A-camping I will go!

If there’s one thing that WordPress users should look forward to every year, it’s WordCamp. It’s a time for WordPress lovers to come together and learn from the gurus. I attended last year’s camp, and came away with a lot of learning that I immediately applied to my blogs.

The most practical learning was how to back-up my blog files using the correct plug-ins. Thanks to Lyle Santos, one of the pioneer organizers of Philippine WordCamps, who patiently walked me through the stages. I realized it wasn’t all that hard.

This year, I go again as a camper somewhere in between basic and intermediate. Admittedly, I have a lot of things to learn. As a blogger and web content provider, opportunities to expand and update my knowledge are always welcome.

And the lineup of breakaway talks excites me! (Break-away talks are a good idea because last year, some of the sessions I had to sit through were too techie I almost [nose]bled to death. hehe). I am techie to a little extent (with emphasis on little), but heavy hardcore stuff like talks about complicated codes, hardware likeΒ video cards and the like are a bit too much for me. teehee.

WordCamp Philippines 2010

But the learning is just one part. This year, Mr. WordPress himself – Matt Mullenweg – is coming. And I’d love to see him, hear him talk in the flesh!

WordCamp Philippines 2010 happens on October 2, 2010 at La Salle CSB, Taft, Manila. For more information on registration and other details, visit WordCamp Philippines.
