When I built my main site, I did it using Frontpage and, later, with Expressions Web - probably the worst tools ever invented. They have both caused me all manner of difficulties over the years.

How I wish I had tried Wordpress sooner!
For those starting out, I would recommend the 2010 Weaver Theme - it's a brilliant theme that can pretty-much give you any look and feel you want. I managed to get the exact look of the rest of my site by using it.
And I am simply bowled over by the Plugins that are available. In the past, if I wanted to add a feature to my site, I would have to spend ages on Google looking for a script, and then go through a learning curve to get it running. But with Wordpress Plugins, I have added some fantastic functionality with a few clicks.
