We all started somewhere, don't be shy! Share with us how did you learn to create websites and what got you into creating websites (blogs, forums etc).

I remember when the WWW became popular and everyone got into web page creation. A friend of mine figured some things out and gave me the html coding so I could make some simple pages as well. I had a pets page for a while that gave me a lot of confidence so I could advance to making a website for my portrait business. Most of the time I wrote down the coding I needed on a cheat sheet before WYSIWYG software became available.

Started in 2003 with a website and went to forums in 2004. In 2004 I found Invisionfree(no longer around) and never looked back.

Here is my original profile for invisionfree back then,

I simply used Wix website builder, which was not easy at all, and asked my friend to help me with the design. Can it be considered as website building? Well, I guess.

I started writing on hubpages in 2010. Most of my writer friends had a free wordpress blog, so I decided to create my own free wordpress blog in 2012. But the blog was short-lived. created by the first self-hosted blog in 2015. I learned how to create a wordpress blog by reading tutorials.

Learning by trial and error is the best way to learn about website design. 🙂

My command is good on C and C++ language and i was working in a company. The person near me was code in PHP and watch them. Unfortunately for few days internet services provider was shut down for few days and in between i was practice as time pass on developing a directory. Result was good and after few more weeks practice promoted as web developer.
