During this course, I'll be asking you to complete super quick, easy homework assignments.
To do these assignments, I want you to have a place on your blog that you can play with the code you've learned. In the web design world, we call these sandboxes—a place where you can be curious and try new things before your code goes live on the web.

And that's it! Your sandbox is ready to go.
Note: Nothing you create in your sandbox can break your site! When you're using HTML inside a page or post, it only makes changes to that area. I won't interfere with your theme.
However, later on we will be adding CSS to your stylesheet. If done incorrectly, it could interfere with your site's theme settings. However, it's a simple case of deleting the CSS code and voila! Your site is back to normal.

And here are instructions on how to do this in Squarespace.
