Hello, Everyone! I'm an artist living in Reno, NV and I'm using this project to develop a website to showcase my art and community projects. I originally had much of this content in a wordpress blog, but I've always know that some day I'd be creating my own website. It's been a long time coming!
I'm very open to suggestions on how to improve the look of the site and make it as user-friendly as possible. One major issue that I have with wordpress and other sites is the advertising. If ads are going to be popping up next to my content, I might as well actually support the product or company being advertised, right? Well, you might see that even on the site as it appears now, some program has attached links to advertise different things. Who is Deal Vault? And how did they link to words in my site? I hope that by the end of this class I'll be able to have more control over these types of things and share a site that reflects not only my art and projects, but also shows ads for companies or groups that I actually support.
Coming into this class, I knew nothing to very little about html, css and beyond. I look forward to learning this material and seeing all of our projects evolve!
