    So, few weeks ago somebody told me about this website and here I am... Let me first write few words about me:

    So, I am 16 year old kid from small European country. I have a lot of hobbies and passions and one of them are computers - programming actually. Only computer we had in family was old toshiba laptop - so nothing fun was about computers in my childhood (no games). I had to entertain myself in different way - I started to learn how to make websites. I started to make shitty localhost websites in HTML and now I know a lot more (I know very very good to program in: xhtml, css, js, java, php... because of programming I even started with digital electronics). I know a lot about web technologies.

    You can see that I am not beginner... I just don't understand some things here. I can see that a lot of people earn money, having no knowledge about programming - just by installing WP and using themes and plugins.

    I want to earn a little money to help my parents and to have enough to buy few things for my other hobbies. I would really appreciate if somebody sends me in PM his/her skype (or other IM), so I can sort a few things in my mind. Thank you! :)

    most probably you have to get yourself some logic exercises . :) Ask yourself first of all WHY do you think peoples build websites ( any kind of - from small blogs with shitty pictures / retard posts about anything and everything ... to informative/wiki-type/tutorial sites and so on ... ) .

    Let me help you with a hint ... :) site's ( what you build or what you can build ) aren't mean to be '' localhost '' .

    Sorry, I don't have portfolio. But, you can give me some kind of task to test me.

    And it's a little bit hard for developers (not designers) to do make portfolio, since you can't see their work. Probably it's a little problem to not be good at design.

    I am thinking of building website for web masters - about security. I would make quality unique posts and examples... Do you think that I can get nice number of visitors to make money out of adsense?

    Yeah if you build non English sites perhaps, Google makes use of a grammar checker.

    Sounds a little bit like me, 5 years ago :)

    Well, you have different ways to make money

    1. Programming career
    Working and thinking veeery indeep about a good idea, which you can turn to a website that people like and share. For this, you have to be very creative. You can try also to look at what problems there are on the web, and turn that into an idea.

    Takes some time, but on your road you will learn a lot of more PHP.

    Look also what's already on the market. Like:
    - http://codecanyon.net
    etc.

    If you can already code things like that, go ahead and start! There are people who earn a lot of cash by selling on codecanyon. Think like 1 month work for a experienced coder, for $50,000 in cash spread around 3 months.

    If you like more site designing, get inspriation from Deviantart.com and sell here:
    http://themeforest.net

    For other projects:
    http://www.freelancer.com

    2. Websites ( SEO or not?! )
    If you would rather like to make your own website, find a topic that's hot and where you are interested, and start writing each and every day about different, related things.

    Before, you read the basics of SEO - so that you don't make mistakes, that you may regret later.

    OR you start like me when I was 3 years younger then you - Make a website about, in your case, Kroatian artists and put AdSense on it.

    This way, you have very less competition.

    Let me know, if you have further questions and good luck, on your venture ;)

    Just remember this:

    Traffic -> Site -> Offer -> $$
