I've written a short article on Squidoo.com that explains some of the basics of WordPress and why I think it rocks.
The article has several good links to the various resources around the net, most of the "big players" that devote a lot of time and energy to the WP community.
Check it out if you get time and leave some feedback telling me what you think and if I should add anything.
Here's the link Why WordPress Rocks
PS - I'm not posting this to get "google juice" or anything like that, just thought people may want to check it out.
