Organizer Role: Social Media & Recaps
Emily Barney is the Technology Development and Training Librarian at IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law, where she uses WordPress to host blogs and project websites for faculty, staff, and students.
How did you get involved in WordCamp?
I’ve been attending WordCamp Chicago since 2010. In 2011, I shared my notes on the site as a guest blogger after the weekend was done and was invited to join in the fun officially. From 2012-2014, I helped with social media and photography and in 2013 and 2014 I helped post interviews to the website.
This year in addition to managing the wordcampchicago twitter account and curating social content on storify, I’m posting recaps here from all the great social media content our attendees shared during the conference!
Tell us something else about yourself:
I’m always spinning plates with multiple projects, from home improvement to gardening, new websites to travel plans. Or I’m reading if I need a break. My photography and cooking sometimes appear together on my recipe blog The Kitchen Tourist (which runs on WordPress, of course).
