I could browse through other 'Show me your website' threads, but I thought it would be nice to have one specifically for those using Wordpress as an entire website (information, galleries, and blog all combined).

[My wordpress site is a WIP and will be finished sometime soon hopefully -- I'm doing it all myself and learning as I go]

Just made it last week: http://GaryReynoldsIma​ges.com (external link). It's a work in progress.

I followed Tim's advice and use HostGator + Photocrati. The Photocrati folks have been very responsive to all my questions.

Cheers,

Gary

Here's mine: http://www.emilcrumhor​n.com/ (external link).

Front-end is mostly as I want it, there's some tweaks left on the back-end to make my life easier. Main image management plugin in "NextGEN", lets me keep all images organized in one place. Then various customizations and further plugins.

It's hosted on a medium instance of AWS (external link) (Amazon Web Services) using a fairly typical Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP (LAMP) setup.

It is a simple dutch blog. Where I use a plug-in to show the flickr images on my site (as albums, Widget and when I want in the content. Really like this integration

Did some customizing at the plug-in so it fits my needs. I'm not satisfied but it works for now. Time is one the problems these days :D

Thanks all. Some nice sites so far. I like EC.Photo's a lot.

I started off and currently am working on something light and small.
It is just a free template, which I find very very limited -- actually would need to buy full version to even get access to gallery/portfolio templates. I'm not sure if I like the theme enough to do that.

so then I found a theme that I quite like that's the opposite -- fullscreen and dark-ish (link: http://themeforest.net …WT.z_author=The​meProvince (external link))

Not sure where to go, I'll work on it some more this weekend since it is supposed to rain :(

I like your site, but I think you need a new logo :D I might be able to help you out if you give me some ideas/starting points

is that a widget that displays your four categories and changes when you hover over certain parts?

does anyone use the Gallery Web App in conjunction with wordpress? I used to use it with V2 and it worked great, once gallery went to V3 the wordpress integration was not so great.
