Learning Diary: 

In this unit I improved on all the HTML code from the website by styling it with css. Similar to Unit 2 I have had lots of experience with css in the past, so it was relatively straight forward, and I just tried my best to stick within the theme for the site. I tried to stick to a more neutral, yet classy color scheme. This was to keep within the goal of not making the website too flash, as the main goal is ease of access for anyone trying to use it, and I don’t want them to get distracted by other things while navigating through the website. The homepage was made to flow between the different products that are offered with each section guiding you onto the next. I broke apart the css into different files to help improve the maintainability of the code but ended up linking every page to index.css anyway as it had base styling for every page. If I were to do it again, I would split that file into 2 to have styling specific to the homepage and styles for every page such that there is less unused code being loaded into each page.
