    My first intro didn't post for some reason, so I am re-doing it again. I have a decent amount of programming experience for data and analytics related stuff but am learning web development now. Trying my best to get started with internet marketing. My dream is to be able to quit my stupid corporate job.

    I have probably made about 5 bucks online so far! :(

    Also, is there a good way to use this forum on iPad and iPhone? What apps do you use for it?

    From one BHW noob to another, welcome! I'm also trying to learn some web dev skills to supplement my IM curiosities. I guess neither of us want 9 to 5s... ;)

    I can't tell you how much I hate the 9-5! :)

    And yes, I had to re-register because I noticed I misspelled my intended username! :)

    It's not an exploit, it is 2 different accounts both opened by OP because he misspelled his username the first time.

    Welcome to BHW, i have been here for few mounts and i can tell you it is a great forum where you can find everything that you need. Also i suggest you watch some SEO tutorials and read some good threads about SEO and some good journeys here on BHW, you will get the hang of it in time.
    Also we are on opposite sides, im good at SEO but REALLY bad at programming and coding... :)

    Thanks for everyone for your kind words of encouragement! I will be setting up a journey thread later today and will post here again when the first post is done. I believe my first site will be an amazon affiliate site. So, we will see how it goes.

    I guess I will be using wordpress for my first site. As an amatuer web developer I am not really that big on Wordpress because it has always seemed slow to me. Also, I haven't studied a lot of PHP yet so that may have something to do with my hesitance in using it. Still, I don't want to re-invent the wheel and wordpress seems to be the fastest way to get started. I plan on learning PHP anyway in the next few months so who knows maybe I will eventually become a wordpress expert! :)

    I have my own Ubuntu 14.04 VPS already that is running some HTML/CSS/JavaScript tools/websites that I created so I am thinking about just installing Wordpress on it and using it. I wonder though If I shouldn't just get a cheap Namecheap shared hosting plan for whatever domain I decide to go with and just use that at first. I do like running things on my own VPS because then I can do all of the log analysis I want and have full control...

    Finally, I am going to need a good wordpress theme to go with. Let me know if anyone has any good suggestions. I am not against the idea of paying for one for one at all, if it is a good theme. I do need it to be fully responsive and preferably developed from a Mobile-first perspective. I think most traffic these days is mobile based. I think it is even a lot higher than most statistics out there.

    Thanks, man! There is a LOT of material here! I love it! Let me know what journey threads and other threads you really found helpful! Also, feel free to reach out to me if you have some programming related questions. I may not have time to do some in-depth programming for free but who knows, it may be something simple that I can solve in like 5 seconds.
