The Body Tag

It takes a hot minute to set up your HTML code with everything that goes on behind the scenes to make your webpage actually work. So if you’ve gotten to the point of creating the actual body of your webpage –

GIVE YOURSELF A PAT ON THE BACK

because honestly, this shiz isn’t easy!

And if you’re not quite there yet, hunny, I gotchu.

The stuff you’ve already written in code editor probably looks like this!

Ready.

To.

Go.

The Body Tag  

The Body of your webpage is indicated by opening and closing <body> tags – and it’s where all the fun happens. It’s where you finally get to create sections of your webpage that are filled with images, videos, text, colors, your hopes and dreams and anything else you’d like to see on your page.

Now, this tag may not look like much, but there will be a time when there is more space between the body tags than there is space between seasons of Game of Thrones.

HURRY UP, HBO!

I digress.

Once I’ve written out my Body Tag, I personally like to then create divisions or <divs> within the Body Tag, so I can start to see how many sections there will be on my webpage. <Divs> go within the Body Tag – but we will save those details for later!

Hot Tip: I like to sketch out what my webpage will look like in my notebook, so I can count out how many sections I want on my webpage!
