Hey Thomas, I've put up a really simple website - and I'd like to welcome first time contributors and beginners to help build it out. You can run and test it locally, so no risk of doing any permanent damage. Add something to it, make it beautiful and accessible if you can - and I'll accept the commits. Be explicit in your commits to say what you intend to do with your code - easier for me to approve and easier for other newbies to learn from your edits:

This is my first Hacktoberfest. At first, I thought I was too much of a newbie to participate, but I've seen with OSS is that there's something for everyone. So far, I have opened 2 PRs, working on a 3rd, and hope to get a 4th by the end of the month!

Hello everyone ! Viraj here. I am Frontend Web Developer started my coding journey in September 2020 and created my account on GitHub on 16th September 2020. As new into this environment was disturbed regarding workflows going on it came to know about Hacktoberfest but was not good enough to take part and contribute. Had a dream of recieving swags or planting a tree it's been a year was waiting for this time. I'm registered and got pretty much knowledge how to contribute but still a noob I would appreciate if someone guide me on beginner contributing for Web development projects. Hope I'll achieve my aim this time ! Thanks for this great awesome open source community !
