Im a bit weary of get inundated in all the nitty gritty coding details, frameworks and tech to be constantly up to date with and not have hour for what I really like – writing. I’ve heard that being good at only basic HTML+ CSS and a CMS like WordPress or even learning PHP would be great and some folks are making a living of those without ever touching Javascript, but I’m unsure if outside of online freelancing that would help me be more employable by a digital marketing company or such.

On the other hand I also have the option of Video Editing, which, since I also write fiction and screenplays sometimes, could be a technically simpler skillset is comparable to coding, and still provide a good value for creating video sales letters, editing ads etc.

Am I stretching myself too much? I know that only Digital Marketing and Copywriting are by themselves a handful already, but there’s this part of me that feels that adding some “hands-on” technical skill would increase my chances of both freelancing and IRL chores.

Thank you for your help!
