Where Does A Knitter Start?
“Be careful what you wish for!” I wished to learn more about blogging, I wanted details, I needed resources, the blog can be better. Plus, it’s been too long since I learned something new.
Wow, did WordCamp Sacramento sock it to me!
Now to put it all into action. It would be easy to just focus on the computer and blog side – but there must be knitting! So, knitting wins the coin toss. Then comes playing with the WordPress program!
What’s It Like at WordCamp?
An overload of things to see, to do, to try, and so many people to meet. Here’s a sampler of what happened Saturday and Sunday:
- Had the opportunity to take a beginner class during each teaching period – but could also choose others – 15 classes total
- Asked vendors questions about their products face to face
- Met lots of cool people both programmers and bloggers (some are both!)
- Great Food
- I was inspired with ideas for new blog posts
- More great food
- Learned there is a WordPress MeetUp in my area once a month! Woot!
- Went to the Happiness Bar and Help Desk for great, free, WordPress help – face to face
- Took advantage of a networking opportunity where we were taught the basic process and then practiced it
- More food
- More ideas for blogging
- Met tons of people who work with WordPress websites
- And the priceless outcome: my geek son was Very Impressed by the tons of swag from cool companies
Did I mention how great it was to be learning something new? It’s that same satisfaction that I get from knitting – making new projects can be so satisfying because it’s new. No matter how many projects one has done, there is always a little bit learned in making something from a new pattern. Those little challenges in new patterns are learning opportunities.
