  Old  Newbies! Here's a simple way to start learning HTML & CSS

I've been on this forum for years (this is where I really started freelancing) and I've always seen questions about how to get started with HTML and CSS in multiple threads, so I thought I'd tell you all about Codecademy. This website is a helpful place for learning code via short exercises. It's interactive and it helps you learn without having to read a book. The best part is that you don't need any software to get started, everything is done on the website.

I've compiled a list of simple exercises that, to the best of my ability, are in correct order as to how you'd typically learn the basics of HTML and CSS:

- HTML: Fundamentals
- More with HTML
- CSS: Coding with Style
- My First Webpage
- Intro to CSS Positioning
- Advanced CSS positioning
- Build a Website

Do note that you won't learn everything from these simple tutorials, but they might help break the wall between you and beginning to code websites.

I hope this helps, and please leave any questions below.
