    Carole Olinger: Aboard the WordPress Community : A Journey of Self-Discovery

    WordCamp Miami 2018Speaker: Carole Olinger

    July 25, 2018 — What could be the benefit of being part of the WordPress Community if you don’t even use WordPress? How far can you get if you decide to step out of your comfort-zone and overcome your fears?

    My husband dragged me kicking and screaming to my first WordCamp. I did not even know what WordPress was up to that point and I was scared of meeting the “nerdy” part of my husband’s life probably due to not being able to get involved.

    The story I want to share is about how things evolved afterward, as I visited several WordCamps as a passionate volunteer to the point of getting a true WordPress Community-Junkie. It is about how I became a WordCamp organizer, speaker and emcee in almost no time. It is about how I found new enjoyable professional challenges.

    It is the story about how I have been changing my life completely in only one year, because I dared to step out of my comfort-zone.

    WordCamp Utrecht 2017Speaker: Carole Olinger

    January 9, 2018 — I entered the world of WordPress because my husband invited me to join him during his trip to WordCamp Europe 2016 in Vienna. I did not even know what WordPress was up to that point. I was scared of meeting the “nerdy” part of my husband’s life probably due to not being able to get involved into it because of a lack of both interest and knowledge.
    The story I want to share is about how things evolved afterward, as I visited several WordCamps as a passionate volunteer to the point of getting a true WordPress Community-Junkie. It is about how the community has actually allowed me to take part in the life that my husband’s leading every day. It is about how I became a WordCamp speaker and emcee as well as a member of the organizing team of three different WordCamps including WCEU 2018 without even having used WordPress professionally before.
    It is the story about how I have been changing my life completely in one year: from sickness, frustration, and depression through a new source of inspiration and creativity to lots of new opportunities in personal and professional matters.
    Being part of and contributing to the WordPress Community can be a very inspiring and enriching experience – not only for WordPress users and professionals but also for their partners, friends, and family.

    May 22, 2017 — Mein persönlicher Weg vom Nicht-WordPress User zum WordPress Community-Junkie – oder – wie ich dank der außergewöhnlichen Community auch ein Teil der „Nerd-Welt“ meines Mannes werden konnte:

    über gesammelte Erfahrungen beim WCEU 2016, WC Frankfurt, WC Cologne, WC Nederland, WC London;

    – über jede Menge Inspiration für neue, berufliche und persönliche Pfade;
    – über neu entdeckte persönliche Stärken und Kompetenzen und jede Menge Dazulernen;
    über absolute Inklusivität und wie es sich anfühlt, bedingungslos aufgenommen zu werden;
    – über Frustration und Krankheit und den Weg zu neuer physischer und psychischer Stärke;
    – über den Aufbau meiner ersten eigenen Webseite für ein gemeinnütziges Projekt, fast ohne Vorkenntnisse;
    – über Jobangebote aus heiterem Himmel und neue berufliche Perspektiven;
    – über das Schreiben für HeroPress und andere WordPress-Kanäle;
    – über die Organisation eines deutschen WordCamps und Meetups;
    – über das Erreichen eines neuen Levels meiner Ehe

    auf dem Weg zu einem neuen selbstbestimmten und erfüllten Leben.
