Speaking at WordUp Minneapolis 2012 next week

Next weekend, on October 13, the MSP WordPress User Group will be having its first WordUp Minneapolis conference. The event is from 9am to 4pm at the Minneapolis Community & Technical College downtown and costs just ten dollars.

The format for WordUp will basically be a mini-WordCamp. We had our first WordCamp Minneapolis in 2010 and WordUp 2012 will hopefully be a solid stepping stone towards our next WordCamp in early 2013!

WordCamp Chicago road trip

I’m going on a WordPress bender this weekend!

First I’m headed to the Twin Cities for the MSP WordPress meetup. After that, Kiko Doran and I are road tripping down to Chicago for WordCamp Chicago 2012.

This will be my third time attending WordCamp Chicago and it looks like it will be the best one yet. There are a lot of awesome speakers and sessions on the schedule, but I’m really interested in the interactive talks track, hopefully those will start some good conversations.

Headed to WordCamp Chicago this weekend

I will be at WordCamp Chicago this weekend. This will be my second time at WordCamp Chicago and only my third WordCamp, the Midwest needs more WordCamps!

In 2009 I drove down for Chicago’s first WordCamp. I had a great time at WordCamp, but it was a long hectic drive by myself. Not going to make that drive again, but I also don’t want to be one of those people on Twitter complaining about delayed flights and TSA jackboots so I’m going to take the train instead.

I’m packing a nice thick book and hoping for a stress-free trip, don’t let me down Amtrak!

Looking forward to meeting a bunch of people I only know from Twitter or their blogs, new people who I haven’t bumped into online yet, and maybe even some people who use Meteor Slides.
