My CAT274 Journey

Just another weblog

Week 2

Week 2 is tuff.  Seems like a lot of work for a small period of time.  I can do this!!  At least that is what I keep telling myself. 

After reading and watching the videos, I have a better understanding of file structure within Dreamweaver, the difference between absolute and relative links, defining local and remote files.  I will have more to report once I complete the “hands on approach” of my assignments for this week.

I made through the end of week 2!!  Actually, I am starting to get a handle on having 3 classes.  The most interesting element that I have found about web design is, there is a global standard for structuring web pages.  You wouldn’t know it by some of the websites I have recently seen.

Week 1

Welcome to my blog. 

This  blog is dedicated to the diary of my journey through CAT274 Web Design.  This is my first web design class.

This first week was hard for me because this is the first time I have ever taken 3 classes at the same time.  I will get it all together once I establish an organized pattern for myself. 

I finally understand “Tags”!  I really enjoyed viewing the videos on  The info was very clear and concise.  The greatest lesson from week 1 was learning proper ground rules like setting your files up correctly the first time and proper naming conventions. 

Some great referal sites and software are:   which tracks the best web hosting services
