I guess I could hire some help, what do you recommend?????????????
and how much should I pay for ocassional help???????
I would honestly say that you need to look and fully plan what you need not just list it because a helper would need that to get started fully. However if you can learn php and mysql fast then it may just be better and more economical to learn it yourself and complete the project yourself.
Getting someone else in to help is all well and good but it is difficult sometimes especially if you disagree on something at the end of the day if you decide to get someone make sure that you know you can work well with them so there won't be any hiccups.
