I’ve been persistent with codecademy 18 months ago

I know some HTML basics, but I just don’t care much about getting better at it at this time. 2 years ago
Coding/programming just doesn’t come easily to me; I have been at it for a period spanning about 20 years.
But as I write for a music blog, I do feel motivated to step up my skills just a bit. The guy that runs WHM seems a natural at it—he did a lot with VOX’s crappy interface and still fixes my little mistakes even though TypePad’s interface (where the blog is primarily hosted currently) is better and formatting is a lot easier.
I did have to tell him I had some basic HTML knowledge when I asked for help, but I got some useful pieces to study (again). I’ll have to be more diligent at committing commands to memory. 2 years ago
Letting it go. I have more oppotunities in other areas and i can pay people to do the web 3 years ago
After 2 years, I finally completed my Associates. In the process I learned HTML and absolutely enjoy it! 3 years ago
I ignored this one too long, and now 4 of my sites have been hacked. And guess what? NO BACKUP! Have to re-create everything from scratch, which will take weeks.
The good news, though, is that I finally figured out why my sales had dried up literally overnight. Grrrrrr!
Silver lining: I’ve learned a LOT about the inner workings of Wordpress, and I’ll be able to make the site better than ever.
[EDIT – 06/30/2011] Evidently, I removed all the offending code. In the last 2 days, I have made almost $100, so it looks like my affiliate links are tracking correctly again. :) 3 years ago
