If you run a website, how did you learn to do it? Did you take a course, read a book, have a tutor, or learn on the net?

I started learn about making a website from a friend, and i just got the basics, just for fun. Since i am a kind of curious guy, i also read some tutorials on internet, and i think good enough, and complete tutorial lists on net, reading some ebooks is great also. If you really want to learn seriously, you have to take a course for PHP or ASP, because most sites using that language.

I need to look that stuff up. I really should learn something as opposed to wasting time on sites that do nothing for my future.

I actually started my web design business because of a computer/internet course I was teaching. I created web pages to teach my students and before I knew it I was making money online. Not much but enough to know that I wanted my own online business. I have now been working from my own home office for six years and wouldn't have it any other way. It all starts with an interest and then it was just learning one thing at a time and learning it well.

I should have been on the wagon back then. Is there still a market for web designers? With all the pre-packaged web builder software and so many free sub-domains it seems a daunting market. Congrats on a successful business. I wish we all were as hard workers as you.

I taught myself through a mixture of reading books and looking on the internet. I haven't ever done a course, but when I first learnt there weren't any available. I think these days if you want a job on the web you need to do a course, I'm lucky because I have experience now and that is always useful.

I like your site Michelle. It is clean and nav is easy. Seems there is potential for advetising and money making. Most important it is informative. You taught yourself well.

I just learned by doing, trial and error. But there is a vast amount of tutorials available online that can help you do just about anything. Also, free forums. I had a problem with Javascript form validation, and I found a forum where a very nice person helped me until I had it working.
