Whenever I have the opportunity to speak at an event, I always try to cover the events, any slides, any footage, and any other material related to the event in my speaking category.
Sometimes, though, I’ll write an article on another property that spends more time diving into a talk or a presentation that I gave in an attempt to help reach people through a site with a larger audience.
And it in a recent post for Envato, I did exactly that. Specifically, I did a deeper dive into my WordCamp San Diego speech on what it means to focus on running a business while keeping up with changing technology.
Many of you are likely familiar with Office Hours with Carrie Dils. But if not, here’s what the show is all about:
Every Thursday at 2p ET as Carrie interviews a variety of folks within the WordPress ecosystem, from plugin developers to marketers to business owners. The one thing they have in common? Each guest has found business success through leveraging WordPress as both a tool and a platform.
I had the honor of appearing on the show in previous episodes and had a great time. I also recommend tuning in when you have a chance as it’s a great, free opportunity to hear and learn from others.
As I’m decompressing from the whirlwind that was WordCamp San Diego, I’ve been going through notes and bookmarked posts on the topics for many of the things that were discussed.
But my mind is also drifting to several emails, messages, and notes I’ve received this year about those who are interested in attending a WordCamp but have yet to do so for one reason or another.
Though I’m considering writing several posts over the course of this week all related to the material covered at the conference, I thought it might be worth sharing some of the reasons that I enjoy going to WordCamp.
