WordPress Mini-Interview

1.       When did you first become interested in WordPress?

I first became interested in WordPress when I created my initial portfolio website. At the same time, my boss in College was teaching me the in’s and out’s of the platform. I haven’t looked back – I work exclusively with WordPress in personal and professional projects, now.

2.       What motivated you to speak at WordCamp?

I use WordPress from many different perspectives – as a content creator and as a website designer. I hope that sharing my knowledge of the platform, I can help others!

3.       Why do you think WordPress is different from other web platforms?

WordPress is very user friendly once you’ve given it a fair chance. Even non-technical people can get a lot out of it! It’s also ideal for my web clients – I can pass on a website to them that’s easy for them to edit without my help.
