Hey! So I am attempting to code something using blogging platforms the very first time however the validator does not appear to love me. Consider the error I acquired while validating:

Line 87, Column 33: document type doesn't allow element "li" here missing among "ul", "ol", "menu", "dir" start-tag

I have looked everywhere, I am unaware of any missing or misplaced li or ul tags

can someone assist me on that one?
