Why WordPress? Why do you like using WordPress? I work with WordPress because it’s simple and highly flexible. I love that anyone can use it, and that it can be used to help create an online presence for anyone’s ideas no matter how big or small.
Why did you decide to speak at WordCamp Ottawa? I love teaching and I love WordPress. Organizing and speaking at my hometown’s WordCamp seemed like the natural thing to do.
What is your talk going to be about? In my talk, Typography in Web Design, I’m going to discuss some typography basics and best practices as well as show you some current typographic trends in web design. I’m also going to show you a few ways to add groovy Google Fonts to your WordPress website.
I am also participating in the panel, Building Your Business, Cause, or Brand using WordPress. I will be commenting on my experiences using WordPress for a non-profit organization.
What is your favourite WordPress plugin or theme? Why? BackupBuddy! It makes migrating and restoring websites a simple and relatively pain-free experience.
