Feast your hungry eyes on this sick hand written code.

Here's my handwritten code. Feeling good about my progress so far.
Check out my assignment <a href="http://mstlyphnx.tumblr.com/post/41196921419/2-1-writing-by-hand">here</a>!
Here's my new blog post!
Thanks for looking and critiqueing!
Mine is here. I have to admit my hand really hurt from writing on paper. I'm so used to typing code directly if you know what I mean.
And I keep forgetting that we're at the age of HTML5 now so the DOCTYPE tags were hard for me to remember, or rather get used to.
<title> Hello World by Susie Creamcheese</title>
This code is written by hand. How awesome am I?
</html>I have no idea what I just wrote...First attempt at any type of computer code ever. How do you meter how many indentations each line has relative to the others when you are doing it by hand?
It really doesn't matter about the indents, they are just there to make it easier to read.
The tags mean:
<!DOCTYPE html> This is a document written in HTML
<html> This is where the HTML starts
<head> This is the start of the head of the document - this tells the browers and search engines about the document, things in the head dont appear in the main part of the page.
<meta charset="utf-8"> Character set used in doucment utf-8 covers most letters, numbers and symbols, but if you were writing in another language you might use a different character set, like Cyrillic
<title> Start of title - this shows in the header bar at the top of your browser
</title> End of title
</head> End of head of document
<body> Start of body of document, this s what appears inside a browser window
<p> Start of paragraph
</p> End of paragraph
</body> End of body of document
</html> End of html
Hope that's useful.
