Hi, guys! Welcome to the awesome feature here on The Social Potato! Here, we feature weakly”comic strips”, drawn and told by yours truly, talking about whatever stories we want to tell. Right now, I’ve decided to draw about how The Social Potato came to be, right from the very beginning! Once this “volume” finishes, we’ll try out different other stories! In any case, I really hope you like it!
Potato Strip #4: Theme Coding + Cats
If you’re a book blogger, you don’t just deal with contacting publicists, scouting upcoming titles, reading, and then reviewing… no, if you’re a blogger, it’s almost necessary to know how to code – be it HTML or CSS. Even for the widgets in your sidebar, you need to do a bit of HTML here and there! And if you really want your blog to completely represent your personality, that’s an even bigger issue – because unless you hire an expert – WTFOMFGBBQ WHAT DO THESE THINGS MEAN?!
Unfortunately, I know almost nothing about coding. I mean, I do know some HTML, the bits and pieces I learned along the way when I was obssessed over anime div layouts that were free on some sites, but going beyond that is like hell for me. I will have to consult tutorials, ask my buddies who know their shit, and spend time messing things up. I mean, could HTML and CSS possibly be so hard that you confuse cats and strings of words? In my case and in my situation – YES!
That’s why I want to learn. We had mandatory HTML classes back in High School, but we never got to learn CSS. I unfortunately can’t afford classes right now as I am saving up for a mobile dev course, so I will have to turn to online stuff. Do you know HTML/CSS? Are you self-taught? Do you have any tips pour moi? I would super appreciate it!
What about you? Do you have a blog? Did you have a hard time choosing a blog theme when you first started it? If you don’t have a blog and more of a reader, do you think that a pleasing blog theme is important for a blogger to consider?
