This website was completely built from scratch using a web framework called Ruby on Rails. Doing it this way was a much better decision because it gives me everything I need without the bloat of WordPress add-ons. Building the website myself gives me complete control over how I get to use the site. I'd recommend this process to anyone needing a very specific purpose met. The website can be as big or small as you'd like because Ruby on Rails makes it very easy to build and iterate quickly on ideas.
I built this website for a local church. They needed a way to educate and help kids learn about educational options and internships they had available. This website wanted to stand out so I created a fun theme that connects with people viewing it. It was a great experience and I look forward to building more websites for them.
My very own blog was the first website I ever made. I learned how hosting websites worked, what search engine optimization meant, and how vast the choice of themes are for WordPress websites. Overall, it was a positive experience because I found some great resources to guide me along the way. That was over two years ago now. I've learned a lot more since then and can tell you I've refined the process a lot. Wordpress is an amazing option for people who just need to manage content and I'd highly recommend it.
