    Hi all, just a quick bit of homework for you!

    Please come to class with a list (mental or physical) of what you would like your site to do, or what you would like people to be able to do when they visit the site. For example:
    - I want to sell products
    - I want people to be able to see my Twitter stream
    - I want to post recipes
    - I want to show my Goodreads ratings and reviews

      Not a worry -- hopefully there will be another Intermediate class in future, it's always tricky fitting around everyone's schedules! Catch you at the next one :-)

    • Raquel M.
