The more I use WordPress, the more I like it. Call it "bloat" as much as you want, but it's really neat to spin up a full fledged ready-to-be-shown website in minutes.

A friend of mine asked me if I could help her with a website for her work as a photographer. I think WordPress is a solid choice, but I have little to none experience with it. I don't just want to set up a cheap template and call it a day.

Out of all the services I host myself, is by far the one I use most often.

@BirdsiteLIVE @garritfra I'm sure something like this already exists, I just haven't found it yet.
I've thrown together a quick index of available BirdsiteLIVE instances here:
I've just added the three of us at the moment because... well.... they're the only ones i know of.
I still have to write a daily checkup of instance saturation and version, but I'm hoping it will help if there's any issues relating to a specific instance people will know who to contact.
