I love going to WordCamps, they really are excellent events and WordCamp Bristol was no exception. Held from Friday to Sunday, there really was something for every WordPress user and I learnt so much and was inspired by so many things.
Today was a first for me, a marketing workshop with the team at Really Helpful Marketing in order to try and help us (Highrise Digital) to improve our positioning and the marketing of our products and services.
I have always been slightly sceptical about this sort of thing, but I must say that I have been converted and really enjoyed the day.
This weekend saw the next in a series of conferences about WordPress (the software I use to build websites with) happening in Bristol. This weekend was the very first WordCamp Bristol and was an opportunity to visit a city which I have not been to before.
Having booked a lovely looking AirBnB house this time I decided to have a little road trip, picking up a friend and fellow WordPress enthusiast Jonny. The journey down to Birmingham to collect Jonny and also onward to Bristol was wonderful with no traffic issues. We have one stop near to Bristol to get some lunch.
WordPress allows users to manage their content through the WordPress admin screens. This means users can add, edit and delete content and media and manage their sites without the need to ask developers for every change.
WordPress is a content management system, but all too often it can end up becoming a content mismanagement system when editing and managing the site is just too difficult.
