I am looking for some guidance on how I would go about creating my blog from scratch. I have installed WordPress and even installed a theme I like but, I really want to create my own from the ground up. I can work my way through the xhtml and css, but I will stay away from starting from scratch if I need to mess with the php files.
I see people like http://www.stevepsharpe.co.uk uses WordPress but has his own created theme, can some give me some steps to beginning this sort of process?
Thank you for any help you can provide.
