My WordCamp Dallas Media

Welcome To Frisco Texas

Phew, finally finished uploading my photos to Flickr and then going through them one by one and providing a short description for the ones that needed it. All in all, there are about 40 images. Some of them detail WordCamp Dallas while others detail the hotel’s that I stayed in along with various other random images. I also have a couple of YouTube videos that you may or may not be interested in which are all available to watch on this post.

With all of that out of the way, I can begin to write up my own WordCamp Experience.

Safe And Sound

Hello! I’m blogging from within my room inside of my home! After what seemed like an eternity, I have finally arrived home safe and sound from my trip to Dallas. I’ll have to tell you why it was a hellacious return trip some other day but for now, I have so much to do in regards to WordCamp Dallas follow ups that my mind is racing. I have photos to upload to Flickr, videos to YouTube, articles to write based on the event and so much more. It doesn’t help that when I opened my email in box, I was greeted with 120 messages. Thank goodness they are mostly email notifications letting me know people are following me on twitter or from various blogs letting me know of follow up comments.

At any rate, please keep an eye on this blog as you are sure to see a flurry of posts within the next few weeks. WordCamp Dallas was awesome and I’m so glad I went.

WordCamp Dallas This Weekend

The week has finally arrived where I can tell folks that I will be going to Dallas to attend WordCamp this weekend. WordCamp Dallas is an event that was orchestrated by Charles Stricklin, host of the WordPress Podcast.

Going To WordCamp Dallas – Are You?

The other day, I happen to purchase a ticket to WordCamp Dallas. The ticket cost me $20 and the event will mark the first conference I have ever been able to attend. The event is being organized by Charles Stricklin, host of the WordPress Podcast. If you want to know more about what WordCamp is, check out the post I wrote for called What Is WordCamp?

The event will be featured by some interesting speakers/speeches such as:

  • Matt Mullenweg on WordPress 2.5 and Beyond
  • 45 Ways To Power Up Your Blog by John Pozadzides
  • How to prevent, detect and stop content theft by Jonathan Bailey
  • Cali Lewis and Neal Campbell
  • C’mon, Let’s Talk! Building influence and interaction with blogging by Liz Strauss
  • WordPress Power Tips by Lorelle Van Fossen
  • SEO For Bloggers by Chris Smith
  • Aaron Brazell
  • A panel of people to discuss the business of blogging: Mark Ghosh, Liz Strauss, and Aaron Brazell
  • Testing With WordPress by Jacob Santos

I’m pretty stoked about going to an event where people want to meet me and vice versa. I’ll be able to meet Ronald Huereca in person as well as, Charles Stricklin, Mark Ghosh, Lorelle Van Fossen, Matt Mullenweg and others. I plan on taking quite a few photos along with some video clips of the event. If I can manage to get a voice recorder, I also plan on getting a couple of interviews completed and then turning that into a WordPress Weekly episode.

If you are attending the event, let me know.

The WordCamp Report

The WordCamp Report

If you are a WordPress user, you are definitely going to want to bookmark this site. The WordCamp Report is specifically reporting on everything going on at WordCamp. I can’t attend because I live in Ohio but the WordCamp Report blog should keep me informed as if I were there. Special thanks to the blogs authors, Patrick Havens and Charles Stricklin for keeping those who couldn’t attend up to date.
