    Years ago, about 2002, I was pretty bored playing around with games and stuff on the computer in my spare time and I loved looking at websites, then I started thinking, I want my own!!

    So naturally I started out on a free webhost using frontpage to create my pages... haha.. and signed up to a few webdesign forums that told me "What the hell are you doing? Get into dreamweaver!!" SO I did :D And after lots of practise etc, learning that you should probably use a domain and real hosting :p I'm here!!

    I believe I still have way more to learn, the web design industry is HUGE, theres always new things to learn and new marketing techniques, thats why I created this site, so we can all learn together :)

    I first started a year ago when my boss wanted a website for his company and seen as I'm good with computers he told me to do it haha :D

    Kinda liked it and now I have my own little site running but not really released to public yet, I'll let you guys know when its finished!

    back in 2001 I started using Piczo and FreeWebs as I wanted my own website then I thought:

    So then I searched and searched and found a host, then I got confused and said:

    so then I learned HTML and designed a site, it was rubbish, it has no colour at all! so then I thought:

    So I got some TEMPLATES! and then used them so I was expert


    Now I am using quite advanced PHP and Javascript as well!!

    and thats my story.

    :D lol :yay: :wave:

    I got into web design as I was taking a course at school for programming and one of our assignments was to make a site with HTML, from there I kept it going and now am making good money with it via Google Adsense :)

    I found a book in my school library dedicated to making your own website. It covered only very basic HTML, then I dove deeper...

    Is web design more interesting than application programming?

    HTML code is quite easy. And if you start with something more easier like C++ or C with time you will learn PHP
