What to Expect at WordCamp New York
From Gutenberg blocks to business and marketing, this WordCamp has a lot to offer anyone using WordPress to power a website. This includes anyone who operates a nonprofit organization.
This year, you can find talks such as:
- Next-Level Blogging: How to Run Your Blog Like a Business
Anyone who has a blog for virtually any purpose would benefit from this talk by Andrea Zoellner. Boosting SEO, monetizing and speed optimization are just a few things you’ll learn.
- Don’t Fear the Block
As Gutenberg became the staple of WordPress editing when version 5.0 was released, many peopled balked. But John Eckman will go over how Gutenberg is useful and what you can do to get the most out of the tool.
- SEO: Getting All Green in Yoast
It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of Yoast SEO. And Chad Lewine will go into detail about how to turn Yoast’s “lights” all green for creating sharp content.
- Slaying the Content Monster
Learn how to plan, create and repurpose content with Sue Allen Clayton. In this talk, you’ll learn a variety of methods to keep you on task for engaging an audience.
- What to Do Once You Launch a New Website
It takes quite a bit more to create an amazing website than just setting it up. Sandy Edwards will go into the different strategies you need to learn to take that new site to greater heights.
There are so many awesome talks going on at WordCamp New York that I am quite jealous of Patrick. Not only does he get to hang out in the Big Apple, but he’ll also have access to a myriad of great speakers.
Fun Facts About New York
New York has a very long history in the United States. Not only is it one of our biggest cities in the United States, but it’s often the backdrop of many movies and television shows.
So while at WordCamp, don’t forget to take a few moments and explore the massive city.
Some things you might find interesting include:
- The first bridge to use cabling made from steel, the Brooklyn Bridge is among the longest in the World. And it’s common to see it in a variety of movies; too many to mention in a blog post!
- Established in 1803, the New York Post is the longest still-running newspaper in the US. Although the print version isn’t as popular as it once was, the website is thriving.
- If you’re looking for culture, New York has 155 museums and about 400 art galleries. This includes the renowned Guggenhein Museum. You could spend weeks exploring Museum Mile, which runs down 5th Avenue between 70th and 104th streets.
New York is one of the most prominent places in the US for tourism whether you live in America or are traveling from across the globe.
See You in New York!
This camp promises to have a lot of great information and amazing people in attendance. So don’t miss out on meeting up with Patrick and grabbing something from our table.
As always, I would like to take a moment to thank all of the organizers, volunteers, sponsors and attendees for helping to make this an amazing community.
