I've been tasked with developing a blog for my company. It's a fun project and I'm looking forward to getting it up and running. From what I can tell, wordpress and all its plugins will allow me to do everything we want.
I'm not skilled enough to do it myself but luckily I have a very experienced and talented IT person to help. However, I need to set some realistic deadlines with her and want to educate myself before we start the process.
Can anyone give me a general idea of how long it would take to start a wordpress blog and add a dozen or so plugins? I've managed blog content before so this schedule would only apply to the startup. Maybe the answer to this is "it depends". In which case I'm happy to provide more details once I know what questions I should ask to get a better answer.
What happens to the timeline if we want to design our own theme? Could a designer familiar with Dreamweaver build a theme?
Sorry if these are dumb questions. I'm trying to educate myself!
