I’m writing this while at the Raleigh-Durham International airport and although I’m anxious to get back home, leaving North Carolina feels different than most of my return trips from WordCamps.

I’ve just attended #WCRaleigh where I also presented “Curating Content in WordPress” and it was an excellent event.

WordCamp Tampa 2016 Recap

Last week I had the rare opportunity of being able to drive to a WordCamp rather than fly. That’s because I attended WordCamp Tampa held on the campus of the Unversity of South Florida (USF), which was just over an hour from my home in Sarasota.
