I am not going to lie, I am not good at CSS, at all! That being said, this final project was very difficult for me and very frustrating. Having to look up how to structure every single piece of code, I would do it the best I could and it still would not work or look the way I wanted. With four other finals to study for and presentations to prepare for, this project added even more stress with the frustration of just trying to get a project together to turn in. After about 12 days of working on creating my portfolio I still did not have a quality piece to turn in. I began to worry and knew I needed to get something together and working to turn in. While searching on Google for help on writing code, I kept running across a website that said it could assist you in building your own site for free. Out of desperation I went to the site and gave it a shot. What a life saver that was! Weebly.com allowed me to pick a theme and basically click and drag to add information and made adding more pages and linking a breeze.

Like I stated in my design process, to customize my page I went into the edit html/css and changed the alignment of the homepage header and the background color. The first page you come to on my site is the homepage welcoming you to the site with a picture of Lambeau Field and the name of my site. I then added tabs along the top of the page to go to my portfolio, blog, and an essay I had written for class. From the portfolio page I showed an image and the title of four different pieces of work I did for class with a link to go to see a larger image and read more about the image. When clicking to read more about one of these images I added information to all of them (except the chess image) putting a larger image in the left corner and text starting next to the image, wrapping under the image as the information continues. Next, the blog tab I have a short blurb telling you to click here to open a new page to see my blog (linking to the domain I purchased for class, corbscorner.com). Finally, I didn’t know where to stick this, but I added a tab to read an essay I wrote entitled Toughness of Football.

Throughout the design of the site, I kept the background the same, with my site name and image on every tab. I feel that my site is easy to navigate through and reflects a central image of “sports and games” throughout.
