With WordCamp NYC coming up next weekend – I’m catching that whole WordCamp spirit again.  I have to say that I truly enjoy attending WordCamp and wish more WP users would attend, if they could.  It’s really a great deal of fun just meeting, talking and sharing with other people within the user community – the benefits are undeniable…talk to anyone who has attended any WordCamp, anywhere – they’ll all say the same.  It’s an experience not to be missed, if you can. So I’m headed to bed for the night after working on my presentation for WordCamp NYC and […]

Charnell Pugsley from ServerBeach, and myself getting things rollin at SXSW 2009

I cannot begin to tell you how great SXSW was this year – it keeps getting better each year I go. That is probably because of the fact that I meet new people every year, and get the opportunity to see old friends, as well. This year was no different….

‘m leaving this morning – hopping a flight in Milwaukee and arriving in Austin around 3pm for the SXSW Interactive Festival this weekend. I’m excited to go and looking forward to seeing everyone there. It’s been a lot of hard work and several sleepless nights over the past few weeks preparing for the activities at SXSW – but I made it! I got done what needed to get done and now all I have to do is get there! I just fired off an email to my friends at ServerBeach with the 5 premium WordPress themes that they will be giving away at their exhibit booth..

SXSW Craziness!

March 11, 2009 * 1 Comment

I’ve been spending the past 2 weeks preparing for my trip to the SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin, TX. This will be my third trip down to Austin for SXSW and I’m really looking forward to attending this year. Normally, there’s always a great deal to do before I take off for 5 days to attend the biggest geek gathering ever! I normally work long hours to make sure that all my client projects are either done, or well on their way to done and make sure everything I need on my home PC is set up for remote access, etc, etc. THIS year, however – it’s been a bit more crazy than usual because I’ve been working on developing five (5) premium WordPress themes that will be released at SXSW at the ServerBeach exhibit booth..

I have been ever so slightly *MIA* here, I realize. This is due to several reasons – – some personal – – others just involve lots of work and lots of catching up on work! I do have lots going on, though – so let me get right to it with information about a recent interview, my appearance at the SXSW Interactive Festival, some WordCamp Chicago updates, and some great tid bits about WordPress for Dummies, 2nd Edition – – including the winners of my previously mentioned autographed book giveaway. . .
