Hello hive, just wanted to pop in and share the personal website (see profile), I put together almost entirely based on what I learned here. Thanks to Codecademy I went from zero web design experience to becoming relatively proficient in HTML/CSS (and other related things such as flexbox, responsive design, etc.) There’s of course always room for improvement - and all comments / suggestions are appreciated - but I just wanted to offer this as a bit of inspiration for beginner designers. If I can do it, so can you!
P.S. To look up the code, go to my github profile linked on the site.
