Hi everyone, first poster here. Just wanted to see if I could get a grain of advice from someone more experienced.

I am a full time student and working too so my free time is limited. I've been exposed to alot of coding for some time now so technically I'm pretty sure I can manage. I have a question about launching a site though.

I've read how content is one of the most important things for a website, and my question is basically should I just get it out there and update it while I go (because of limited free time), or build some good content first then "launch" it.

Once again i'm pretty much a newb at maintaining a long term site so I hope my question kinda makes sense..

O dude, welcome and great move to come here. Get it out there, update as you go. Read here and get a feel for 'the bad ways' to develop. Stay clear of that, create your content and upload. Focus on the core basics: good htaccess, obfuscate your email code early on, these are the beginnings, then add content freely. Stay with clean code and a file structure ready to grow for five or ten years. How exciting for you. Go dude81.

Go live when you have sufficient content to make people want to come back later then keep adding.
