Initially, I thought that being a web developer is the easiest thing in the world. All you have to do is create an interesting website, pay to put it online, and work one week per year. Simple right?
Unfortunately, that is not how the system works at all.
First and foremost, you have to write a blog everyday and promote your website to make sure you have a steady amount of visitors throughout. I never really believed that I could write a single decent blog entry in my life.
Here we are and so far I feel like I am doing a good job. And that is what I love about my job. It pushes me to do things that I never would have thought that I could have done.
The important technique that I am using in being a web developer is to wait for a problem before solving it. Had I anticipated that I am required to do something more than working one week per year, I wouldn't have launched my website yet up to now. The key is not being paranoid, In handling a business like this, one must solve problems one by one. Slowly but surely as they say.
Then, when people comment on your blog (shenanigans), you have to be able to engage with them friendly.
The list can go on and on. The point is to promote your website as much as you can.
Hopefully, my website will become popular and become a successful web developer.
For now, let me know what you think and we can discuss them on the comments below.
