High Ed Web 2017: A Hart(ford) for Higher Ed

High Ed Web 2017: A Hart(ford) for Higher Ed

I’ve only been home for a few hours, but the lessons and memories of HighEdWeb 2017 are still fresh on my mind.  I feel like one of the few people on earth that actually recharge at a conference, but after WPCampus earlier in the year, I was ready to get back out and network with my fellow web […]

Level Up Your WordPress Security

Level Up Your WordPress Security

I had an amazing time speaking and networking at the #WPCampus Event in Buffalo this past weekend.  I was fortunate to be able to share some insight on the realm of Security, and make it (hopefully) more than a fruitless, confusion quest. First of all, here are my slides: Level Up Your WordPress Security from […]

WPCampus

I got a crash course in the world of “higher education” when I joined the amazing team at the Vanderbilt Web Communications department. Higher-Ed was a brand new world to me, and while a lot of the same issues carry over from “normal” web design, there’s a whole different set of things to worry about. […]

Upcoming Conferences to Consider

Upcoming Conferences to Consider

I love conferences. There is a certain vibe you can only get from being in a room with people who are just as excited as you about a subject.  And not just because there’s great speakers: some of my favorite times at a conference come from the “hallway track” – getting out of the session […]

Do you ever have one of those experiences that, even a few days after, still has you thinking?  Maybe it’s a meeting with a friend, and they said just what needed to be said to get you motivated.  Or maybe it’s knowing that there’s a group of people that are going through the same things […]

New Media Expo: A Recap

For the past few days, I’ve been in beautiful Las Vegas for the 2013 New Media Expo.  You may know this event previously as “BlogWorld”, but this year NMX took Vegas by storm.  It backed up to #CES, and there was a lot of overlap with events and some attendees sticking around to attend both. […]

New Media Expo: The Introduction

New Media Expo: The Introduction

If you know me, you know that New Media Expo (formerly BlogWorld) is my absolute favorite event to attend during the year.  I average about six conferences a year (between the various WordCamps, PodCamps, and other camps), but there’s none that I’d rather attend. I’ll be blogging quite a bit about the conference here, uploading […]

I know, I know. I haven’t posted in a long time here, but I promise I’m working up some new stuff. It takes time, and that’s something I haven’t had a lot of lately. To tide you over, here’s some fantastic news for anyone who’s in NC: I’ll be speaking at NCDevCon, one of North […]

BlogWorldExpo Interactive Map

I’ve recently found Google Map’s “Map Builder”, and realized that with BlogWorld nearing the 2 week warning it would be handy to visualize where I’d be going, staying, travelling to, etc.  So, here’s a Google Map to help myself (and anyone who can use it) out.

Breaking Silence

So, I’ve been really quiet on here for a bit.  I know, I know – I keep saying all these things about how I want to blog more and never do.  That’s my bad, for sure. So, that said, I wanted to give you guys an update on how things are going.  People forget that […]
