I’m a graphic design university student and web design has always interested me too. From a designers perspective, I don’t think web design really requires too much creative skill as a lot of it is to do with knowing how to do code and understanding the complexities of how a website flows. So, if you’re quite practical minded and have a grasp of computing, I say go for it! I think in some workplaces there is a designer who designs how it would look, and then a web developer who puts it all into place, and it sounds like you would fit perfectly into the latter.
I suggest reading books/forums/websites to read up on it and also using websites such as wordpress to try out your newly discovered CSS/html knowledge. If you find that your excited about constructing it and seeing it work, then it probably is a route you should go down. If you’re bored to death after giving it try, then probably not!
It is a great skill to have, everyone wants a website nowadays and people are willing to pay good money to have one done for them. As you have mentioned, its hard to motivate yourself to start, but once you get going it will pay off!
All the best,
