Has anyone built a very large website on there own? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
When I went to PHP I had already passed AutoIt and was becoming skilled in VB.NET. PHP after that was way too easy. It took me a few days also but I am still improving my skills in PHP 6 years later. Then again I taught myself everything I know. Nowadays I do backend coding for websites and Windows applications with C#.NET 4.0, nothing professionally. I have made over 6 Windows applications and have a accumulated over 10k downloads. I receive 1-5k pageviews to www.logicpwn.com every month, depending on what I had been pushing on popular sites and file hosts.

I've written message boards and all sorts over the years, but my current project is definitely my most ambitious to date.

I created a website from scratch, and within a year it had 500k unique visitors / 4 million page views every month. It had a forum, a video database where video prodivers could post their creation, people could rate them, write reviews and so on... Your typical community site (the site was own-age.com a gaming video site). I had learned everything from the internet and applied it on the site. It took a rediculous amount of time to market, code, performance tune, moderate, recruit admins and mods, promote. But it gave me a very nice career in IT without having to go to college and I think a great story. I'm leaving a lot out about the site, but there was a ton of features on the site! Approx 50 dynamic pages in total, oh and this was around the 2002-2003 timeframe

I wanted to create a blog where I posted several different things, and then slowly evolve from there.
I lost interest the day I started.

But well, the idea I have involves a lot of uploading, and my net totally sucks at that. I sometimes think "What if I had a better internet?" Probably even if I had a better internet I'd be damn lazy to do it.
