~My Adventures in HTML~
HTML With WebTech University
When first coming on-line, I ventured into Newfie Chat sites. It was
there that I met a good friend that rekindled my first love and it was
then, my learning of the software Paint Shop Pro began.
Soon I found myself diving into learning bits and pieces of HTML. I made
chat sites with SMF for free and then met up with another good on-line
friend who introduced me to even more; using FTP and dealing with
websites directly on a server.
With his help, my designing web pages evolved into designing my own
site "melsgraphics.com", and "newfoundwebbers.com". With his
encouragement and nudges, my learning grew, but my inability to fully
understand html and css was always an obstacle, it was like pieces of a
puzzle that was missing to me. It was then I signed up for on-line lessons
with Webtech University, to fill in those blanks I was missing.
My First Love
Ahhh my first love. Upon graduating high school, I had applied for a
Commercial Graphics course at the local vocational school. Being
declined, I went to Bible College for a year then got into the
Foodservice Industry as a cook/baker. Although not entering the
Commercial Graphics field, I did practice my "art" in many avenues
be it in cooking or anything, my artistic abilities seemed to show.
I'm a "Jack of all Trades, and Master of None" I guess, as the saying
goes. Be it whatever I seem to try, I usually have good success in the
I use to look back and wonder "what if" I had been accepted
into that course but I wouldn't have experienced the things I have
done and people I've met along the way. There are no regrets. Life is
an adventure to live, learn and enjoy, wherever the road takes me.
So here I am at a new adventure, a crossroad . Being in the Foodservice
Industry for over 30 years, one wonders if it's where one wants to be 10
years from now.
The food industry is a hard one,
one that with the changing times has
brought on it's own challenges.
