Yes, I built my blog myself in WP. Biggest issue for me is that it is 3 blogs in one site so I had to use categories and it required code for various things to do with that, such as excluding posts from the homepage on two categories. Research time on a theme and plugins was huge, too. I’ve got some functionality on the blog that’s pushing WP to it’s limits without getting heavy with coding. Also, one big lesson (that I’m still trying to remember) if you install caching software to speed the site up, turn it off while developing or you’ll be served old pages and wonder why your changes are not taking effect. Wow that one’s a time killer.
