If you use WordPress – a pretty safe bet given that you are reading Business Blogging 101! – then you will love WordCamp. WordCamp conferences are held in cities around the world and one will be held in Seattle for the first time on Saturday, September 26, 2009.
What is WordCamp? The WordCamp Central website says it well:
WordCamp is a conference that focuses on everything WordPress. WordCamps are informal, community-organized events that are put together by WordPress users like you. Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other. WordCamps are open to WordPress.com and WordPress.org users alike.
One of the most amazing things about WordCamp is the price. It’s up to organizers to decide, but it’s almost always very affordable. Early-bird registration (before September 1st) for WordCamp Seattle is only $25! The regular price is $35. I mean, you can’t afford not to go to WordCamp! At the time of this post, there are only 45 tickets left.
Don’t let the low price deceive you, the speakers at WordCamp Seattle are going to be top-notch: Liz Strauss, Chris Pirillo, Lorelle VanFossen, Ian Lurie, Aaron Hockley, Scott Porad, Maya Bisineer, Jane Wells, Brett Nordquist, Nick Ohrn. These are not just WordPress power users and developers, these are leaders in the world of blogging and social media. Read more about WordCamp Seattle speakers here.
Whether you live in Seattle or not, if you can be here on September 26th, then come to this conference. It is going to ROCK! Looking forward to meeting you!
