Today KP gave me a tutorial on Web design/html code/Dreamweaver…When I got home it was a bazillion degrees and even hotter in my non-air conditioned house. So I made an enormous glass of decaf iced coffee, went to the back yard, stole some neighbors internet since mine is down and started to work.
I had to keep telling myself, “my 12 year old niece can do this, so can I!”
I’ve been getting little tidbits here and there on how to build a website for a couple of weeks, but when I say I know nothing, I mean I DON’T KNOW NOTHING!
So after I learned what a server was (please don’t ask me to prove my knowledge =/ … ) I had to learn what “Coding” was. Look at examples on other websites. And was even pop quizzed!
I was sent home with an assignment to make a “Products” page. (Yes, KP gave me homework.) And although I was taught about “Hyperlinks” today I realized when I sat down at my laptop an hour after my webpage session that I’d forgotten 90% of what I’d learned and had to make a quick phone call to ask
“Ummmm…So how do you start working on a new page?”
“OH! Got it. =)”
The only thing that ended up on the page were 12 pictures WITH titles =). But this was after I deleted my page 2 times on accident, 1 time on purpose and a whole column of pictures when I clicked a random button, then my eyes started to burn. And here I am 8:45pm and ready for bed! But at least it was cool outside!
Am I the only one who feels like a technological fool? Or have you ever felt like this too?
