WordCamp Victoria 2012

What  a treat to be invited to speak at WordCamp Victoria.  January 14th, 2012 will be my first WordCamp and I’m looking forward to geeking out with fellow WordPress enthusiasts at the University of Victoria. My pals Chris Burdge, Paul Holmes, Catherine Novak, Janis La Couvée, Raul Pacheco and George Plumley will be there along with a dozen other awesome experts. Will you be joining us?

My topic: Take Your BuddyPress Community from Blah to TA-DAH!
(Sorry about the rhyme. I’m trying to wean my alliteration habit and it’s manifesting as rhymes these days.)

Level: Intermediate

Description: Creating your own online community requires more effort than simply installing the BuddyPress plug-in. In this session, I will share six strategies to nurture a vibrant BuddyPress community from my book The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Creating a Social Network. From sparking great conversations to taking thing off-line, I’ll show you how to take your BuddyPress community from blah to TA-DAH using examples from successfully established communities.

I’m always looking for existing BuddyPress communities to showcase in my teaching. Feel free to invite me to visit your community in the comments.

      Thanks, Trinette. I’m glad you love the topic. I’m pretty passionate about it my self. WordCamp is an annual event and it happens in many different cities but Victoria’s a favourite because the organizers do such a great job with their events.  I hope you can join us another year.

    I’m very interested to see what the new Facebook changes will mean for people. I hope it’s user friendly.

    Coach handbags are extremely popular and they have been this way ever since they have come on the scene in 1941. There are so many styles to choose from and they are always coming up with new bags and accessories each year. Sometimes they even have retro bags that are great for those that like the classic look.

    The prices for the bags range from 150.00 to upwards of 450.00 but I have stumbled up some great discounts at this place called the Crossings in Tannersville in Pennsylvania. While vacationing in the Pocono’s in Michael Kors Handbags northeast PA, I was out with some friends of my deciding where to go shopping. One of my friends who is a resident there, suggested that we go to the outlet in Tannersville, PA.

    When we got there, I noticed that the place was huge with so many stores all in a row. As soon as we parked the car, I looked at the place and spotted a Coach Outlet. I was so excited and decided to make this our first stop. When I walked through the door, there were Coach bags everywhere. Being that I keep up with all the latest Coach bags via them sending me emails on the latest styles, one of the first things I noticed was that they did not have all the latest styles.

    However, if you are a Coach bag lover like I am, you will feel like you are in heaven. As I browsed the purses, I checked the prices and the discounts were amazing. In addition, I was given another 10% off coupon from the clerk at the front door. I went crazy in this store and bought more Hamilton Totes bags then I should have, but I was happy. I never knew a place like this existed.

    I always assumed the only way to buy these bags was from their official stores or at one of their stores that you can sometimes Michael Kors Handbags find at the local mall but I guess my mind has been opened. So, if you ever in Tannersville, PA and are looking for a Coach store, then check out The Crossings Outlet in Tannersville. You will be amazed at the discounts you can find.
