  • Michelle Ames: The Care and Feeding of the WordPress Community: Me, You, and Us

    WordCamp Niagara 2019Speaker: Michelle Ames

    December 30, 2019 — The WordPress community is comprised of people and their relationships with one another and the open source CMS itself. Combined we are a global neighborhood, complete with volunteers, freelancers, employees, a marketplace, and a multitude of opportunities; opportunities for relationships, working, learning, teaching, sharing, volunteering, and more.

    At its foundation, its most fundamental part, this neighborhood is built by every individual member. We are each an integral part of this growing, morphing phenomenon, so it is up to us to ensure that it is a robust living organism.

    How do we do that?

    *For Myself: by making sure I stay healthy both physically and emotionally
    *For You: by checking in on my friends and coworkers to help where needed
    *For Us: by contributing to the community in thoughtful and deliberate ways

    This talk will share ideas to keep us all healthy, learning, and flourishing, for the betterment of ourselves, each other, and the WordPress neighborhood.

  • Carole Olinger: Aboard the WordPress Community: a journey of self-discovery

    WordCamp Torino 2018Speaker: Carole Olinger

    May 5, 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.
