If you need opinions to write your own script, chances are you do not need to write your own script. There are plenty of available scripts out there that can do just about anything.. blogging, cms, gallery. You have no reason to write your own.

Plugins and themes are another story.

I know this is old thread and you make your mind for writing your own script, but its catch my eye.
I just wonder do you think to write for yourself or for public.

Generally there is lots existing platforms you can choose and use with lots of themes and plugins, some of them free some paid.
Even there is lot of tutorials how to install, use or develop your own themes and plugins.

But if think that you can write good secure lightweight script go for it. just I think it wil take you lot of time.

That is my opinion.

Find some similar open source script, add better code as per your requirement and make it as you like.
if no similar codes are available than yes start from zero.

If you have the skills and knowledge to do it yourself then that would be the preferred choice, or at least it would be for me if I had the ability to do it myself.

If you make your own script then everything can be custom done for your exact needs, likes and preferences. You also could possibly make it a better performing option since you wouldn't need a lot of the things that an existing script would come with.

I say that if someone has the skills to create their own they they should go for it. :thumb:

I do agree with Gecko. If you are creative enough for it, why not? You could save more money if you're going to do it by yourself but don't expect that you're also going to save some time. If you're going to be hands-on about it, I think you can achieve the exact thing that you want and need. You could ask for some expert's opinions or tips though as long as you don't copy them exactly. Just my two cents, my friend.

I think any which way will do for as long as your content has the all the qualities it needs to be recognized in a certain topic or story. In this industry everybody strives to attain perfection in all forms of writing, however not everyone gets the chance to really stand out simply because instead of focusing on the content or the story itself, they are more concentrating on how to make it look pleasing or appealing thus putting content as less of a priority.

If you have the capacity to write your own script you can do it. It is better to be original and unique. You can be more attractive to costumers when you are doing your original thing. Who knows you are better and even excellent of doing an original script. You better create your own.

Since you are using Content Management System (CMS), if there's a feature that you want to add in your website, you have to look for available plugins first. Using plugins makes your development faster and easier. But if the feature that you want for your website could not be done using plugins, having a knowledge in scripting is a great advantage. You can create your on script for the functionality that you want. And you create also create plugins that you can distribute that could become a source of income.
