Some people putter in their garden.
Others putter in their garage, their basement, their workshop or their studio.
They hone their skills and create fine pieces of art or craft.
I putter on my computer. I hone my skills and create web pages.
Try this approach and see if it satisfies creative needs you have.
Special for residents in the Denver area: I will be presenting
a short classroom version of the first three lessons from the
web building course, Feb. 21 in Denver.

This site was originally seen to be of interest mostly for retirees - I was told that young people won't listen to a white-haired guy like me. But ... HTML is HTML; now I have positioned the site to be for anyone who ...

For your needs, you might perhaps just go with Practical Windows course and be done.
On the other hand, if you want to accomplish website coding, perhaps you already know enough to jump in at the start of the Creating Websites course, skipping the Practical Windows course. Or you could try Creating Websites and then go back to Practical Windows if you find you weren't quite prepared.
Note: the second and third courses can be done using Apple Mac computers (or Linux or Unix or z/OS or others) - just use the appropriate plain text editor instead of Notepad.
So off you go, to one of these lesson tracks:
Practical Windows for Small Business [and Hobbies]
Creating Websites Using Notepad [or any other plain text editor]
Advanced Topics in Website Coding
Note: the videos themselves are available at no charge on YouTube
However, on the website you can get transcripts, additional commentary, and lab files
all for no extra charge.
If you prefer to use YouTube, the transcripts and lab write ups are available as kindle ebooks from Amazon for a charge ($2.99 per lesson). You can find the YouTube links and relevant ebooks here.
