Attending any #WordCamp is valuable and influences
the ability to create content that is engaging and
empowering. WordCamp is associated with writing,
blogging and web development platforms which are
used globally. The spread of digital content influences
the thinking and actions of viewers and readers.
The simplicity of #WordPress allows even youth, teens
and young adults to develop dynamic sites and
potential reader interactivity. This is #DOPE
The recent WordCamp in Orlando, Florida focused on
the use of WordPress, its widgets, graphics, analytics,
domain development, Branding and online content
A digital application that is “what you see is what you
get,” and makes web/content development an enjoyable
and fun process. Developing ideas, stories, and innovation
on a literary level.
It is easier now more than ever for people to build
quality websites for blogging, business, sharing
information, commerce, content innovation and
sharing of family events. A few strokes of the keys,
registration, selecting a template, deciding what
to call your site, selecting photos and posting
content and you’re ready to go. So easy that even
children are doing it, and doing it well. That is #DOPE!
The beauty of using WordPress is its ease of use similar to Microsoft Word or even PowerPoint. All
that is needed is a basic understanding of using a
word processing application; some creativity and
a basic grasp of graphics and photos allows users
to start and publish content.
In a world of competition to be published, recognized,
followed, obtaining viral status, in an age where in higher education the “publish or perish” mentality is still strong. Writing brings notoriety and respect, and it encourages intellectual thought and the engagement of intellectualism. WordPress provides the platform and the tools to promote branding and developing a marketing strategy to obtain readers and viewers.
WordCamp conferences are global events that
encourage participation by all walks of life and skill levels.
Using WordPress does not require a college degree or a
programming certificate, just a desire to share content
in diverse ways using web development tools coordinated
with text, photos, graphics and widgets that allow the
website to come alive and provide a unique functionality.
