This post isn’t actually about health, it’s just what I chose for my Web Type Assignment. We had to pick an article and decide the hierarchy of the page, lay it out in a way that is appealing by choosing colors, type, and positioning. Yay! I love type!
Yep, that is what it felt like was happening at the time! You are racing against time! DON’T DIE! Wait, what? No, no one dying here… just writing some code. I wasn’t actually thaaaaaaat into it, but what really happened, we had an in class assignment to make a one page website. HEY! The adrenaline was pumping… I was on a mission. Make the website work in desktop view and make it mobile friendly? Bring. It. On.
Let’s create a 5 page website in 4 days! Wait, WHAT? Okay!?!?!??! Here’s me crying inside, panicking that I won’t be able to do it. (Jeez relax eh?) So right away I scream to myself “GET STARTED NOW!” We had the option of creating any website we wanted, whether it be a friends or a family member in need of an updated website or to have their first one, you could redo another website or even just create a fake company and start right from scratch.

Before we get into what those are, how do we save these files in Photoshop? There are TWO WAYS, I know, so many choices. You can either export it or you can save for web. Both are great options, but when you export your file it tends to save out as a bigger file size, ew. So, let’s stick with save for web.
WOO! HTML or if you really want, XHTML, but actually.. really, HTML5. Most people look at code and say “Nope, not even going to try reading that, it makes no sense”. Yep, you’re right, totally doesn’t, but if you take the time to learn, it’s kind of like this massive explosion of understanding going on in your head (for about a second). After you get over your excitement that you actually understood something, you have to move on to the next line of code. It doesn’t even end with just HTML5, that’s just the beginning, because there are so many programming languages, for example:
