I've got a web page that I used to have in my signature line here, I'm so (inordinately) proud of it!
I'd had an earlier page that I'd done using some kind of html builder, so I used that to start out. But it was a stupid thing, because every few words, it put in the font and font size and stuff like that. So I looked at the html and just started copying what the html builder did, only with less wasted thingies. I've got some pictures of flowers on there, that was fun to do. I found a website with creative cursor effects, and I had flowers following the cursor around on the main page for a while. It annoyed too many people, so I got rid of it (after I'd gotten over how much time and hard work it was to make the flowers in the first place!)
It's fun, isn't it? I'm learning some stuff that would make for a more interesting web page, if I can think of some way to NOT use it in a way that's more anoying than interesting. Not my strong point, if you've seen my page, you already know that!
I didn't put a counter on my page, and I didn't put any music on it. I had that on my first page, but didn't carry on with it. My first web page was funny. I thought random thoughts coming my way might help me out of the deep dark forest I was in back then. So I had a web page asking for advice. I thought if I didn't state what KIND of advice I was asking for, I might get the odd gem of wisdom. Nope. But it was a good try, I think.
But I made both my pages all by myself. Despite the fact that I have a kid who was at the time I started the first page 13 and already knew how to write HTML, Java and PERL but did NOT help her old mum at ALL. I would gladly have accepted her help, in fact I asked for it, but she was much too busy.
PS - Waaaaaah - my dancing spiderman on my page disappeared! Doggon it, there goes my weekend - I just know I'll waste the entire time trying to get it going again!
