Learning from the Voices of WordCamp Dallas

WordPress NewsCharles Stricklin, the host of and has released The Voices of WordCamp Dallas, a collection of quick interviews and questions I asked during the event.

I was so amazed at how open everyone was, willing to share their thoughts on WordPress, WordCamp, blogging, and the magic of the web today. I talked to bloggers who had been blogging for years and newbies, with only a few weeks under their belts. It was a collection of the whose who and whose upcoming in the blogosphere and thank you to Charles for sharing the magic that his efforts brought together in one place.

    I enjoyed the interviews. Lorelle, you are good at getting people to feel comfortable and open up for the microphone.

    If you continue these kinds of interviews, I’d love to know more specifics about how WordPressers use their blogs: for example, what are their favorite plugins (outside of the handful that everyone knows about already) and what really bugs them about WordPress?

    This is a great audio resource Lorelle, thanks for making it. Definitely looking forward to attending a WordCamp if there is one nearby soon.

    I just found out I was in this interview by seeing who was linked to me in Alexa. Lorelle do you have the original recording because it looks like the link is broken. 😦
