If web design isn’t for you don’t forget about the back end of things. PHP programming has become a web “designers” second talent but there are languages other than html and css that you could learn and still impact the web scene. Learning programming languages like Java & C# (develop Android Apps), Objective C (develop Apple iPad, iPhone Apps). ASP.net has started to make a comeback for lower end businesses.
I honestly don’t think learning programming languages is hard mainly because its like a big formula or a big puzzle to solve. Mind you there is creativity involved in writing programs.
If you love technology and it is something you are passionate about than i’m sure you could pick it up quickly, just don’t overwhelm yourself. Just start with basics and fundamentals.
Depending on your location, computer programming can support yourself, your family, and maybe a couple other families.
