For example, I own a domain name and I'm working on getting content. But I'm trying to choose between building and deploying custom software (I'm a software engineer by education), what off-the-shelf software is appropriate (and trying to find more options given a few samples of software that are close to what I want), and best practices for running a personal website (and by best practices, I mean specific question on if I should do X as opposed to Y or if X would have some benefit).
Are questions that I might have on these topics be suitable here? I'm by no means a professional webmaster, but I would like to maintain my own web presence. It seems like this site might be a closer fit to my needs than Super User, but I'm not entirely sure which of my questions are in scope and which ones aren't.
