We’re starting the WordPress year out right with an exciting WordCamp Las Vegas, the very first WordCamp of 2009. I’m flying out this week for this weekend’s star-studded blogger event.
The two day event on January 10-11 has an awesome line up of speakers covering all things blogging, social media, and WordPress:
- Matt Mullenweg
- Joseph Scott
- Aaron Hockley
- Lorelle VanFossen
- Jim Kukral
- Geoff Kleinman
- Liz Strauss
- Michael Dorausch
- Micah Baldwin
- Dave Taylor
- Micah Baldwin
- Shayne Sanderson
Register now to start your year off focused on WordPress and to get your blog in line with the latest technologies and trends in blogging.
Recently, many WordPress events and WordCamps have been livestreaming their presentations, and the WordCamp Las Vegas Live Stream will be on for what we hope is the entire event. You need to register to watch the event live at Ustream WordCamp Las Vegas, so you can enjoy the program and participate no matter where you are in the world.
With top social media experts like Liz Strauss onboard, social will be a key topic. To encourage more social, participants are urged to submit their Twitter ID so everyone can track each other during the event.
The Hashtag and tag for WordCamp Las Vegas is #wordcamplv.
All are invited, but if you can’t come, help WordCamp Las Vegas promote the event.
Don’t forget that I’ll also be the keynote at WordCamp Whistler on January 24 in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada.
Lorelle Speaks at WordCamp Las Vegas
I will be taking about “numbers” and basic web analytics at WordCamp Las Vegas, showing examples of how to use Woopra, the hottest web analytics tool around. Woopra tracks your blog traffic and activity live, in real time. Currently, Woopra is in closed beta, but I will have a limited number of beta invitations available.
The price of my book, Blogging Tips, What Bloggers Won't Tell You About Blogging, is going up, but I will have copies available for sale at the introductory price. Unless the publisher says otherwise, this will be the last chance to get the book at the lower price – and avoid shipping costs!
I love going to Vegas and the last few times I’ve not had time to see a single show – one of the most important reasons to go. This time, watch out Barry Manilow and Bette Midler – I’m planning on coming to see you. Don’t know how but that’s my goal. Anyone got any Las Vegas ticket finding tips? 😀
