The Technical Side of Blogging

As I have said before, my technical skills are not the greatest. I have no idea how to design a blog, let alone deal with complexities such as coding. When it comes down to it, I am a writer and that is pretty much what I do. For everything technical, I have to farm out the work to one of my contractors; which is not a huge deal, I suppose. But with that being said, it does cost money, and waiting for them to do the work is not always the easiest thing to do.

Leo over at the Idiot Affiliate recently gave me a plug entitled, “Learn Freelance Writing and Blogging with Chris Blogging.” I was quite happy to see this as I am always interested in spreading my knowledge, and of course, learning from others in the process. But in the last paragraph of his post, I read something that really caught my eye.

“On a side note, I encourage Chris to pick up that technical torch and run with it for awhile.  It isn’t as hard as you think it is!”

This got me thinking; maybe he is right? All this time I have been concentrating on writing, but never taking the time to learn the technical side of blogging.

So my question is, how can I learn about design, coding, and all that other good stuff? Again, since I have no idea what this is all about, I really don’t know where to start.

Any suggestions would be great. After all, if I am going to continue to grow this blog, doing some design work and adding new features is a must.

Let me know how you developed your technical skills. Hopefully this is something that I can work on in the near future!
