So ever since a few days ago when my father’s house started leaking during a bad rain and both me and him exclaimed having enough, I decided to go back to powering through the FCC curriculum and finish out my last three projects. After I finish the five web development projects and pretty-up the design of them, I will have not only made five websites, but will have begun a web developer portfolio, and I want to make it stand out. However, after reading one topic on the subject, I kind of question if that will even be close to enough to begin working at least as a freelancer.
I kind of enjoy coding, but I don’t have a strong passion for web design. On top of that, I hear the field is saturated and competitive now. I’m okay with that, as I mostly just want to use web design as a way to make money so I can move someplace with more job opportunities in welding or programming, or even go back to trade school. I would love to just freelance online and travel, but I really need to buckle down somewhere and work on paying back my debts for five years or so before I can be truly free.
What do you think?
