Ooh LA L.A. … I’m speaking in New Orleans and at WordCampLA!

I’m extremely excited about September!

First, I get to go to New Orleans, LA, to speak at my very first National Conference! I’m conducting a three-hour presentation on web site development for small businesses at the ASBDC Annual Conference!

Incidentally, I had thought ASBDC stood for Association of Small Business Development Centers … however it is apparently an acronym that culled from part of the phrase “Representing America’s Small Business Development Centers.” Or something. I’m still not quite clear.

Wherever its name comes from, the ASBDC serves as the national conference for all of the Small Business Development Centers in the United States. I’m stoked to be going, let alone presenting!

Then, I’m flying straight from New Orleans back to L.A. to give another presentation at WordCampLA!

This will be my third WordCamp ever and my second speaking at one. (My first was WordCamp Phoenix, then I spoke at WordCampOC back in June. Both were awesome!) I am completely hooked on WordCamp. I think it is a reflection of my affection for WordPress itself. Truthfully, it’s nice being in a roomful of people who also think WordPress is fun and powerful and useful as … well, just really useful.

The best part about both of these conferences? Not only do I get to present, but I get to learn! A LOT!* Oh la la indeed!

*I realize that sounds uber-cheesy. But I don’t care. It’s true!
