Finally… I ended the online web design class on a great note: 100% on my final. That is because the teacher was grading to a rubric and not on creativity. What a relief! I did not have time to mess with creativity and doing it on notepad takes some extra work. I am told the ground class is allowed to use Dreamweaver and are able to spend more time on the creative aspects, but 5.5 weeks with a full class load does not allow for that.
The teacher told me she hoped I would continue with web design. 🙂 A great thing to hear when that is your major! I fell in love with the whole idea of .css (style sheets) and clean code. It fits perfectly with my technical writing training and my love for crisp business communications. (I know…I know…I am not so crisp with personal communication, as this blog illustrates! I do assure you that my business writing is very crisp – years working on government regulated documentation will do that to you!)
I would call this a “thumbnail” version of my eventual website for Squangles, meaning it is a very, very roughed out idea. Squangles is the business Charlotte and I are working on together. It is in its beginning stages and we have big ideas, but I need to get through the next year or two of college. I have much bigger plans for this site once I understand how to work tables, etc. Here are a couple of pages:
