I found it difficult in creating the website because it was hard to put hyperlinks in and the changes that I did to the website is that I changed the background so that it is easier to read the text and I changed the look of the title so that it stands out.

The next time I create a website I will think more about the layout than I did and to do this I would research more website. Also I would learn ahead of time how to use dream weavers make my website look better and I would spend more time on thinking about what to put into the pages. ...read more.
