The statement that almost anyone needs a personal website nowadays needs no proof. We all now that whether you are a freelancer, entrepreneur, or just a creative individual, having your website is a must for finding your readers. Of course, you can use the platforms like Blogger and WordPress, but it’s the good option for bloggers rather than for promoting your business.
The last is easy to achieve by creating a personal website, and today you can do it by yourself, even if the word “coding” gives you goosebumps. Do not worry – here is the introduction to basics of HTML and CSS that won’t scare you. I’ll tell you more – once you begin, it will become a fun way to spend your leisure time!
Before you start your coding career on Treehouse or CodeAcademy (the best website t learn how to code, IMHO), I strongly advise you to start with the old proven way to learn anything – reading a book. A little bit of colorful theory, inspiration and first thought on “what’s going on” won’t be useless, believe me.
