Hey @Jono-hare! Congrats on finishing your tribute page. There are a lot of good things going on here. The main thing for me is that the text is a little hard to read at times. For example, the red text underneath his name is a little hard to read. So, maybe just change the color to white since you have a dark background.
Also, for the timeline, the text could be spaced out a little more just for easier readability. So, maybe you could mess around with the line height a little bit.
I think you should be proud of yourself and don’t be ashamed of how long it took you to complete this project. I am beginner as well (3months in ) and currently working on the product page. I have spent about a week working on this and ending up starting over with the CSS twice because it was such a hot mess. But I finally have it looking the way I want it to and will probably have it finished tomorrow.
When it comes to other people’s code and design, you have to remember that some people might have had prior experience with HTML and CSS . Or they might be taking other classes in addition to this one and doing multiple projects at the same time. It just takes practice and patience.
