Who is using WordPress?

Who is using WordPress? I would love to see what you've done with your website. To share, I just setup WordPress for my brother's nightclub, M Sessions - but we're still working on getting the videos up and running.

I use WordPress and am a big fan. For my needs I wouldn't go back to the traditional tools like Dreamweaver or just html. There are limits to what it can easily do, but I haven't bumped into those limits yet.

Inserting Flash videos is dead simple as there are a couple players you can use, as I recall. Just insert a couple of lines of boilerplate code specifying the video file name and poster frame and you're done.

Been a wordpress user since version 2.1 and have seen the available themes grow from simple looking blogs to multi functional business, blog or portfolio themes. I also love how quick I can set up and customize a theme to my needs, it does take some practice and a lot of trial and error once you start changing the code behind the themes as the smallest mistakes breaks the layout, but actually it's really fun to do.

My "hobby" blog is from woothemes, "the journal", it has a newspaper layout and is perfect for big blogs containing a lot of information. I did not change much about it, just translated it to Dutch and changed the background.

My business site is from themeforest named "pandora" and I really love it, I stripped it down to the bear essentials and what's cool about it is that it is using lightbox coding to overlay your video on the site and making the rest darker. the media page, which is the portfolio has the option to go to a protected page (if my clients don't want the world to see their video) and if it's not protected the video just pops up. I could attach a regular blog to it but I don't want to, now it looks like a static site but with a great video portfolio section which is basically a blog in disguise :)
It only costs 35 dollar and you get a lot of value for it's price.

If one day I don't know what to do with my money I might hire a designer and have me build a unique looking website but until that happens I rather spend that money on video equipment and cheap but good looking wordpress themes.
