About FairyTales.biz

It's Me!

Hello World!

My name is Stella Gurin. Now, I'm 10 years old (2009). This is my first attempt to create a website.

I'd like to become a Web Developer. In the middle of March 2009, when I was 9 year old, I decided to start learning the basics: HTML (HyperText Markup Language) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) languages.

I read a nice, with clear explanation and examples, book: Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML published by O'Reilly and written by Elisabeth Freeman, M.S. in Computer Science, and her partner Eric Freeman, Ph.D in Computer Science, both graduated from Yale Univesity.

I love fairy tales that's why I came up with an idea to put most famous fairy tales and fables together for people who share my joy to read classic tales.

Also, I like to play some kids games, and for this reason alone I created and you can find a game section that consist of 20 games at the time when I release FairyTales.biz live.

FairyTales.biz is a static website - means I "Hard-Coded" every single line of my codes. Besides that fact that I coded HTML and CSS files I also utilized some JavaScript and PHP snippets.

My Text Editor of choice is a free of charge "Notepad++". By the way, I never use any of WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) softwares, such as FrontPage, Dreamweaver, etc. Of course those type of softwares facilite the process of developement, BUT they create a lot of coding mistakes. Even if those pages look normal that's just because the browsers activate "Quirks Mode", but mostly they cannot pass "W3C Markup Validation" test, and as a result considered not to be Search Engine Friendly, what pushes the site position down among the search result competitors.

I'm planning to get deeper in the process of learning JavaScript/Ajax and PHP along with MySQL database in order to be able in the future to write a dynamic website, when the pages will be created, "On-The-Fly", on the server's side using database entries.

I found a great need to learn and use on a daily basis a PhotoShop software in order to create picture/image files.

Within the previous years, viral videos have become very popular. On this site, you can watch some of my favorite videos. Currently, there are 10 videos for viewing and more to come.

If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the site's performance, or to share my experience "How to get started with Web Development?", etc., don't hesitate to Contact me.


Enjoy & Have Fun!
