I'm in the process of finishing up a major book about building business relationships on the Internet, and we have a chapter in it on blogging. We talk about the different options: 1) hosted services (Blogger, LiveJournal), blog software (like w.bloggar or Radio) to author for use on a hosted service, and running your own software (MovableType, WordPress).
I have my own little story about WordPress in there now, but I'd rather highlight someone else than myself. What I need is someone who is using WordPress on your own server who can honestly say something to the effect of the following:
"This option is not as difficult as it may sound. Scott Allen used WordPress to create the OnlineBusinessNetworks.com blog. He had absolutely no prior knowledge of the system, or of the programming language it was written in, and just an intermediate-level knowledge of web design. He installed WordPress and had it operational in less than ten minutes; within two hours, he had it fully configured and integrated into the existing website."
Essentially, I need a testimonial about WordPress from a non-techie. The other requirements are that your blog MUST be business-oriented, reasonably professional in content and appearance, and planning to be at its current URL for several years.
