A Place to start

I have been working on websites for a while, however I have been just fumbling my way through them not really sure what I was doing. I want to learn everything up here, but not sure what direction to take, should I go through each and everything on here starting with web design all the way to app development and should I go on every deep dive in the beginning or come back to them after I have finished a section like web designer or web developer? How much of a Understanding do I need to go from HTML to CSS to Java Script and so on? Are the deep dives needed in the beginning or can I keep going? I am just so over whelmed because I would like to learn it all but need a bit of help on how to focus in here.....

I can't answer all your questions, but I'll take one. I would start with the Build a Simple Website project. Then I'd tackle the CSS Foundations deep dive. After that, I would do the adaptive and responsive design badges. I'm assuming you know how to open/close tags and some of the basics. That seems the most efficient(for me at least.) :)

Learning adventures here on Treehouse are designed to answer just these sorts of questions. I'd suggest you follow along with the Become a Web Designer learning adventure.

Side note - I am in the exact same position as you . I can make a ok website, I can edit templates fine and make my way around web designing.

The course James suggested is amazing - It's very in depth and teaches you the ins an outs of everything. I love it. I would definitely suggesting taking that course too (since it sounds like were in the same place! )
