WordCamp Chicago Mini-Interview

When did I become interested in WordPress?

In 2008 our clients were asking for blogs and when we discovered WordPress we knew it was the answer to our content prayers.

What motivated you to speak at WordCamp?

I’m a business owner first, and I know many small business owners come to WordCamp to learn about the platform.  I think people come away with so much tech knowledge and they are blinded by shiny objects.  I like to bring the business application to the forefront so that purposeful implementation happens when WordCamp is over.

Why do you think WordPress is different from other platforms?

Three words- community, Community, and COMMUNITY.  The people who contribute to the success of WordPress have an impact on lives and the economy at a scale that is incalculable.
