  • Leo Gopal: The WordPress Community, Mental Wellness, and You

    Leo Gopal: The WordPress Community, Mental Wellness, and You

    WordCamp Cape Town 2016

    November 24, 2016 — Our own mental wellness, and that of those around us, is probably the least understood and most neglected part of our daily lives. It is time we all started understanding what it truly means to have mental wellness and what it means to us and those around us when we do not have it – especially what we can do to help those around us and ourselves.

    The WordPress community is both the perfect place for Mental Health issues to go undetected as well as the perfect place for so many people to live a higher quality of life simply by increasing our awareness to it.

  • Hugh Lashbrooke: Democratising Community

    Hugh Lashbrooke: Democratising Community

    WordCamp Cape Town 2016Speaker: Hugh Lashbrooke

    November 6, 2016 — The stated mission of the WordPress project is to “democratise publishing”, but with all the people involved, the project has achieved so much more than that over the past 13 years. In fact, with the number of people involved in building the WordPress project and community on a daily basis, its no wonder that the community is so powerful and the whole project has had such an impact on the world. That begs the question of how you can get involved and how you can make a difference – how can you, as an individual, continue the mission of the WordPress project beyond WordCamp?

  • Sally Mayor: How WordPress Saved My Life

    Sally Mayor: How WordPress Saved My Life

    WordCamp Nederland 2016Speaker: Sally Mayor

    November 3, 2016 — OK, the title is a bit clickbaity but the general idea is that in 2011, I lost my second job in a row thanks to a chronic illness I’ve now had for 12 years. I was lost, no work and no money, just a penchant for writing and an obsession with the internet.

    Step forward WordPress and within days (and some long nights) I had set up a website and founded a business called WordNerd. With no real idea of what I was doing, I started marketing and blogging about my services and since then I’ve built a small business from the ground up.

    I work as an online copywriter, mainly writing websites and blogs, and I also train people how to blog. I started without a penny to my name or any contacts, and now, less than five years later, I freelance two days a week for a very large brand who head-hunted me, I was in London yesterday teaching six business owners about blogging, and I can manage my own workload and my health.

    If it hadn’t been for a website and blogging platform called WordPress I don’t know that any of this would have happened and I have no idea what would have become of me if I had been unable to work for myself.

    Lots of people are unsatisfied at work or they need flexible working hours to accommodate their health or their family, or for any other reason, but they’re scared of making that leap and working for themselves. I think my story could show people that simply with a laptop and WordPress (and a few 1a.m. nights working out what the heck CSS is and how HTML works) you really can follow your dreams and achieve anything.
