Sometimes the smallest achievement can make a day good…

(Uh, I love Snickers… and I don’t really want to say how many bars I’ve had over the past 2 weeks!)

Back to the lovely html… I have said this before and I will say it again- I wish I would have picked up all this coding stuff a long time ago. I know, I know, Just because I have an inkling about html and css and just a tiny tad of JavaScript it doesn’t mean I am anywhere near to being fluent in “languages” but I still feel so great when I don’t give up and find the little piece of character that is messing up the code which is messing up the look on the website.

Not 5 minutes ago I was wrestling with code in Joomla and darn it, I was so ready to give up. I just couldn’t see what I was doing wrong. Then I reminded myself that normally it’s a tiny little symbol or character that is out of place, or missing, and even though I had looked at the code for 20 minutes I just couldn’t find it. I started to see stars in my eyes as I had stared at the <‘s and ;’s and href’s and =’s for so long… And then I did… The lack of ” in one place had messed it all up for me!

Moral of the story: if you don’t succeed and are ready to give up- don’t! The solution might be just there, ready to present itself!

And, oh… Learn to code! It’s fun! πŸ™‚
