In a relatively short space of time, WordPress has evolved into the perfect blogging tool for the experienced web user, and even for the web novice. It is so good, in fact, that I can no longer refer to my hand-rolled tool as a content management system. I would be too embarrassed.
So why don't I use WordPress? I'm certainly tempted. It offers absolutely everything I could possibly need, and its architecture would allow me to customize it in dozens of different ways if I wanted to. Using it, however, would take away the primary reason for me inhabiting the World Wide Web in the first place - because I love to code my own stuff. I get a thrill out of it.
