Burlington Writers Workshop

This past weekend I had the opportunity to speak to a local group of writers, artists, and small business people about the benefits of WordPress. It was a great experience, and I really enjoyed sharing my knowledge with this passionate group from my community.

I was joined by Alexis Dubief, who gave an excellent talk about “Being Awesome Online”, which included practical advice for building your audience, and marketing yourself.

My presentation gave a high-level overview of the WordPress open-source Content Management System, and highlighted some of the differences between a self-hosted WordPress site and and the “freemium” service WordPress.com.
