I cannot provide you with the image, you can download the image according to your own and create a folder named images and keep it inside that folder.

you have to give the correct path in src

Here are the steps to create a home page for your blog using HTML and CSS:

  • The <!DOCTYPE> declaration at the top of the HTML file tells the browser which version of HTML is being used.
  • The <html> tag surrounds all of the content on the page and is required for all HTML documents.
  • The <head> tag contains meta-information about the document, such as the title of the page, which is displayed in the browser's title bar or tab, and links to external resources like CSS stylesheets.
  • The <body> tag contains the content that is visible on the page.
  • The <header> tag is used to define a container for introductory content or a set of navigational links.
  • The <nav> tag is used to create a section for navigation links.
  • The <main> tag is used to define the main content of a document.
  • The <footer> tag is used to create a container for the footer of a document, typically containing information about the author, copyright information, and links to related documents.
  • The <ul> and <li> tags are used to create an unordered list.
  • The <img> tag is used to embed images in the HTML document.
  • The <a> tag is used to create hyperlinks to other web pages or to specific locations within the same page.

The CSS styles provided in the code sample are used to control the layout and appearance of the page. Some of the key concepts used in the CSS include:

  • Selectors are used to target specific HTML elements and apply styles to them. For example, the body selector targets the <body> tag, while the header h1 selector targets the <h1> tag within the <header> tag.
  • Properties such as color, background-color, padding, and margin are used to control the layout and appearance of the page.
  • The text-align property is used to align text within an element
  • The display: flex; property is used to create a flexible layout and align elements horizontally or vertically.
  • The max-width and max-height properties are used to set the maximum width and height of an image.
  • The position: relative/absolute; property is used to position an element relative to its normal position or relative to its parent element.
  • The transition property is used to add a hover effect on the element
  • hover pseudo-class is used to change the state of an element when the user hovers over it.

It's important to keep in mind that the code sample is a basic example and you can add more advanced features as per your requirement.

Make sure to test your code on different devices and browsers to ensure that it looks and works as expected. And don't forget to validate your HTML and CSS using the W3C validator to check for any errors or compatibility issues.
