After months of contemplating coding my own blog site, I managed to get together a nice CI (codeigniter) + doctrine bundle to get started, but got lazy and so I never got past finishing the header.
If it wasn’t for work, I probably wouldn’t have bothered with wordpress either. But here I am, in a situation where I needed to get familiar with the open source app. So far my impressions have been great. Had I had known such app existed, I probably would have started using it a long time ago.
