Things I’ve Got To Try
Sometimes you have to speak things in existence so here are a few things on the bucket list that I would love to see happen in the next few months! #SpeakItIntoReality
I REALLY want to go to WordCamp US in Nashville, TN. I was actually just in Nashville, TN over the summer for a family reunion and it was a beautiful vibrant city that I would love to explore more of. I started blogging on Tumblr 6 years ago (as of about a week ago) and I quickly learned that WordPress is where it’s at and I started a site there and really got down to business. I now have two websites (this one and DCFunemployment) and will say that wordpress played a MAJOR part in something that’s truly changed my life for the better in so many ways. I have made incredible new friends, experienced awesome opportunities and shared the stories of incredible women! It has been an amazing journey and I can’t wait to see where it goes from here but I could also use some helping making the best of all my tools. (Please note: I received an entry into the Bluehost WordCamp US Giveaway, just for writing this post, yall know I love a contest!)
What: WordCamp is a community organized conference that takes place in cities around the world where WordPress enthusiasts meet to share knowledge about WordPress and the online platform it offers. At camp, plan to attend a range of sessions from plugins and theme developments to more complicated techniques and security. Since its inception in 2006, there have been more than 715 camps worldwide, spanning 6 continents. Can’t make it to WordCamp US? Find a WordCamp near you!

The Girlboss Rally
What: Every woman should feel like the boss of her life—no matter how she chooses to define success. Join Sophia Amoruso and the Girlboss team for a day of conversation that promises to be deeply insightful, refreshingly honest, unconventionally thought provoking, and judgement-free. We’ll talk about striving, failing, learning, and what’s going on in the world around us with the women we admire most — and trust, no two women on this stage share a singular definition of the word “success”.
