Just coded my first site, and it turned out pretty well. I did it in an afternoon, so there is probably some kinks left to be ironed out. However, I am really happy with this result. This was definitely a fun project, and I will keep updating it over the summer.
This is all coded with simple HTML and CSS, it is very minimalist and lightweight - which I like a lot. Still really surprised I could make it look this good using just basic code without any wordpress software, it reminds me that creativity is really powerful.
