I'm an English guy living in the French Alps and I've put together a new photography blog and portfolio site for my photography. It's using WordPress 2.9 with a Pacifica theme from Themeforest and the WPML Multilingual CMS plugin which allows me to create content in French and English.
WordPress is simple to use and it's easy to update the site. I like the theme as I feel it has a great visual impact. I'm living in France so the site needs to be French first and English second. The WPML plugin allows me to do that.
