I’m Going Camping!

Ha ha ha ho ho! Or, as we used to say in my younger days, “That’s so funny, I forgot to laugh. That’s about as funny as a screen door in a submarine.”

But I really am going to camp tomorrow — the kind I like — the kind that happens in a hotel and has computers in. I’m going to WordCamp Louisville, where we learn how to make our WordPress blogs sit up and do tricks. Knowing the limits of my ambition, I doubt you’ll see any change here, but I’ll know how to make changes. That’s the important part.

The talk I’m most interested in is one on how to make WordPress fast. Mom is on dial-up, and she can’t always load my site. I’ve unplugged some of my plug-ins, but it’s still pokey for her. I hope I can rectify that, or at least ameliorate the problem. See, I’m already talking smarter!

If you can’t make tomorrow’s Camp, but you’re interested in hitting one, go to WordCamp Central for a list of Camps scheduled and planned but not finalized.

Finally, my eternal thanks to fellow author Red Tash, who first put me onto WordCamp. Red, you’re the greatest!


I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    My boss, Jason Falls, is speaking at Wordcamp tomorrow. Have fun! (I’d rather go real camping, personally.)

      He’s going to tell us how to have a kick-ass blog! I will be the Bruce Lee of blogdom!

      And I’d rather eat rubber chicken that go real camping. I have a deal with the bears: I don’t spend the night in the woods, and they don’t come into my house and eat my porridge. …Wait….
