I did it. I spoke at WordCamp US. All those rehearsals, all that planning — they paid off. When I got up on stage, I saw my teammates’ faces in the front row and in the way back, and then I looked around the rest of the room, to the faces of all these WordPress … Continue reading I am hooked
I presented the following at WordCamp US 2015. Enjoy!
You’re an awesome blogger, right? You never run out of ideas, you work your full time job, exercise daily, manage your household, and still publish regularly on your blog. You post exciting content every day and can sustain your level of blogging forever and ever, amiright?

The longer your blog sits untouched, the more pressure you feel to make your next post AWESOME to make up for being a slacker. Which of course means you now have writer’s block, because really, who can write under the pressure of having to write something amazing? So you don’t post. Your visitors leave. Your views trickle down to zero. You feel like a terrible blogger and you go cry in a corner.
It doesn’t have to be this way.

I have practiced aloud at least a dozen times. But I’m still reading my words from a page — I do not … Continue reading Trying not to freak out
