I always believed that the first step for creating a website was to start off with the design for your pages. I had no idea that TextEdit existed. So for me to find out that you start off with plain simple text on a blank screen was pretty surprising to me. I always imagined that web designers used fancier, advanced looking programs to create webpages. TextEdit……….. is more boring than Microsoft Word.
Just because the design of this program, that is if it’s considered a design, is boring, does not make it useless. If anything it made learning easier for me. Seeing Mr. Williams type out the information on his file, helped out the class get a better understanding. It was simple.
Practicing on my own wasn’t too bad either, I had a little fun getting to know the program. Seeing the results of my work opened up in a browser was satisfying. My work wasn’t fancy, but adding images and color was better than text on a blank page. You can’t expect to create a professional looking webpage in one day, so the outcome of my work did not disappoint.
