Hah! Did I get you with the "effortless"? The thing about Drupal, like most open souce CMS platforms, is that you can get it to a place where it's an amazingly easy and powerful way to admin your content, but you have to put in a bunch of effort first. This is especially true if you're an early adopter and like to experiment with the newest version of Drupal.
One thing I'm doing with this blog site of mine, besides blogging, is using it to test essential modules and features that most web content admins need and want. Like the ability to easily upload and insert images into a piece of content. So when I read this Module Monday post by Lullabot, I got excited.
