It was the summer of 2002 and I had my first job working in a computer access centre.
It was basically my high school’s computer lab but, every summer, they opened it to the public.
No one came.
Which worked out dandy for me, because my co-worker spent the summer teaching me about HTML and CSS and a smattering of PHP.
Up until that point, I knew how to make a website through Geocities and Tripod – and it was just as horrible as you’re picturing it in your mind right now.
But the knowledge he imparted on me opened doors to the world of web design and I haven’t stopped since.
Somewhere along the line, people started paying me to write their stuff and suddenly I found myself immersed in the world of freelance writing.
And I thought, “Hey! Why not teach people these skills so they can create their own blogs?”
They say in the world of blogging, write what you are passionate about – and I am passionate about all this crap.
Coding, design and writing are my happy places. I can lose all track of time when I’m working on my blogs.
I hope here at MNC you will find the answers to your questions and some inspiration to make your blog or site really totally cool.
What I do:
Apart from drinking a lot of coffee, I love to design and build websites.
I am by no means an expert when it comes to coding a website and I always felt that my knowledge was moot because I was unable to make fancy tech-laden layouts.
But I can code a website from scratch – and I’ve learned a few things along the way.
As I started connected with other mom bloggers, I noticed that they struggled to edit and place code on their web sites as well as write readable and informative content.
