Attending WordCamp Utah and WordCamp Las Vegas

I’m really excited to be attending both WordCamp Utah and WordCamp Las Vegas in the next couple months. I’ve attended WordCamp Las Vegas in the past and enjoyed it thoroughly. I’ve always wanted to present at a WordCamp and so I’ll actually be presenting at both WordCamp conferences.

WordCamp Utah
At WordCamp Utah, I’m going to be presenting on “Why BuddyPress Rocks!” I think it’s going to be a fun session where I can talk about all the different ways that BuddyPress can be used. I can discuss where the development of BuddyPress is headed and how I’m using BuddyPress on my new sports fundraising website. This should be a lot of fun since I pretty much work on BuddyPress all day now.

Plus, hopefully I’ll be able to share how cool it is to be a member of a small niche community like BuddyPress. There are thousands of them online and it’s really fun to be part of one. Plus, hopefully I can connect with some other BuddyPress and WordPress developers that I can work with in the future. If I grow GivingSports.com and GivingSquare.com the way I’d like, I’m going to definitely need some good WordPress/BuddyPress development help soon.

WordCamp Las Vegas
I was planning to present on BuddyPress at WordCamp Las Vegas as well, but another guy was interested in presenting on that topic too. Not a big deal for me. I’m just glad that BuddyPress will be talked about at the WordCamp. Plus, I have 6 other blogs that basically feed my family so there are plenty of other blogging related topics that I could present on.

I’m going to be presenting at WordCamp Las Vegas on “From Hobby to Full Time Blogger: Lessons Learned from 5 Years of Blogging” I’ve wanted the chance to tell my story of blogging for a while, so I’m excited to be given the opportunity. Hopefully those that attend will find it interesting and useful. I’ve learned a lot about blogging over the past 5 years and I’m really happy to call myself a full time blogger.

If any of you are planning to attend these events, I look forward to meeting you there.

    […] I must admit that it’s kind of sad to think that I’ll be basically shutting down this blog. Smuggle Me (this blog) was the first blog I ever created. It’s the start of what has become my blogging empire (a small empire, but an empire just the same). Who would have thought that me just playing around with WordPress one day would later become my full time job and me traveling to present at WordCamp Utah and Las Vegas. […]
