    Nile Flores: What I Learned in 14 Years About Blogging

    WordCamp Las Vegas 2015Speaker: Nile Flores

    February 20, 2016 — Ive been blogging for over 14 years now. Ive seen a lot of things go on, and experienced failure and success. Ive seen a lot of bloggers, even ones that I had come to know as friends, just give up. However, even after 14 years, I love blogging. I want to share with you my tips that I learned throughout my long blogging journey well, the abridged edition at least. 😉 I hope that with my own experience, you will be able to find it useful in what to look out for, what to avoid, and what you probably should be doing. Whether you’re a new blogger, or have been blogging between 1-5 years, hopefully my mistakes and my discoveries will help you rock out your blog for decades to come.

  • Joe Schaffner: Make a Good WordPression - Tech Blogging for a Reluctant Audience

    Joe Schaffner: Make a Good WordPression – Tech Blogging for a Reluctant Audience

    WordCamp US 2015Speaker: Joe Schaffner

    December 13, 2015 — Educational technologists often find themselves in the unenviable position of tech-change communication at their institutions. While there came be a lot of enthusiastic educators advocating for such change, there can be just as many who regard a school’s adoption of new technologies like learning management systems as an imposition on their profession. A WordPress blog can serve both audiences as an information resource and training tool. This session will look at the University of Pennsylvania’s use of a WordPress blog as a case for serving such functions, as well as discuss how to apply this type of blogging to other tough tech-change-communication contexts (business, NGOs, etc).
