You Will Eventually Need To Learn Some Coding Starting With HTML
Knowing and understanding the basic HTML framework will help but it’s not necessary unless you want to develop and design your blog theme. There are so many themes on WordPress.org, WordPress.com and Blogger.com to choose from so unless you know advance HTML your better option will be to select a theme provided by these entities and tweak it to your liking. However, if you really want to develop and design your own theme there are resources you can use to do so – you just need the time, patience and the willingness to invest in a few courses.
Then CSS For Sure
Knowing CSS have been very helpful. It has allowed me to somewhat customize this blog theme to my liking and so far I think it’s alright. I don’t think I will make changes anytime soon, because it is very time-consuming.
Where You Can Learn Programming Languages
If you are willing to learn programming languages there are resources available. Some are totally free while others will require a monetary investment not just your time. However, whatever method you choose is solely up to you. I used Coursera, Udemy, Treehouse, Khan Academy, W3Schools, Code.org, and of course good old YouTube. They were all helpful to various degrees but nothing bets crashing your website a couple of times and having to delete the database and starting all over. Trust me, if you are an inquisitive hands-on learner like me then messing things up a few times will definitely help. Here are a few websites that provide great content for new bloggers who want to learn the basics or just anyone who wants to learn programming languages for web design and web development projects:
