We have fantastic addition to our Speaker line-up for WordCamp Raleigh with Patrick O’Keefe, founder of iFroggy Network, a network of websites covering various interests.
“Building Community Around Your WordPress Blog”
Blogs can be communities – in fact, most of the most visited blogs on the internet are communities.
Learn how you can encourage the community around your WordPress blog to grow.
This presentation will include things you can do within the blog format, new features and add-ons you can install and how blogs and deeper community areas, like forums, can benefit from one another.
Patrick has been managing online communities since 2000 and is the author of “Managing Online Forums,” a practical guide to managing online social spaces.
He has been responsible for the cultivation of communities like phpBBHacks.com, KarateForums.com and PhotoshopForums.com.
He blogs about online community at ManagingCommunities.com and his favorite record label at BadBoyBlog.com, plus more at patrickokeefe.com.
Patrick’s past presentations include everything from WordPress & Blogging to Social Media to Online Communities, for SWSXi, Blog World & New Media Expo and more.
