Speaking at Dallas WordCamp 2009

Wordcamp Dallas 2009I’m speaking at this year’s WordCamp in Dallas again later this week.

WordCamp is a mini-convention for WordPress and blogging enthusiasts. Some of the content is WordPress-centric, but other content is applicable to bloggers in general, such as how to promote your blog and other stuff.

I’ll be speaking on how to use social image sharing services for promotion. Social media sites such as Flickr allow people to publish and share their photos with many other people, and the site is well-constructed in terms of search engine optimization, so posting images there helps get media distributed all over. Using Flickr can help one gain more attention, inbound links, and overall search rankings.

I’ve spoken on using Flickr for promotion and optimization before, and I’ve written on details of image optimization here a number of times.

I’d further recommend blogging to everyone – I first started blogging here on the Natural Search Blog as a guest, after Stephan Spencer invited me, and it eventually changed my overall career path. Be sure to check out Stephan’s articles on blog optimization, btw, since he’s pretty much the top authority out there on the subject.

There’s still a few seats left for Dallas WordCamp – sign up before they’re all gone!

    I’m really excited about attending WordCamp Dallas! My main strength is writing, but I do (hack) designing with WordPress and MODx. Anyway, I’m REALLY HOPING to hook up with some real XHTML/CSS coders, graphics designers, SEMers, and video experts who are interested in hooking up with a real writer (ME). Please visit my website, http://PageBench.com. I’ve got over 20 years experience in technical writing and copy writing, with clients that include IBM, Halliburton, Hamilton Sunstrand, Textron, and many others. I earned a BA in English a lifetime ago, and I speak Spanish and Portuguese too.

    I’ll be wearing a Florida Marlins jersey!

    At your service,
