I’m not suggesting you start a journey to becoming an expert web designer/developer here, but rather just suggesting that you learn some of the basics which go into the making of what is essentially a website in the blog through which you publish your content. Trust me, a basic understanding of web design principles will go a long way in making it easier for you to understand a little bit more of the technical side of what goes into the making, operation and maintenance of your blog, some knowledge which could very well come in very handy in saving you some costs whenever you might need to make decisions about the direction in which to take your blog as it grows.
Developers and even more so the technical support staff tend to take advantage of bloggers who are clueless about the technical side of things, so the support you subsequently have to pay for in making minor changes and updates could go on to cost you quite a bit of money. So it’s worth learning some basics, even if you really just seek to get a fundamental overview type understanding. You need to know what someone is talking about when they refer to the likes of some code which needs to be embedded and the likes.
HTML stands for Hypertext Mark-Up Language and it forms the basic structure of a website. Really, all you need to do is pick up a web design book (it can even be an e-book) and just read through it like you were reading a novel. You’ll just learn the basic structure of how web page is marked up and some of the technical applications which form part of adding features to your blog will make a bit more sense to you.
