I recently found WordPress, and loving it as much as I do, made it the front to my site. My site is basically a blog that focuses on a little bit of everything: technology, science, politics, culture, the internet, etc. I've already written some essay-style articles, and try to add content on a daily basis.
I've also got some photos up on my site using the excellent PhotoStack.
I also use WordPress on the page for my coding group's website, http://www.apeshell.net.
Check it out, read it if you like it, and maybe you'll come back to it in the future.
BTW, I love this forum.
