Announcing Press Publish with two upcoming dates in Portland, OR in March 2015 and Phoenix, AZ in April 2015.
A new, one-day conference for bloggers who use WordPress — or want to switch. With inspirational talks by successful bloggers and workshops by the people who make WordPress.com and Jetpack — all designed to help you level up your skills and get fired up about your blog.
We’re ridiculously excited about the speakers we have lined up, from personal bloggers to published authors from all over the country. Their successes and unique points of view represent a diverse range of the possibilities that come with sharing your voice with WordPress.
Want to attend the Phoenix event and save a bit off the conference price? Use discount code PHX40 for 40% off. The price includes a one-year subscription to the WordPress.com Premium upgrade, a $99 value.
Hope to see you there! (I’ll be giving a tutorial in Phoenix on how to pick the perfect theme.)

I recently joined Connect Coworking as a Flock member.
Located in the historic Rialto Building at Tucson’s hottest corner, 5th and Congress, Connect is redefining the local coworking landscape. It’s a big step up from previous offerings—in many ways. If you haven’t been in yet, schedule a visit to see it for yourself.
A few recent photos from work and life at Connect.

WordPress Community: Choose Your Own Adventure is an inspiring talk at WordCamp Orange County 2014 by Andrea Middleton. Must watch!
I presented at WordCamp Las Peñitas in May 2014 on the _s WordPress starter theme; how it gives theme designers and developers a thousand-hour head start.
Slides (in Spanish) are available here: Ahorra 1000 horas con Underscores. For information on _s in English, check out these Underscores articles on ThemeShaper.
It was a fun and impactful event! I’m happy to see the WordPress in Latin America growing and strong, and it was great to connect with the Nicaraguan open source community. Maybe next year we’ll see a WordCamp, somewhere like Guatemala?
