Ah, WordCamp Boston. Some days, everything seems to work out juuuust right. You get a great parking space. You arrive at an event and the first face you see is a friendly one. There are lots of snacks. And as you move through the day, every conversation is meaningful and fun.
That was WordCamp Boston for me. First of all, you have to know that all WordCamps are amazing–they’re chock-full of interesting information, smart, quirky people, and helpful vendors proffering kickass swag. (WCBOS had ice cream, too, so you couldn’t go wrong.) However, WCBOS was a biggie for me. While I’ve done talks at meetups, this was my first foray outside of my home WordCamp in Little Rhody. But this is just the beginning, people. You were here to see it.
This year, WCBOS was held at Boston University, and the facilities were excellent. I have to shout out to the volunteers who ran the event: awesome job, everyone! WordCamp could not happen without these dedicated, tireless people. WordCamp volunteers give their heart and soul to these events.
I went to several workshops and talks on Saturday (stay tuned for links because they were fabulous.) Then on Sunday, I went to more fabulous talks and then I got to give my own talk, which was scheduled in the last slot of the last day of WCBOS.
No pressure, right?
I will be presenting how to Blog like a Boss at 4:40 pm in Balcony 2. Last talks of the day, LET’S DO THIS! #WCBos pic.twitter.com/lCm2IcX0AH

Let me tell you, the people who came to this talk were THE BOSS. At the end of two solid days of learning and networking and swagging and snacking, I thought people would probably ditch my talk like Tom Sawyer ditched school to go swimming. But not WordPress people. They stuck it out. In fact, the room was FULL. They listened, they had great questions, and we all enjoyed that last session of WCBOS.
If you’d like to download the slides from this presentation, here they are! I hope this presentation helps you learn to blog like a boss, with purpose, efficiency, promotability, and PERSONALITY!
