The Birth of a New Blog

This is the first time I’ve ever written a blog, and to tell the truth, I’m a bit uncertain about the whole process. So, now that I’ve selected a domain name for my site, a blog host, and a theme… now what?

Well, I guess I can write about the daunting process of starting a web page. I mean, I have absolutely no web experience whatsoever! When I was finally ready to replace my “UNDER CONSTRUCTION” message with an actual welcome message for my blog, I thought, “Okay, where do I go to type my text? Ah! There it is!” Then, I started typing and everything looked great! That is until I clicked on the PREVIEW button! Oh, no!!! What the heck did I do? My fonts were all different sizes, spacing was all jacked up, and at that point I realized it was time to learn a new language.

Now, I know basic (and I mean very basic) HTML, but that wasn’t going to help me here. So, what was I going to do? Google it of course!

I didn’t like the default font sizes, so I needed to learn how to change that. It turns out that the HTML code for setting font sizes wasn’t too difficult. So, now that I’ve figured out the font size, my next task was trying to figure out how to change the actual font. Until then… this font is going to have to do!

So, now that I’ve got all that out of the way, I hope to be able to fill this site with interesting and more organized blog posts in the near future.
