My first foray into actual web design was mostly exciting and somewhat frustrating at times. The experience was exciting because it’s nice to know that I’m capable of creating web pages with images and text, and the fact that we are going to start learning about CSS in a week or so is even more empowering, because I will also be able to create web pages that are at least moderately aesthetically pleasing.
Adapting to using Bluefish was a bit difficult because I’m already used to Notepad++ and, at least for now, I prefer the user interface of Notepad++ to Bluefish. The rewrap tool in particular was frustrating to use on the Bluefish program because it did not work in as straightforward a manner as it does on Notepad++.
I could see entering HTML and proofreading becoming a bit difficult or tedious at times, down the line, since there is no spell check and the text can be difficult to read. However, the entire process is still new enough right now to garner full attention and to ward off any real auto-piloting.
