Hi! I’m Joe Casabona
Teaching by Doing
I started my career almost 20 years ago as a freelance web developer before realizing my true passion, which is sharing my years of knowledge about website development, podcasting and course creation with other business owners, freelancers and entrepreneurs in need. I’ve been told I have a gift for breaking down concepts that scare people into bite-sized, approachable pieces of information they can implement in a matter of days.ppz
My career trajectory includes 20+ years experience building websites, 16+ years using WordPress, 11+ years teaching at the college level, 7+ years podcasting, plus I am the author of four books, including my latest: HTML and CSS: Visual QuickStart Guide.
Educator & Family Man
When I’m not creating courses for LinkedIn Learning, or writing books, you can find me spending time with my family, enjoying baseball (go Yankees!), or talking too much about Star Wars. I also really like cigars.
As for what I do professionally, here’s the gist: I create online courses at Creator Courses and for LinkedIn Learning, host a podcast called How I Built It, and have been making websites for 20 years.
Fun Fact: In another life, I’d probably be an animator.
About the Blog
I guess the official start of this thing was in 2002, when I had some space on Geocitiesand was just starting out in the web dev world. I was in high school, so really it was more like a LiveJournal, filled with teen angst. I mean, you know how high school is. Or maybe you don’t. It’s cool.
Since then it’s evolved from a fake LJ to a place of substance. I usually talk tech, freelancing, and whatever else piques my interest. I’m always up for a discussion, so feel free to add in your two cents anytime you want.
