Is It Really That Hard?

Tala
As a regular on one specific webmaster board, and a regular lurker on many others, I get to see some odd things. I also get to see some really stupid things. Lately, it seems that there has been a rash of the same strange thing time and again.

Folks, I hate to break it to you, but if you want to get into the adult webmastering field, you are going to have to have one of the following: a working knowledge of HTML (at least) or enough capital to be able to hire someone with design experience.

I know, I know, this is old news, but apparently it's not as old as we may have thought. Maybe I'm the only one who has noticed the re-emergence of this trend, but with seemingly every other person out there needing or wanting cheap/free HTML help, wouldn't it be easier if you could just go somewhere to look up the problem you're having and find out how to fix it?

Oh wait. There is.

Let me throw you some good URLs that will assist you with your HTML. These sites cover everything from the very basics, (i.e., "What's a tag?"), to the advanced, (i.e., "How do I get my tables to come out even?"). This is all stuff that I believe everyone should know, no matter what. Granted that the days of just throwing an HTML page up there and getting money for it are long gone, but knowing HTML is the foundation for learning other things that you can use to enhance your pages, thus making them more interesting, which will bring about more money.

Dave's HTML Tutorial can take you from nothing to guru. Not only does Dave walk you through HTML, he also gives tips on FTP, traffic generation, (mainstream, but good hints for the rest of us if we know where and how to apply them), CSS and javascript. There is absolutely no way you want to miss this. Bookmark it.

HTML Goodies is another great resource to bookmark. Extensive help with HTML along with some interesting suggestions that will help spice up your less-than-professional page. This one's a good mainstream aid that can easily be turned into the best adult help page ever…with a little imagination on your part.

HTML Code Tutorial is probably the easiest site for tutorials in terms of navigation. This easy-to-follow site gives you a damn good, fast down and dirty reference for HTML. This one is good for bookmarking just to have the reference guide at your fingertips.

Now the three links above will not the end-all cure-all for those of you who have never lifted a finger to the coding keyboard. But it will be a good start, and once you grasp the basics, you can learn the more difficult languages such as JavaScript, PHP, and XML.

Some of you are asking, "If I can get someone else to build me a site, why do I need to bother learning HTML?" Fair enough question. A working knowledge of HTML will help in case something doesn't look right to you. You can go into anyone's plain HTML code and see how they have assembled their page. By knowing how it works, you'll also learn about what it can and cant' do. You might also end up finding it to be interesting and fun to put things together by yourself. It becomes addictive if you're not careful.

And if nothing else, you will be able to keep things together and functioning if your well-paid designer decides he's done with you and either quits or skips out on you. It does happen from time to time, and while there are a great many designers out there, the better ones are generally very busy and may not be available immediately to help you maintain your site. Be able to do it yourself, even if only on a rudimentary basis. It's never good to be completely dependant on someone else for anything.

One last note before I close this up. Please, please, please, PLEASE refrain from using the embed tag in your pages. I don't want to hear a bad midi when I open the page. If I wanted to hear bad music, I'd rent a porno.

Take care of yourselves! ~ Tala
