    Well there are many levels of "designing a web site". There are people who just make pretty pages, then there are those that make functional websites (for example care cure is a combination of web design and application programming (sign in logic, storing posts in a database, displaying posts in threads, etc). There is more money in being able to program a website than just making a static one. I have two web programmers in my company and they both make in the six figures.

    The pluses are you can teach yourself to do it all for free, the downside is it is very competitive and it is a lot more complex that people think.

    Boyyy six figures! Need to get certified! I've been self training for the past seven years and have gotten pretty productive without formal training. Although, I do advise going to school if you are really interested because you will advance much faster. As T8 aid theres a differnce between Designers(artsy) and programers(coding). Its good to know a little of both(or alot) but usually people focus on one or the other. Also html is just one of several languages to learn to begin building websites.

    Heres a list of things to learn in order(IMO):

    1. HTML - site structure
    2. CSS - site structure style
    3. javascript - sites flexibility clientside
    4. PHP - sites flexibility serverside
    5. MySQL - sites database storage(pw, users, user info, ect)

    Those are the basics. Once you understand how to use all of those together the web world is yours! There is alotta great tutorials on youtube but I think the best online training is lynda.com . Also I can't leave out w3schools.com , its helped me tons too.

    HMU if u need any help.

    A career, dunno 'bout that. Jobs? Work? Yeah.

    We have used Elance so we don't need to pay anybody a six figure salary.

    Choose to specialize in one area. Many folks make money by only building WordPress sites, and good WP development requires everything Padred listed.

    Good luck!

    P.S. All the smart people on CC should start a virtual company for web design, content management, etc. I see lots of talent out there. Has this ever been tried? (I'm to dum to know -- too lazy to look it up).

    I'd throw in...

    1. HTML5 ...new version of HTML, not yet widely accepted, but will be.
    2. CSS - and go beyond jjust fonts and colors. You can do a lot with CSS
    3. Jscript - Microsoft's version
    4. ASP.NET - Again, Microsoft's page generator, but I personally avoid the "widgets" and use VBScript in "code beside" or VB.NET "code behind".
    5. Microsoft SQL.

    Yup, HTML5 is a must for new sites and stick with CSS-3.

    I'd also add jQuery to the mix if you want to do any serious web stuff.

    Also look into WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, etc. for CMS.

Equipment: TiLite ZRA 2 and 2GX, Spinergy ZX-1, RioMobility Firefly. Knowledge: relative newbie for high-level equipment (2012), but willing to try to help others who are new with similar limitations (definitely not a guru, but inquisitive).

    jQuery really made a difference.
