Why join Smaller Indiana? What are you hoping to experience here ?
I would like to network with creative folks/agencies and business professionals who might need my services as a web designer. I would also like to share my experiences and occasionally tap into the expertise of folks who may have done something that I'm trying to do.

Thanks Dan… my site has grown and developed over the years, but I couldn't have done it without you. Maybe two months after taking your class, I was being interviewed by The Indianapolis Star, and the interviewer had printed out all the pages of my site. So taking your class help advance my career. For that, I am thankful.
I've never looked into books on WordPress. I'm guessing that you want to know what template tags do and such. With a new version of WordPress coming out every so frequently, I would hesitate using anything but the WordPress codex. http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags Since it's a wiki, it is slow to be updated, but it's a starting spot for reference. Big picture wise, I don't know where to start. I like to get into the code and figure it out. I've slowing and gradually been making my blogs more complex. I usually use Google to find what a tag does. I had to guess at the meaning of some tag parameters when tags were implemented within WordPress 2.3. Thankfully, the community is so large and so many people blog about WordPress, it's usually easy to find what you need via Google.
I have a background in PHP, so looking into a primer on PHP might help if you want do anything besides moving native WP tags around.
Because this will be a pretty robust site, you likely won't see a regional Beta 'til May, and looking toward August/September for a national launch. Thanks for signing up though, we'll be sure to keep you informed of it's progress.
Best of luck with your search..... Jeff
Thanks again for the quick response! I started out in Graphic Design and then realized my passion for getting paint and ink on my hands. I appreciate the advice and I will definitely look into those websites.
Thanks for the message! Art therapy has definitely been on my radar. It would require me to go back to school, so it's something I would need to be completely set on. Feel free to send any other ideas my way! I am open to anything that presents itself in the art field, even internships.
