Fixing This Simple Mistake Made My Code Come Alive

I am writing my first webpage with real content that I created, not something pre=made with instructions. I made this decision because I reached the 3rd part of my frontend certification at freeCodeCamp.org, but I don't want to start it until I finish braiding the back of my hair. This weekend's big project.

It has been my habit to code every day and this was my way of fulfilling that ritual.

I just dove in and started writing code on my text editor, piecing shit together. I referenced a ton of shit, and my page is taking shape with a bit of persistence.

I have to give a huge shoutout to Mr. Wolferinc. I used his dope ass code for my graph paper background.

I am making a webpage about some math I've been studying, hence the graph paper. The layout is very simple. Its some definitions of simple math concepts, with visual examples.

The most exciting part of the process thus far was watching my text editor change from all white to the colors that identify the code's rule usage. Because I am using the editor that is standard with my computer, I assumed the text was just as it was displaying itself, white.

It turns out I didn't save the document correctly. I needed to save it as an HTML file(I just happened to run across that info as I was searching for other bits of code). When I changed the file name, the entire code came to life. It was marvelous, I wish I could have seen the look on my face.

It was an incredible moment. This is as far as got, I should finish this afternoon:

With these words, I bid you

Good night
