Charlotte Wordcamp

charlotte-wordcamp-2

I had the opportunity and pleasure yesterday to attend Charlotte WordCamp. Basically, it was a meeting of bloggers to discuss ideas and network. You can read an article about it here.

If you’re a blogger and you have a chance to attend a WordCamp do it. If you do go I strongly urge you to take at least two things, a notebook (like an actual notebook that you write on), and business cards. If you don’t have business cards get them printed up before you go. I lost count how many people asked me for a card and I felt like a total dweeb not having them.

It was great to meet a lot of area bloggers and connect with them. I wish I could have remembered everyone’s name. Unfortunately, I have a mind like a wiffle ball. My Asus EEE PC, aka The Stealth Computer, was a real conversation starter too. It was weird having people ask me questions about my blogs only because I’m not used to wearing my blogger pants in public.

The highlight of WordCamp for me was Mark Jaquith. Not only did he give us an in-depth preview of WordPress 2.7 but the best part was that he knew who I was. Granted we both do work for b5media but still, it was immensely cool.

There was an afterparty at Ri-Ra but of about 120 participants at WordCamp, only 6 went to the afterparty.
