I was there for Saturday’s Wordcamp and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Big congrats to Sabrina and Katherine who made it happen – I believe they may be persuaded to do it all again next year. Despite being in charge, the lovely ladies did not come over all Nazi like and bossy, dinging bells to mark end of time, etc. And yet, every talk I went to started and ended on time. This proved to me that Wordcamp was about sharing and learning and not egos. I like that.
Langtons was a lovely venue, although the greenhouse that I was giving my presentation in got hit with adverse weather… who would have expected such sun in March? A lot of light made the screen rather difficult to see. This meant that my *lovely* presentation that I spent hours of Friday on, didn’t get to be shown. Resorting to marker, memory and flipchat, I gave my talk on ‘how to write for blogs’. Lucky I knew the material because I was doing it from memory.
If you weren’t there, but you’d like get a condensed version, Jon Jacob accosted me with a video camera immediately after I’d given my talk. Here’s the 4 minute version on how to write for blogs! [Must remember to top up my lipstick next time I get a video camera on me!]
Check out Jon’s other post about building online communities - he really does write rather well. Needs no tips from me. Is a natural.
