Learning da HTML

Ok, so. In my Online class, we’ve been learning the basics of HTML, and even though it’s the basics, I still get confused. I consider myself techno-savvy to a certain extent but not to the extent of knowing much more than anybody else. Haha. As I write this in WordPress, I switched from Visual to HTML and wrote in the code for everything. WordPress makes it easy for you and does everything. All you have to do is click a button. But I decided not to do it so easily and to make myself learn HTML. Hopefully this works. I will bold the following word —> BOLD! Hehe. Simple eh? Not if you didn’t know the code word (it’s “strong”). I went to this site: http://www.w3schools.com/ which is really helpful and has some great tutorials. Really practical. Ooooh added Italics…or “em.” Of course, why would you do this if WordPress does it all for you? I’d like to think it’s because you want to actually get down to the basics of how it’s done. Adding that wonderful picture of me above was mega hard. I tested it about a hundred times before I got it right. I compared another post that I had automatically added a photo and tried to do the same but with a different photo. The thing about HTML is that if you get ONE THING wrong, it looks like this –>

<img class="alignnone size-medium wp-image-201" title="SL" src="https://leavittjschool.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/yearbookyourself_sl_1986

Ok, another lesson learned. WordPress gets it if you make a little mistake and fixes it, damn you! So I had to mess the HTML for the picture quite a bit for you to see it as code. But as you can see, the picture is left-justified. Too amateur to center it, believe me, I tried. I like writing my post under HTML, makes me feel smart. Now to work on a whole webpage…sigh.
