Do you feel you need to learn to code to blog?
Coding can be challenging.
I use coding and I’m not versed in programming at all.
I work with codes when I install the link for my linky parties.
I also work with codes when I put my blog post in HTML text.

The Best Way to Start Learning Programming for Beginners
by Toufique Ahmed
Programming is a skill that is needed by many industries nowadays. This is why many people are interested in starting to learn to program. However, programming is not an easy thing to learn, not to mention that there are so many programming languages to master out there. Even though it is going to be challenging, it is highly possible for a complete beginner to learn to program. To help you pick up this skill more effectively, here are some tips to help you.
Start with An Easy Programming Language
The first thing you need to do is to decide which programming language you want to learn first. Yes, if you want to have a career as a professional programmer, you must master various languages. However, learning too many languages at once will overwhelm you.
So, make sure to start with one language and don’t forget to pick something easy. Python can be a nice option for beginners. It is easy to read, has thousands of libraries and also can be used to build a prototype. If you learn the basic with this language, it will be easier to learn more difficult languages in the future.
Find Good Learning Resources
When it comes to learning programming, it is best to take classes so that you can have someone to guide you. You also can ask any questions to your tutor or teacher anytime you want. But if you prefer to self-learn, it is certainly possible too.
Just make sure you find good learning resources. You can buy or borrow some books. Moreover, you actually can also find many excellent learning resources online. If you are planning to open your own business with your new programming skill, consider taking additional online classes on the economy or business and management.
Expect to Make Plenty of Mistakes
As someone who touches programming language for the first time, don’t be afraid to make mistakes. As a matter of fact, you will make plenty of mistakes. Programming is not easy and even the slightest error can mess up your whole work. So, take this time to learn and absorb everything.
Explore everything about the language you are learning including the tricky parts. Learning from your mistakes will help you master the programming language of your choice. If you find some roadblocks, go online and find more resources to learn or examples you can follow. Programming needs patience and persistence so as long as you don’t give up, you definitely can pick up this skill faster.
Keep Enriching Yourself with New Programming Languages
The world of programming is so vast and new things are invented on daily basis. So, don’t stop learning if you have mastered one programming language. Go learn the other languages, but this time, increase the stake and the challenge by learning something more difficult.
After learning to program for quite some time, you can consider learning C. (C is a high-level and general-purpose programming language, some people feel the best programming language to learn). It is widely used by reputable corporations to develop their programs. So, if you know how to program with C, you definitely will have a deeper understanding of computers and create programs that will be found useful by many people.
