My goal was to scratch the surface with simple gaming site, then expand with more functionality and features. I have configured WordPress in the pass, but stop there because my HTML and CSS skills were weak at the time. So I finally came back and re-taught myself using HTML5 + CSS3 standards. Now I lack creativity. I will re-visit WordPress sometime this week because from the comments I have seen that it can help maintain and create content faster which leaves me more room to be creative.
Again thank you all for your input. Be sure to check in to see the improvements I have made.
