I am 52 years old, trying to get back into freelance graphic design after taking time out to be home with my 3 boys.<br>
I have taken classes in InDesign, PhotoShop, Illustrator and am currently learning web design (html & css) along with Dreamweaver. I am really struggling with web design. I have built a few sites, but it takes an incredible amount of time and frustration getting there. The obstacles seem to be endless, even though I think I have a pretty good understanding of html and the css box model.<br>
I may just be feeling discouraged, but I'm wondering if I'm cut out for this.<br>
I love designing sites, but I'm really struggling with the technical aspect of it and I feel like giving up. Is there a way to bypass years of cussing and hair pulling and still achieve my dream of designing websites for small businesses? I've heard about using WordPress or other CMS to do just this, but I don't know much about it.
I'm wondering where it would be best to put my time and energy?<br>
Thank you in advance. Any guidance you can offer will be appreciated.
