Just wanted to say that I absolutely love WP. I'm actually not a newbie to it, but I've never posted in these forums until 2 days ago or so & this is my first time using it for a main site. I was actually using Textpattern before, but it turned out that I needed to add all kinds of plugins JUST to get [most of] the features that WP already has in. Too much of a hassle for someone who needs to jump start their site right away.
The forums have also been really helpful. Any time I had a problem, I would just do a search & it'd come up. Problem solved!
I look forward to interacting with other WP users. =)
