    Just take a look at the people's profiles in this forum. Many people use it "successfully" for their own needs.

    What's your definition of "successfully"? And what do you want it to do?

    Thanks http://scribbles.indivibes.net/ this looks great!
    I can see that "SUCCESSFULLY" can be a little misleading.

    I would like to see a variety of URLs using WordPress in different ways with different designs and maybe even using Adsense.

    Come on...let the world see your work. Please!

    Hum... you could try my blog (http://blog.permagnus.com/).

    The blog has utilized some AJAX functionality such as comments and live search (plus extended archive). Adsense included.

    I'm using K2 theme on that site, FYI.

    Yes this is a shameless action... but the man wants it :)

    Oh pick me! http://www.theblog.jacksonboyle.com

    And have a look at the site menu - I run a couple of other wordpresses for other stuff.

    (I may regret this when I sober up.)

    Three different themes, two with adsense, one with Gallery2
    (the third was recently changed so no ads added yet)

    Shameless simply means: "Feeling no shame; impervious to disgrace."

    If you are proud of your work and other people want to see and admire your work then one should be shameless and proud of it.

    I started a humorous English/Spanish bilingual BLOG.

    http://www.gozatelo.com/

    Gozatelo can mean "enjoy it" or "enjoy yourself" in English.

    I have severals blog using it "successfully" (IMHO).
    MacManx kindly pointed to Simple Thoughts Blog - blog.taragana.com above. It uses a custom theme.

    > and has a great or cool layout
    The layout is dependent on the theme used.

    Few of my blogs with their themes are:
    http://pet.taragana.net/ Using (plain-jane) default Kubrick layout
    http://hotjobs.taragana.com/ Using Gila Theme (modified)
    http://stemcell.taragana.net/ Using Greyed Theme (slightly Modified)

    I know several A-List (whatever that means) bloggers who switched to WordPress.

    You should start with default theme (characterized by big blue blob in the middle ;) ), then experiment with others.

    Not all themes are same, nor are syntactically (XHTML spec wise) correct. You should experiment a lot before you adopt one or stick with Kubrick or its variants like LiewCF's version with three column.

    Personally I spent quite sometime with different available themes before I designed the Simple Thoughts theme.

    One of my intern recently spent couple of days evaluating several themes. At the end I decided to rollout a new version of my theme which will be applied to all of the above blogs. The point is if you want to have it your way, you probably have to design your own theme in the end.

    Coolness is a personal factor. What is cool may not be usable in your scheme of things. For example I found Crimson Milk to be a cool theme. However I couldn't use it for several reasons.

    You may want to check AdSense terms of service. Chitika is context sensitive. Using it with AdSense on the same page is probably violating AdSense TOS.

    I am totally impressed to say the least! Soooo many high
    Google PR's.

    Macmanx how do you keep so many high quality blogs updated? Do you use some kind of special software?

    Angsuman,
    Thanks for the information. I love the "Gila Theme".

    Have you tried the "Prosimii Theme"?

    Personally I haven't. I will check with my staff and let you know. She is writing up a review of several themes and her views on them.

    "Macmanx how do you keep so many high quality blogs updated? Do you use some kind of special software?"

    Having been a reader of many of those blogs for a while, I know how he does it.
    First he cloned himself, but something went wrong with the process, and instead of perfect copies, he eneded up with a set where each one was unique. He then sent them to live in various parts of the world, telling them "Go forth and blog." And so they did. And on the either day, he rested.

    All right, I'll bite... http://blog.poeticfolly.com is my techy site...

  28. Macmanx how do you keep so many high quality blogs updated? Do you use some kind of special software?

    Actually, only http://www.macmanx.com/blog/ is mine. The rest are daily reads from my blogroll.

    If you mean to ask how do I stay up to date and read each of them daily, I use a combination of RSSOwl, Bloglines, and Newsgator.
