Netwalk with ourselves & like-minded entrepreneurs on the last Friday of every month.


Louis Learns

We don't have job titles at Bare. In theory, this allows everyone to nimbly jump from role to role without being told to get back in their tunnel-vision nook. 

I'm a writer, and have been for years, so given the above, I figured it was high time to broaden my horizons. This week, I started learning HTML and CSS (don't worry lovely clients, all in my spare time). I'd like to use the Bare blog as a place to chart my progress over the coming weeks and months, and if you've got any tips for me, please share them in the comments.

Much love,


Things I learned last week

  • How to make lists
  • What HTML and CSS stand for, why it's important that they exist separately, and how they behave
  • The absolute basics
  • About elements, classes and IDs (and also a bit about pseudo elements and specificity)
  • About padding, borders, and margins (and the relationship between them)
  • About why the hell we use <div> elements

Things I need to learn this week

  • How to split things (e.g. lists) into two columns
  • About 'float'
  • About properly structuring things on the page
  • How to repurpose certain basic elements (like headers) so I can hit the ground running between projects
  • Increasing my HTML/CSS vocabulary

My skills in action:
