I am not really an experts (yet), but I think I would be able to start blogging. This way it could help me learn faster and actually motivate me to learn. Basically I think that if I started blogging I would also start reading more about the web stuff, and participate such forums to help and not only when I need help. So the benefits are endless for us that wish to learn more.
However I have been researching and trying to gather materials so that I have a collection of (almost) ready to publish posts, so that I do not end up writing once a month. I have noticed that I am relatively good in css2, jquery and find in other things. I am absolutely confident that I am able to write a lot of material with a beginner in mind.
So as CSS3 and HTML5 have been in use for some time – with reservations but still usable non the less – do you think there is any point to cover that basics of web design. and how basic. Would explaining the html tags be too basic? for example creating a basic html page and explaining in detail what H, ul, li … tags are – what that be too basics to blog about (too basic as in would it have an audience)
Of course I am not going to blog about things that I find really really basic (like the example above) but I just would like to form a picture on my head of what should I be aiming for. Obviously my ultimate aim would be to learn the skill of how to be on top of the game, and blog about the most latest things. But until I get warmed up, find my own voice and confidence, I would really need some of your suggestions -
Absolutely! The basics are the most important part. In regards to your audience, I think that would depend on the quality of your articles. There are many resources out their for learning already, but if you do something a little different, and offer something that none of the others offer, then the audience will certainly grow.
In the end, you will learn either way, so I say go for it 100%.
That is true, I will need to have a different approach to the existing resources. Though I hope that I will find my unique approach along the way. I know that, as it is my first time blogging, it is going to be a trial and error journey until I find the best approach to fit me. I just didn’t want to start and publish content that (no matter the quality) it would not be useful to any one, as it be too basic
when writing the tutorials, at the end, I would need to have a live example. do you think it be a good idea to use services like these http://jsfiddle.net/ or create an example template on my website? Thanks
