I am also a lobbyist for giving it your own try. Creating your own web site is not that difficult any more with excellent software available. I used Serif Webplus to do mine. I make occasional changes in content and also have a class schedule on my site which I update constantly.
I believe that changes to a web site keep the interest in the site up, and it is so much easier to quickly sit down and do it yourself.
Either way you go: I wish you good luck.
