WordCamp New York 2010

Want to go to WordCamp NYC?? It's on me!

November 8, 2009 * 18 Comments

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 […]

It's Official – BuddyPress For Dummies

July 16, 2009 * 25 Comments

The Amazon.com placeholder makes it official, I guess!  I haven’t officially announced it yet – so I guess now is as good a time as any!  I know I’ve been a little book title neurotic over here, having announced my intention to write TypePad For Dummies just a few months ago – but as with everything else in this world of technology, things move rather fast!  Wiley Publishing has made a commitment to put out a series of different WordPress related books over the next year, it’s exciting!  My own book, WordPress For Dummies, was so well received with sales […]

Keeping my focus on WordPress

June 12, 2009 * 23 Comments

Back in mid-May, I made an announcement here about a new book that I was contracted to write for Wiley Publishing, TypePad For Dummies.    I’m still very active in my WordPress For Dummies project, as a matter of fact, I just updated the book recently for a reprint and a 3rd edition of WordPress For Dummies is scheduled to start this year.  Since I did not have any other books on my schedule for 2009, I took the opportunity offered by Wiley to write the TypePad book.  That has now changed, however;  a lot can  happen in 2-3 weeks – […]

WordPress 2.8 Goodness

June 10, 2009 * 6 Comments

I’ve been using 2.8 beta since it’s release and upgraded this evening to 2.8 (Baker) this evening and nothing broke – that is always a bonus! Loving the upgrades to the WordPress platform and how everything is pretty much automated for users – – now not only can you upgrade your WordPress installation directly from your Dashboard AND search for, install and activate new plugins (and upgrade existing ones) directly from your WordPress Dashboard – but you can do the same with free WordPress Themes from the official themes directory. A true WordPress Trifecta – it’s brilliant. I’m going through […]

TypePad For Dummies, I'm doing it.

May 19, 2009 * 16 Comments

I couldn’t believe it when I stopped and paid notice to the fact that I have not updated my blog here since my return from SXSW. What a sorry, sorry blogger I am! Short story, I’ve been ultimately too chaotically busy with design projects, organizing WordCamp Chicago and some family matters that shall remain unmentioned – let’s just say … kids – I liked them better when they were cute and cuddly and weren’t old enough to drive a car! ‘Nuff said? I think so…
