What’s been your best experience with WordPress?
There are too many to list but socializing at WordCamps and meetup events is among the best parts of the WordPress community.
Tell us a bit about your WordCamp Ottawa talk.
People who blog on their own and are struggling to figure out how to make money with it should attend. This is a “lighting talk” so it will be a short introduction to some of the newer trends in monetization.
What’s your favourite thing about attending WordCamps?
Getting to know so many great people and learning useful tactics.
What’s exciting you about WordPress in 2016?
The continual expansion of possibilities.
