Web design can be a great pass time income earning career. Good web designers can make on average $10,000 on a single job and partake in 3-4 jobs on a single month. So, the question is where to start. Programming can be tedious, time consuming and frustrating to say the least especially for beginners and when undertaking a novel task. In my opinion, to be a good web designer basic programming knowledge is necessary despite of the numerous platforms like WordPress and Joomla that enable creation without coding. This is due to the fact that nothing is without bugs to fix and without something extra to be twitched or changed to meet the users needs. It’s advisable however to start with simple languages like Html and CSS then to learn a CMS of your choice like WordPress or Joomla. Be advised that there are numerous CMS (content management systems) available, though they are mostly similar you should pick your choice wisely.
WordPress for me is better when beginning a web design career due to its ease of use and most importantly its large community. The large community provides solutions, themes, plugins and insights on development and issue management. WordPress also has free available tutorials and cheap affordable courses starting at $3.99 tasksandcrafts.com/courses/WordPress. Let me explain a bit more why WordPress is a good place to start.

According to WordPress, more than 409 million people view more than 23.6 billion pages each month and users produce 69.5 million new posts and 46.8 million new comments every month. There are numerous developers and contributors to the platform allowing the functionality of its plugins and themes to have a huge capability of building even the most complex of platforms with little coding. This is the main reason to use WordPress ‘functionality’. Though if you know your needs to be more specific platforms like Shopify suite you’re needs of ecommerce. WordPress also offers a chance for you to create a plugin that solves a problem and charge a subscription for its use. Theme developers can also sell their creations on the platform.
