Decided to use WordPress for a couple reasons. One, since so many people use it, I knew it was something I should learn. If I am going to help other people troubleshoot issues with their WordPress sites, I’m going to need to know this software inside-out. The second reason was to quickly get a new site up and running. The second reason is the one I’m questioning. I am used to building sites from the ground up using my own code. I thought this might be faster, but I’m finding that learning the intricacies of WordPress and figuring out how to customize someone else’s theme is very time consuming. I’m going to stick with it, though. Hopefully, once I have it mastered, customizing site designs in WordPress will be an easier process.
