I've been casually building sites in my free time for almost 20 years, but I recently decided to do it full time. I'm self taught. You should learn:How to be a webmaster? I want to quit my current office work too. Due to Covid, I can’t be freelancing at the moment.
I've been casually building sites in my free time for almost 20 years, but I recently decided to do it full time. I'm self taught. You should learn:
- How databases work, especially MySQL.
- How to setup and use WordPress. This is the most important thing, as nowadays you can make pretty much any kind of site with WordPress.
- Domain management, e.g. how to change nameservers and how DNS records work.
- Server management, as you probably won't use managed hosting forever. This is the most complex thing because you'll need to learn some Linux commands, how to setup Apache and/or nginx, and other technical stuffs.
- Google Analytics, Google Search Console and other useful tools.
- Some basic graphic, security and SEO skills.
There are thousands of free courses and tutorials all over the Internet.

I am just curious to know what are most people on this site from.
I notice many content writers and web developers are from India and Pakistan. So i guess they are good with this industry.
I am personally from China and work as a freelance interpreter. Anyone like me who knows little about website/SEO but accidently came across this site?
