I'm still getting the hang of things, especially CSS. My site is http://whatdoesnicklike.com and is pretty much what the URL implies: places, things, services, golf courses, music/movies. I will have features outside WP for travelogues such as my trip to Italy and Austria last month, but I need to get the core site spiffy first.
I intend to eventually have advertising, with an AdSense campaign on the main page and affiliate links in specific posts (such as writing about a DVD). But there's not much point in having advertising until I can get enough content to draw a readership base!
