Hello to you too
That's not true. Even people that are visual and would design before coding need to do something first: get the content and plan.
The system you follow to create a website depends on various factors and that includes how you are but also the type and size of the site and your goals and how many visitors you want that site to have.
Good planning, good organization of the content and a good marketing strategy will make the site rise and these points are decided even before thinking about designing.
A small fraction of that marketing strategy is SEO and because your content will be affect your marketing strategy, very often sites are coded before even they're design.
Also, before you design (and while you're at it) there's another aspect to take into consideration: User Experience. And that includes usability of the site and accessibility
For all of these reasons, it is rare to see that a extremely successful site is first design and then coded.
I think I just did
SP books do cover almost all the basics but I made add books specifically planned for usability. "Don't make me think" is a classic that is still valid even today.
In your site, text is text, it is not an image
Thanks. I'm thankfull to myself too
