Learning HTML is really easy -- you can be up and running in less than an afternoon, believe it or not. There simply isn't that much to it. I'll tell you how I learned HTML: A long, long time ago I was stuck in Nashua, New Hampshire.
Here are links and resources mentioned in today's video. Enjoy!
I was teaching a week-long class, and after everyone had gone home at the end of the first day, I was faced with the decision to either go back to my hotel alone and do nothing until class began the next morning...
...or order take-out, hunker down in the empty classroom and finally learn HTML all night long. Well that's what I did -- I told myself, I'm not going back to the hotel until I've learned the basics of HTML!
Admittedly I hit some bumps and obstacles, but pretty soon I was going "Is this all there is? When does it get hard?" I got through the HTML guide I was using, and packed it in and headed back to the hotel way earlier than I thought.
I was both ticked off at myself for putting off something so simple for months and months, and also invigorated that it was all so much simpler than I'd thought!
Believe it or not, but this was way, way back in the late 90s. I've been building websites and running online businesses since! And even though a lot has changed since then, HTML hasn't really.
The basics are still the basics. And looking forward, HTML will be in use for a long, long time to come.
So, HTML is very easy to learn and it ain't going anywhere soon. You might find it a bit challenging if you're not too comfortable with computers or using the internet. But if you're fine with basic word processing, copying and pasting -- that kinda stuff -- then you'll find HTML very easy.
Hope you enjoyed. See ya next time!
