I always find reading the experiences of those using WordPress for the first time interesting. That includes this one from 18-year-old Roan de Vries (son of Remkus De Vries, a well-known member of the WordPress community).
Also, welcome back to the fray, WP Realm! Remkus is going to be back at it, blogging about WordPress. For a while there, WP Realm was actually redirecting to Post Status, but I never actually announced it. I like it better with Remkus at the wheel.
