Do you have any recommended methods for learning? I did buy a book that I hope will help me with coding (basic knowledge)
The way I learn best is to physically be shown. I would be more than willing to pay someone to show me.
From my own IT consulting experience with frustrated small business owners (tech wise), the BEST way is to have someone sitting next to you and guiding you if you're coming from square one, as you already observed. In your case, I recommend partnering with someone who has a technical edge. Try networking through a local SBA outreach in your area. ...or even see if they have a seminar. Those are usually free and geared toward the absolute beginner.
To keep stabbing at the tech level, anything w3.org is also free and a great resource for learning the nitty-gritty coding / debugging side. Also "A List Apart," for design fundamentals.
