When I was in grade 9, I created my very first online publication. No, this wasn’t a lifestyle blog or a YouTube channel. In my opinion it was way better. I created a Tumblr. My Tumblr URL was my secret identity. I didn’t allow anyone that I knew the luxury of following me, but consented to 188 strangers keeping tabs on me as they please. It was my very first introduction to coding and I loved it. I would lookup different codes to make it snow on my account during the winter season, and would play around with different cursor styles. I had a specific Spotify playlist linked to my account and managed to mess around with the layout enough to make it exactly how I envisioned it. It was my baby and I loved it dearly. Therefore when I found out that we were going to be making a website in PUB 201, I was ecstatic.
11 hours later, I have no tears left to shed. I have never struggled so much with a website in my life. I feel as though I have never seen and/or touched code in my life. What is meta? How do I change my header without also changing my font? Why can’t I drag and drop? Why can’t I figure out how to change the positioning of my widgets? What even is a widget!
I’ve had enough WordPress for today. I’ll check in tomorrow.
