I started a Group called WordPress As A Resume Or Portfolio Site For Job Seekers USA.  You must be a member (free) of LinkedIn to join.  I hope to have participants discuss their experiences and frustrations with using WordPress.  This site acts as a tutorial for that group and anyone else interested in learning WordPress and starting a Web site or blog.
