    If you're looking for general steps to be a freelancer (or for any job), you're doing it wrong.

    If you don't know how to build a website, you won't be able to get a job building websites.

    in other words, you need to rethink the entire premise of your question.

    What are you passionate about, like something you really enjoy? Music, art, science, nature, etc. If programming (web development) is your passion, you would have already learned some programming languages by now and you would have already used Google to find out what websites (and scripting) is all about. You would have done those things because you "had to do it". You could not stop yourself ... that's what I mean by passion. You're young, so you're feeling your way around ... I understand that.

    I always knew I wanted to get into electronics. By the time I was your age, I already had people helping me work on stuff, tearing things apart, learning about it. People I didn't even know would connect me with other people who would give me electronic parts for free. Now I'm 56, so I have some wisdom. Every once in a while, someone comes up to me and says, "I know a 14 year old kid that is interested in electronics". So I'm now the "other people" that gathers a box of electronic parts and gives it away.

    Everything in life is about connections. Who you know, who you seek out, the people around you. Whatever your passion is, whatever you really want to do, there are always people willing to help you out for free. There are people who will sacrifice their time, talents, knowledge, and sometimes financial assistance to teach you whatever you need to know. But you have to really crave it, live it, and prove to them that you have the natural talent and passion to do the work.

    If making websites (development and design) is your passion, you need to first use Google to do some research, and then make connections to people in the field of making websites. By starting this thread, you are reaching out to make connections. That's a good thing. Those of us here who are old and have wisdom will do our best to steer you away from the website careers. That's our way of making you prove that you cannot do anything else, proving that it really is your passion.

    That whole post of mine sounds like an old man lecturing you about life. Not my intention, but the point is, you should put your time and effort into something you "have to do". Something you will do no matter what anyone else says.

    That's all I have to say about what Max said.
