    I got into it in 2005 when I volunteered to take over my diving club's web page.
    Back then I didn't know the first thing about HTML or CSS, but once I started learning I couldn't stop.
    I ended up completely redesigning my club's entire site, then realised I could make money out of web design, and I haven't looked back since.

    That's great, I know webdesign is the same for me. It's a passion and the endless creativity keeps us going!

    1. I was doing lots of graphic design stuff and started noticing the web in the late 90s, seemed obvious it was going to be around for a while and was worth learning how to build websites, got more enthusiastic as I realised how easy websites made it to reach out to people worldwide and find people interested in what you were doing etc.
    2. Basically ditto, I love the international ease of it all, and am looking forward to learning HTML5 properly seeing some of the things that can be acheived, up until recently websites always felt pretty much like print graphic design on a screen, now they're using technology that much more to be their own medium.

    I wish I allready had as much experience as you do! But I love learning anyway. HTML5 is exciting indeed, learning about it along with a lot of other stuff now!

    I spent a lot of it with bad habits though! A thing I like about web design is that although experience is really great, everything changes so quickly new people can come in any time and not be at much of a disadvantage.

    Why did you get into it, was it about money maybe? Or because you wanted to share something on the webs?

    I started out building CD-ROM multimedia presentations some 10 years ago. It was a very long process until the final product was available to the end user. On web I love the fact that you can create and publish to the entire world instantly.

    Nothing particularly actually. I started having fun in PS, ended up on learning html/css (dunno why, thought that was my next step after PS basics), bought few good books and that's it.
    I still consider myself beginner, since I'm on it for maybe 6 months or so. Loving it from the start.

    Then I think it is the hunger for knowledge, a lot of people that comment say they like to learn more and more!
    Webdesign is great because there is always more to learn!

    hmm, possible. But I don't think its hunger for knowledge in general, because I study economy/tourism(one more year and I'm done) at the moment and I'm not hungry at all.
    In the meantime, notepad++ at home

    Don't get me wrong, economy stuff is always good to know. But I think you don't need college for the things you really enjoy, and if you have the time to dedicate to it, why not.
    My friends come home and play games whole day and I did that too two years ago but then I realized that you can do it all if u organize things better. You will feel much better too.

    I don't quite understand your reply. Did you enter webdesign because you like to attract people?

    First of all my friend opened a website for me and it was kind like had for me to run that website without any knowledge on websites and design, this was my fast step into webdesign and up to now am still in the same thing, I gain experience day by day through forums discussions and searching.

    I started a cartooning diploma about fours ago. It soon dawned on me that i was trying to enter a highly competitive industry and looked at trying to promote myself better. Someone suggested that i create a website to showcase my cartoons. But because i couldn't afford to pay for one, i got myself and ebook on HTML off ebay and soon found myself hooked.

    I needed an escape from my fulltime job.. doing some freelance webdesign for local companies gave me some confidence to be independent. But I'd like to move on to other things like app development.

    Running a small family business 12 years ago (timber yard) I decided that we 'needed to be online'. I set about learning html, css and built our business a static html site.
    I used that website as my learning tool, created it for the customer's use (NOT me as the designer) and it worked! I included prices, sizes, images, easy contact us forms and included technical specs that were 'end-user' readable. That first website I'm sure kept us in business for a few years more than had we not had a 'working' website. I often came out first page on Google for searches (early days then) and was proud of it.

    From that very first website 12 years ago, by far the biggest thing I have learnt is that YOU HAVE TO BUILD A WEBSITE FOR THE END USER, not what YOU think is a good thing! It doesn't need to look pretty (it helps though) but it just needs to work!

    I'm not a programmer, nor a graphic designer, nor done any university degrees or read books, (but boy I've done lots of searching websites online!!). I'm just a practical small business person - been there done that, love what I do and work damned hard to keep happy and appreciative clients. And they refer me on - that has to be a good thing! I NEVER profess to any of my clients however, to being anything other than I am - totally self-taught but practical and honest.

    I build my client sites, host them, provide 24/7 personal service, travel heaps with my retired husband, (I love an online business!!) and love life!

    I believe there are "probably" 2 sets of web people out there - the real nerdy ones who've done the uni, the courses, know all the coding and programming stuff, work for others, go home each night with a clear head, build fabulous sites for corporate and major companies, and then there's small business web folk like myself who prefer the small business end of town, been there done that, don't need the hi tech stuff but create sites that - quite simply - work. We also tend to work weird hours!

    Both sides have their pros and cons (and I'm not knocking any of you hi-tech folk, you do great stuff) - where do you fit in?
