    Question What got you into webdesign?

    Hello everybody,

    I'd like to hear your stories on how webdesign began for you and what makes you like it so much!
    So here's 2 questions:

    1. What was the first time you were like; Yes webdesign is my thing!

    2. What do you like so much about webdesign

    My answers:
    1. I was playing around with WordPress about 7 months ago, I just couldn't stop learning about webdesign all day that day.
    2. I love the creative aspect of it, just getting the looks and details Perfect gives me a .. smile.

    Much love from The Netherlands/Amsterdam,
    Milan

    Since I saw a computer for the first time, I knew it would influence my life in a big way. This was like 17 years ago...
    Especially when I also found out about this thing called the Internet a couple of years later.

    1. About web design, I was fiddling with the computer day and night and I wanted to create my own web pages, that was the time when I found out about HTML, CSS, etc. Back then there was no WordPress or jQuery, just plain and dirty HTML, CSS and IE6.

    2. What I love about web design, that as with everything, not everybody can do it, because design is a subjective matter. The process from designing something and seeing it used by somebody else, in sometimes unexpected ways, is awesome.

    For me, it was also the creative aspect. Originally, I learnt the basics of programming as a 12 year old back in 1998 by making mods/levels for games of the time. I needed somewhere to showcase my mods so naturally got into web programming/design. I learnt the basics of HTML and CSS in no time but quickly developed an interest PHP (And to a lesser extent, perl, but I found that a lot more difficult). The knowledge I gained by essentially messing around creating sites for various game mods and guilds/clans I was part of grew and grew. By the time I left university almost 10 years later I had a very firm grasp of web development and found a job doing exactly that. Somewhat worryingly, this means I've been programming for almost 15 years now.

    I love both game design and web design, but I always keep those things like a hobby because I have soooo many other interests too.
    For now I'm studying communication, so i'll see where I end up :P

    1. What was the first time you were like; Yes webdesign is my thing!
    2. What do you like so much about webdesign
    When i first made a website in 1999. Our family friends had a local business for apartment rent and i made the website to advertise it on the internet. I added 10% to their prices and it was "my commission". I was a high school student back than and there i think i made enough money to buy a car in less then a year (which was something i could never even dream about). At that point it was like a dream come true — answering your second question — i always wanted to do something creative but creative is rarely well payed and web design seemed like a combination of both: creative+fun and well payed.
    I am doing it since then.

    I would be happy if I could make money with webdesign. Now I get sales and advertisement income with one slow website. But one day I will be the greatest!!

    I like figuring out things for myself.

    You could say I'm a control freak but in a healthy way.

    Most of the people, me included, do this because of the learning process and the creativity it allows.
    And webdesign is ever evolving, always something new to learn, so I think it will remain a fun thing to us all!

    I hope that the fun of learning and creativity does not go away when it becomes my job, because that day is soon!
    Looking forward to that!

    1. I studied computer science in college and it didn't touch enough on web design... turns out I really liked it. Putting out content for the world to see.
    2. The best part is when you feel as though people really got something good out of your site-- when you make a site that is useful and someone spends time on your site to get good info they need.
