WordCamp Seattle is what I consider my home WordCamp. Although I never lived right in Seattle, I was always within a drive. Currently I’m a bit further away, 3.5 hours each way, but still, it’s my local WordCamp.
The very first time I spoke at a WordCamp was Seattle 2011. The next year I was lead organizer.
WordCamp Seattle, November 9-10, 2019
So what’s this thing about podcasting?
Let’s Do Some Podcasting
One of the roles I will be playing this year is the Podcast Wrangler. In a nutshell, I am setting up a space where anyone attending who has their own podcast can grab a guest and record their own show. How cool to open up your podcast and say, Hey we are recording this one at WordCamp Seattle.
You can pick a slot to fill or learn more over on this post on the WordCamp Seattle blog.
Let’s Learn Some Podcasting
My second role is as a speaker. If you are thinking about starting a podcast to grow your brand, here’s what I will be talking about:
- How a podcast can help you build your brand.
- Ways to overcome the barriers to podcasting and how to start if you have limited resources.
- Options for microphones and, for the DIY’er, tools for production and editing.
- Repurposing your podcast content.
- Tips for guest interviews, show notes vs transcripts and video vs audio.
So if you haven’t already purchased your ticket, you can get a full two days, swag, lunch, great sessions and conversation for only $50.
And if you already plan on being there, make sure to stop by the Podcasting Corner and say hi.
