W/S: CODE I got a little off track from my original intention, and it's amazing!

So, I had started with the intention of going deep into SEO as much as I can. I went through courses, I built a blog, I experiment with different keywords and tools of SEO, which led me to the nitty gritty details of web designing. I know this is way off track from what I wanted to do(SEO), but I stumbled upon the website forum.freecodecamp.org when I was studying about HTML and CSS, which was a turning point. Now I know I don't think this was the right thing to do, but I switched paths from SEO to WEB-DEV. Now I know it might take years to become good at various languages, but I'm ready to take it on. I took this switch because I thought this is a skill that isn't going anywhere in the future. I may or may not be able to build a business, but at least I'd have the skills to build my own website or help someone with the same. I built my blog with wordpress, and didn't feel satisfying. I felt like I should have more control over the source of the blog. So, I know it may not be the right thing to do, or the right reason to switch lanes, but I have started going deeper into WEBDEV. I'm also writing one post per week on my blog,while studying JS and CSS.

While bespoke solutions can be attractive, there is merit in not "reinventing the wheel" unless you really have to. FreeCodeCamp's forum isnt built from scratch, and why should it be?
