Dabbling in the coding world (again)

It’s been many years since I’ve attempted entering the world of programming.  I was 13 years old when I first started making my own website through a service formerly known as Express Pages.  I don’t know if any of you guys had the honor of using their service but it was awesome learning basic html.  I remember referring to Funky Chickens it was an exciting time! I remember I was a huge fan of B*Witched, Lilo and Stitch, Pokemon, and basketball.  Ah… the nostalgia.  Am I trying to regain that sense of high?  Probably. …but more importantly I am sick and tired of feeling helpless whenever I feel like exploring and idea or changing something in my forum and blog and I have to rely on other people to solve my problems for me.  Don’t get me wrong, support people are amazing and those that do it voluntarily oh man I am so grateful! …but I want to learn to stand on my own two feet – learn how to fish per say.

I guess I stopped trying to learn coding because I was intimidated by all of the fancy jargon… c++, javacript, joomla, whatever I have no idea what these things are.  But… I’m going to learn.  Where to start? I don’t know.  I’m hoping I will stumble the information I need if I just hang around webmaster forums long enough. Wish me luck!
