Wordpress is fine by me if it's already set up and ready to use.

Apart from Martin's proposed tutorial/article on the Goodrelations model 
in (which I look forward to) and some of Dan Scott's articles 
(which I read earlier and were very good), I agree with Aaron that the 
use of itemref in the <> context would be a 
great subject for a tutorial.

Plus anything to do with Linked Data in and the use of 
multiple types on a single "item" (I think one of Dan Scott's 
articles did explain attack this one)

And when the proposed extension mechanism is published then 
that would certainly be a subject for a number of tutorials.

Another source of possible articles would be to browse through the 
StackOverflow questions about at 
and look for any common questions.

Finally, I think we should try to provide examples in all 3 formats 
(Microdata, RDFa, and JSON-LD) in every tutorial unless the tutorial is 
specifically about one format or shows how to do something that is only 
possible in one format.
