Getting Ready for WordCamp Milwaukee 2!

My goodness, it’s less than a month till the second WordCamp Milwaukee!

<puts on organizer hat>

During and after last year’s inaugural event, veteran WordCampers were telling us that WordCamp Milwaukee was one of the best and most informative camps they’d been to. So, of course we had to make it bigger and better for 2013!

First off, we added another half-day to the extravaganza: Foundation Friday (June 7, 2013) is going to be a set of workshops aimed at WordPress beginners: We’ll have WordPress 101 classes for new users — bloggers, business folk, anyone who is making content for the web using WordPress.

But that’s not all! <see, I’ve got my organizer/promoter hat on!>  If you’ve been using WordPress for a while, and wonder what it might be like to design themes or develop plugins for WordPress–come to Foundation Friday! We’re having a development track too!

After Foundation Friday, you’ll still have two full days (June 8-9) of WordPress learning to enjoy! Plus a repeat of the fabulous Saturday After-Party, lunch both days, the Happiness Bar (to get your specific problems addressed), and still more wonderfulness!

Right after lunch on Saturday (June 8), I will be offering a mini-preview of my next book project, talking about “Building Authority – and Audience – with WordPress and Google Author.” Building your reputation and demonstrating your authority as an expert in your particular niche can be a difficult task. Google is trying to help you, though. I’ll show you how to put your high-quality content at the top of the findability charts, with WordPress and the Google Authorship program.

Learn more about WordCamp Milwaukee, and buy your tickets at the website. And hey, if you need some help with the price, type in ‘McCallister’ for a discount when you register.

Look forward to seeing you June 7-9 at Bucketworks!

  1. See ya there, Mike!

    I’ll do my best to tone down whatever the heck I talk about.

    Also, I’ll try to yell at people less.

    Or more.

    Either one.

    1. Great Pete!

      You’re a whole day after me, so do whatever you want to do. Since you’re in the right-after-lunch slot, you may want to yell at people more–so they don’t fall asleep. I’m not sayin’ I’m doing that, though.

    1. Laura,
      While we’d love to see you in Milwaukee, there are WordCamps going on somewhere in the world every weekend. Visit WordCamp Central for the current schedule.

      Many WordCamp sessions are also recorded and posted at

      If you’ve got a particular topic (or problem you’re having) that you’d like covered here on Notes, let me know. I take requests. 😎
      Happy Blogging,
