WordCamp Weekend


Inn at the Mill

Scott and I went to WordCamp this weekend in Fayetteville.  Now, I do have a WP blog but haven't used it yet, and thought this would help me decide whether to move my blog or not.  I attended the blogger section and Scott the developer section.  I think I needed the "baby" section because I was a bit lost honestly.  Think I was one of maybe 2 people without a laptop or iPad.  There were some great presenters!  When the acronyms started flying I knew I was in trouble.  Plus- the Twittering was out of control.  I have a Twitter ID and know how to check in, but rarely do.  The only time I have my cell phone in my hand is when I'm out of the house, which usually means I'm driving so not going to be "tweeting" anyone.   I felt like a dork because I just found out what a hashtag is.   We met some fun folks, some actually live in our neck of the woods so maybe I'll have to start chirping (tweeting, whatever.)
 (I did find out I was doing some things right that I didn't even know about which made me feel pretty good.) 

Pretty Poppies in the Square

The weekend was so beautiful that we couldn't make it through all the workshops.  We'd taken our bikes so we dodged out after lunch and rode bikes from the square down Dickson street, up to the campus.  Wow has it changed since we went there!  Fayetteville itself has really changed too.  When we were up there I think there was almost nothing to do.  Now it would be hard to be a student with any money in your pocket and not be out having fun.  (Of course, I had none of that- money that is- in college!)   We drove by our old dorms, apartments, and haunts to see what they look like now.

 We did make it back for the after party which was fun.  (Especially because we both won doorprizes!)

Anyway... Scott says WordPress is pretty durn cool and thinks I should switch, I think I just need a week or more to make the conversion so it will be awhile.  Hey, do any of you WP users have any tips or reasons why I should go through all this?
