I built my own page a while ago and discovered WordPress recently. I saw that wordpress made it easy to manage many articles, handle comments, and included a blog which I wanted so I realized it would be crazy to code that all myself. So I wrapped my entire site around WordPress using my own theme and a custom plugin.
I'm really happy with how well it works and that I can fully manage it from any Internet connection instead of just my development machine.
Please let me know what you think:
