    Hi everyone,

    I have always been very keen on web design ever since the internet first came about(!) and have had it as a hobby for many years. I've taught myself HTML, CSS and basic PHP out of curiosity, and know how to use the big design programmes like the Adobe suite. Whilst I realise this is far off the actual knowledge I'd need to have for a career, I'm very keen to take the advice of people who are already in this area about how they've come to that point. I'm very interested in creating website/apps/making things happen!

    This is more of a wishful idea I've had than a reality maybe, but I'd love to know whether anybody else has made it from self-taught and interested, into actually managing to make a job out of it. And what kind of route they took. Or if anybody has any suggestions.

    All and any replies, be they positive or negative welcome.


    Have you come across WordPress?
    I self taught myself this platform and have sold websites on the back of it.

    Happy to discuss further
