im making a site about my favourite TV programme and i want to make a site with a daily updated review of an episode plus maybee a poll or two on it plus the ability for friends to comment, I was wondering since i dont want to mess around downloading CMSes or updating it manually day by day. Should i bother making my own CMS? i have the time and skills but i want to know is it worth it?
Only you can answer that question, since it all depends on is it worth it to you? If I were you (and I am -- most definately -- not) I would simply install a blogging tool (such as Wordpress) and go at it.
The question is, are you creating the site so you can develop a CMS for it, or the other way around?
