutely innermost thoughts and feelings … 100% open. Then I found it a year later and almost died from embarrassment 🙂 . Luckily I did, though so I could remove it.


          4. It’s maybe a shame that you deleted your blog! It could have made for a interesting read – I mean for you. It’s good that WordPress had the option of having a private blog. I don’t use it, but I can imagine why someone would. I have it of course easier because I blog under a pseudonym, so when I embarrass myself, well, whatever…


          5. Mara isn’t my name, but it’s pretty close. I set up the blog when I was teaching and I thought it would be quite undesirable for my students to find it. It wouldn’t be professional. Plus I wanted to be able to blog about my work without offending anyone 😉
