Small Business, Web Development
Are you looking for something to learn in 2019? Wanting to fix or extend your website. Why not start to learn web development.
Learning web development can be freeing, captivating and overall, really cool. You can fix things yourself, which is key if something goes wrong and you can’t get in touch with the developer. And you can feel really confident with your website.
So why not give it a shot?
It will help you fix problems
And even if you don’t know exactly what the problem is or how to fix it, you’ll know enough to where you can properly explain the problem to me or another developer. As a developer myself, that is such a big help when the person is able to describe the problem in detail.
I still remember when I was starting out as a developer. It took a while for me to really feel comfortable asking questions and figuring out what to ask to get the answers I needed. But as I’ve grown in skill and confidence I know exactly where to go if I can’t figure it out. I have no doubt the same will happen to you.
Tell the Story of Your Small Business With a Website
Every small business has a story. And every small business needs a website to help tell it. A website allows people to find you online, serves as a home base for any marketing effort and can help you tell the story of your business. So if you’re ready to give your business its first website or are ready to take your site to the next level, let’s get started on making that happen.Let’s Get Started on Telling Your Story With a Website
You can extend WordPress and your website easier
Also, knowing web development also makes it much easier to extend and customize your website and WordPress. You don’t have to go out looking for a web developer. Instead, you can just do most of it yourself (although I still would like to throw a word of caution about design. Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should, especially if you don’t know design).
Fun fact: some of the code I wrote is in the football side of the Sports Bench plugin that I sell. And it all came because I wanted to know how to extend my existing website and blog.
It’s fun to learn
But most of all, it’s fun to learn web development. It’s really cool to type something in an editor and see it on the page. It’s like being an artist but not having to worry about a physical canvas and paint.
That’s what really hooked me into wanting to be a web developer. I never really had the talent for being an artist, but I wanted to create things. Web development and creating webpages gave that to me. Creating things on the screen was kind of addicting and I wanted to keep on doing it. It was fun.
And I think you’ll find that it’s pretty fun too once you get the hang of it.
So if you’re looking for something to learn here in 2019, try your hand at web development. You’ll find it’s easier and more fun than you might imagine.
