It was The SweetHeart who encouraged me to set my sights on being a part of WordCamp Philippines 2008 earlier this year : “There’s a WordCamp in your area, why don’t you join?”
I took note of the fact, even though I half-suspected he was ready to relinquish his Web Monkey duties. You see, when something’s ready to be fixed in my blog, I either call on friends or request the sweetheart to put it on his “honeydew” list (honey do this, honey do that) 😛
Admittedly, am the lazy WordPress user, one of those persons who’ve taken to heart the definition of blogging as a “one-click publishing platform.” I can hardly be bothered with technicalities because writing blog posts (and newspaper articles) is draining and time-consuming enough, as it is.
But I have to say, even the most jaded WordPress users like me are ready for change and learning. That’s because WordPress is one of the most dynamic platforms there is. And WordCamp Philippines 2008 – the first of its kind to be held in Asia – promises to dispense the right amount of knowledge and information to WP users and developers alike.
Among the topics up for discussion are the Ways to Use WordPress, Video and Mobile Blogging, Cascading Style Sheets, Migrating to WP, Optimizing your WordPress Blog, and Blog Monetization, among others. Advanced users , on the other hand, will be able to share ideas on Best Practices in PHP Coding, Designing WP Themes, Developing WP Aggregator Sites, and so on.
Convinced? Sign on now to become part of Philippine blogging history. WordCamp Philippines 2008 is happening on September 6, 2008 at the DLSU College of St. Benilde, Taft Avenue, Manila.
The camp was initiated and organized by the Mindanao Bloggers with help from some sponsors.
