Since many bloggers utilize WordPress as their blogging platform, we wanted to have a place for attendees to ask their most pressing WP questions. Super WP user, technology wiz, and instructor, Dr. Lisa Richardson, will be on hand for 10 minute consultations during breaks between sessions. These one-on-one sessions are great for those of you who need a little extra help with WordPress (or any tech related questions you may have).
Because of the size of the conference, we are asking that you schedule your 10 minute session beforehand. To schedule a session, simply email email@example.com with your name, URL, and WordPress issue(s) summarized. Also indicate what day you are attending (day #1, day #2, or both days), and we will email you back with the time of your scheduled appointment.
Also, in order to make the appointment as hands on as possible, be sure to bring your laptop with you to the conference for the appointment.
Appointments will be handled on a first come, first served basis.
In 1983, Lincoln Richardson brought home a brand-new computer and taught his eight-year-old daughter how to write a simple program in BASIC, play games, and use a word processing program. It was love at first sight. In college, ten years later, that girl was introduced to the internet. She learned how to chat online, search for information…and skip classes. (goodbye full ride!) Today, Dr. Lisa Richardson helps individuals and organizations optimize business processes with a holistic approach to technology education and web design strategy. Lisa T. Richardson, PhD is the lead designer of Flow! Web Strategy & Design (YouCanFlow.com) in Atlanta, GA.
This year’s Show Me the Blog may be over, but it’s now time to start working on planning the conference for 2012. We want next year’s conference to be even more successful, so we are putting together a Planning Committee to help organize, develop, and plan next year’s event.
The areas of planning are:
Our first Planning Committee meeting will be Saturday, November 19th, from 10 am to 12pm at the Maryland Heights Centre, located at 2344 McKelvey Road, Maryland Heights, MO 63043.
If you are interested in being on the 2012 Planning Committee and would like to attend the meeting, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are limited spots available so make sure you contact us quickly!
We want you to be a part of 2012′s Show Me the Blog!
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending Caren Libby’s Get a Brand workshop, which focused on tools and techniques that can help people create a brand for their business, web presence, blog, job search, and more. It was a very informative workshop that was chock full of information that is beneficial for all of the categories listed above. Setting yourself apart from the pack is the only way to get noticed these days, and having a consistent brand is key to achieving that.
Caren walked us step-by-step on the branding process and gave us insightful tools that I will definitely be putting to use.
Caren was also accompanied by Kathy Bernard, who helps job seekers Get a Job with career advice and helpful job tips. For the cost of a simple lunch, Kathy will give you a one-on-one consultation session entitled the ‘Career Launch Lunch’—perfect for those who want to determine if they need a career coach or consultant.
These ladies prove that information sharing is the way to go these days in social media!
