hi, I have voted for your answer as best answer. Please advise me. I'm just starting learning HTML CSS in order to change my career. How about you? How this site has helped you so far? Are you a professional? What do you do for living?

Regards! sammy

Thank you so much for voting!! I am also in the early stages of learning, watching as many videos as I can, and getting books too, on the side, also switching careers. I'm in between jobs so I am not professional but maybe one day. One thing I'm doing is looking at jobs in my area, seeing the kinds of qualifications they want, and then looking those things up in the Treehouse library. There's a lot of learning to do, and this site has been helpful for sure.
