HTML Basics for Bloggers



Twenty years ago, even if you were just an avid blogger, you needed to know some web coding to save yourself or add a simple function to your website. But now there are so many editors and plugins available that no longer need to know the basics of HTML to create a website or run a blog.


The problem with this is that if you don’t know the basics you can easily get into real trouble with your blog and hire a web developer to fix it which can be a small problem. Not only this, with the help of this article you can do wonders for your blog.


And if you’re experiencing content latency that doesn’t seem right, HTML knowledge can get you back on track.


Here are some of our versions of the HTML Guide for Bloggers and Non-Technical Content Owners.


HTML is the backbone of today’s internet. Millions of websites came together to create the Internet. Where HTML is the building block of all these websites.


Initial questions and answers

1- What is HTML?

HTML is the abbreviation for Hyper Text Markup L is the standard language for tagging content for web browsers.


HTML is represented by “Elements”. Elements are also known as “tags”.


2- Why HTML is needed?

Web browsers may only offer a website when it is written in their supported language. HTML is the most common markup language and is the most widely accepted by web browser.


So you need HTML.


3- Is HTML case sensitive?

HTML is not case sensitive. But the best principle is to write HTML with the right cases.


Steps to create your first HTML file

You can create a basic HTML file on your computer using Notepad for Windows and Redit. The above software mentioned are called Text Editors, they have limited functionality with little or no debugging capability hence would be painful to write too many lines of code.


You need a code editor. A good code editor will make it easier to write and organize large codes.


I use and recommend Notepad ++ (free and open source) for writing web languages. There are other editors you can use for successful text, atom etc.


Here’s what you need to do:


  • Install a code editor
  • Open it
  • Create a new file
  • Save it as a .html file format


(I recommend you save your first web page as index.html)


You’re ready to go!
