Prerequisite

Here are a few things you need to get started

  1. A W3school spaces account, you can create one here,
  2. A code to share, I will provide a sample in this article,
  3. and an Internet connection, you're reading this blog already.

If all these are ready, then let's begin.

1. Visit W3Schools try it yourself page

W3school has a try it yourself page, where you get to try out your HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code, without having to leave your browser tabs, the page has an online editor with a preview window by the side.

You should be familiar with this if you're a W3school student 😉.

2. Write some code 👨‍💻

Paste or write your code in the online editor and click on run to see the preview by the right-side.

You can also make a screenshot like the one below for your blog content, your audience will be able to view the code and output at a glance.

Here is the complete code of the page above; you can copy it and make it yours 🤗

<!DOCTYPE html>

<head>
  <title>Page Title</title>
  <style>
    body {
      background-color: purple;
      margin: 0;
    }

    .heading {
      text-align: center;
      font-size: 20px;
      color: white;
      font-family: monospace;
    }
