Blenderpdx.org is up and running (blenderpdx.com works as well). Everyone's invited to become Authors/Contributors, however rather than go through and set everyone up, I'm leaving it open for each to Register and Sign up with the username and password they prefer. By default, when you register, you'll be asked to submit a username and email. The username cannot be changed. Wordpress will send you a password that's pretty tough to remember, but once you sign in you an edit your profile and change your password.
By default you're set up as a subscriber, however once we see that you've logged in, and we verify, we'll change to give you the appropriate permissions.
Let me know if you have any questions,
