This is my third try at writing this post as I have lost my draft three times. Isn’t that just the way when you want to talk about a technology? I am writing this in the dashboard of WordPress. There are many choices when wanting to use a blogging platform, like Blogger, Moveable Type, Squarespace and others. I like to stay up to date on what all of them are doing. I was able to see what was new in the world of WordPress and learn some cool stuff and meet some new friends yesterday.
I had an opportunity to attend an event this weekend in Reno, Nevada, called Reno-Tahoe Wordcamp. I had a chance to see again for the fourth time many users and evangelists of the blogging platform. I was one of the presenters and wanted to thank the organizers for allowing me to talk about “Blogging For A Living.” This is my fourth Wordcamp this year attending Vegas, Miami, Denver previous, and I will be speaking at the Chicago Wordcamp coming up in June. If you are going, I would love to see you there. Next month the main event in the world of Wordcamps is happening in San Francisco. Matt Mullenweg the founder of WordPress will be talking about the company more in depth at that event and everyone should attend.
I wanted to thank the organizers of the Reno-Tahoe Wordcamp for allowing me to be a part of their exciting event. The event was held in a journalism school in Reno at the local college. That to me was a bit of an irony as we are just now being taken serious by the world of journalism so it was also fun to think about how far we have come. If you have a local Wordcamp make you get signed up to attend it will allow you to learn from some of the best and the brightest using this application. I have had an opportunity to walk away always with a new nugget of information or a trick or tip to make my use of WordPress a little better.
