Learn How To Manage Your Own Website Using Treehouse

Managing a website can be frustrating if you don’t do it for a living…

Usually, though, that’s because you’re not equipped with the right tools to whip things into shape!

Some people are inclined to learn enough to manage their own website.  Are you one of those people?  There are a lot of options when you’re looking to learn how to code.  Which one is right for you?

I’m here to tell you that Treehouse is amazing.  It’s intuitive.  It’s expansive.  Your first month is free when you click super awesome link below.  Need I say more?

How does Treehouse work?

Treehouse works on tracks.  You pick a track (like html) and it starts you off right where you need to be.  You learn with videos, quizes, and challenges.  There are over 100 courses in their library to help you get started.  You can filter them by topic, search them, or just see what is new.

They also provide achievements and a points system, which turns it into a bit of a game… but coding is already fun, why would you need points? (Just kidding.  It’s only fun for some of us.)

The other advantage is that you can learn as you go, and you can access the courses from anywhere with an internet connection.  It’s even available on mobile devices.

Managing your website with your new skills…

Learning a bit more about your website can help you avoid costly invoices when you need to hire a web developer to fix what’s wrong.  This is the perfect solution for people that are technically inclined and have the time to learn how to do basic maintenance on a website.

Think about it like a car.  You can either pay a mechanic to change your oil, or you can learn to do it on your own.  The advantages and disadvantages are basically the same (except for the dirty oil on your hands part).

Here’s a handy link if you want to get started and check it out!
