Why WordPress?

After editing Sandra De Freitas’ book, Does This Blogsite Make My Wallet Look Fat, I couldn’t wait to try my hand at building my own WP site. I’m the administrator of a non-profit website, so I revamped it and it’s been running on WP ever since. I love how customizable it is, and so quick and simple to update.

What are you most looking forward to at WordCamp Toronto?

Meeting other people who are passionate about blogging. Sometime I feel like a Martian among earthlings (or is it the other way around?).

Why did you decide to speak at WordCamp Toronto?

I want to help people make the most out of their WordPress sites by publishing new content on a consistent basis – without it having to be a chore.

What is your talk going to be about?

I’m going to show people just how easy it is to post valuable new content all through the month, without having to come up with earth-shattering or intricate posts every week.

What is one thing you want people to walk away with from your talk?

You have more to write about than you think you do, and there are easier ways to get your ideas onto your blog.

What is your favourite WordPress plugin or theme? Why?

Automatic Upgrade makes it super easy to keep our WP installation up to date.
