Welcome to coding forums!

As to what to do next, it's hard to say unless you share what you've done so far (with a link, that is). How are your CSS skills?

I'd suggest getting comfortable with CSS, these days it is a necessity.

I am new myself (commerically) i found learning CSS an absolute must as it tackles and controls so many aspects of a site. It also makes the design of the site so much easier to manage. A good mag to subscribe to is .net which seems to have loads of tutorials on CSS, and i found they explain things alot better than any book.

I also am learning Java at the moment, not so much the webside of things but more the application side to help support the possiblities of Content Management Tools and other off line content.

Flash is another string to your bow, as you can add great looking animation and other funtions to your site. However Flash is difficult to get recognised in the search engines.

And finally get to grips with PHP, as this to me was the real gate way for real money earners. (I have not sold anything yet but the potential is there).

Ramble over.

Checked out your links, thanks. Looks like you already have an eye for design, so learning to style your pages with CSS will be something you'll really have fun with. Getting started is easy. CSS at the entry level is a piece of cake (the harder stuff comes later as your designs become more complex and you strive to make your pages look consistent over many different browser engines).

Although there are better tut sites, I like to recommend W3schools as a starting point for CSS. It's free, there's no signing up, and you can take a quiz to test your knowledge along the way.
