i have some exciting news to share! i'm going back to school! not REAL school, i guess, but taking web design classes.
i know someone who now has a design business who learned web design through emory's continuing education program. at the end of approximately 8 months, i should have a certificate in web design, and i think the track i'm going to specialize in is e-commerce. with my background in selling on etsy, and knowing that i'd love to have my own shop and be able to design with my own aesthetic, i think i'd like to stick to the shop-side of web design, and help other people create their e-commerce sites. i also want to learn some wordpress and do some blog design. final cost will be about $5000, which is a big chunk of change, but about $25,000 less than getting an associates degree in web design online. it also means i will be going to class all day on saturdays for a while, but i can suck it up and deal.
