Homemade Websites: Building from SCRATCH

This week for my HTML class, I built a website from scratch—-I’m not sure if it’s equivalent to homemade cookies, but at least I could understand all of the ingredients when I clicked on VIEW SOURCE.  Homemade CookiesSometimes you can click on a website that was made in a website factory and you have no clue where those “ingredients” came from or what they will do when you go to “taste” the final product.  So this week I know what I built and MAYBE I could even do it again if I had to!  🙂

While reading my monthly newsletter from my friend Peg Tileston, of “WHAT’S UP” fame,

Citizen's Climate Lobby

I noticed that Fairbanks was starting a “Citizen’s Climate Lobby” group.  I quickly did a search to see if Anchorage had one.  Sure enough, we do.  In fact, I remembered that a year ago my husband and I made a conscious decision not to attend since they met on Saturdays. But it was hard to find any thing about their group on the interwebs.  I contacted George Donart, who I think I met at the Farmer’s Market this summer.  He indeed had some information, but admitted that they have no web site, but have plans to put up a facebook page.  I decided that might be a great service for them.

I still haven’t heard back from George or the folks in Fairbanks who just had their first meeting, but I decided to go forward with the web site and do this week’s assignment.

P.S.  It’s so frustrating that WordPress magically text wraps for me.  It doesn’t tell me the code when I click on TEXT either.  Secrets!  Bah Humbug.
