First off, thanks to all the people that post on these forums. This site seems to have a lot of helpful people compared to other ones. Hoping not to get too flamed for asking such a newbie question here it goes.
I'm new here and have been trying to get into theses games for the last year or so. I have tried to build my own websites a few times and just fail in the end. I have tried dreamweaver and joomla, but just cant seem to wrap my head around it. Do any of you have any suggestions for building a website with a forum. I'm looking to add google adsense as well as afiliate marketing if possible. I'm looking to build a few, would it be worth paying someone to do it? Or is there any real simplified way to do what I want by myself?
Thanks in advance and look forward to your responses.
