Welcome to the mycamp.rocks newsletter! I hope you are enjoying these as much as I am writing them! 😄 I try to be: (1) brief (2) ad free and (3) target to organizers, speakers, and/or attendees.
Thank you! 🙏🏻
You can find this issue on the mycamp.rocks website: https://mycamp.rocks/issue-31
Today’s Topic: What to expect in future mycamp.rocks issues, WPGameShow And #WCUSinSouthFlorida.
Future Topics 😊
I hope everyone is well, and it’s been trying times this last month. Things will continue to be challenging for a long time for all of us to varying degrees. I wanted to let you that I will be continuing to produce newsletters although having them out “every Tuesday morning” might still be a challenge. Thanks to a few of you who asked about them! Really appreciate the support!
Moving forward I think it makes sense for the short-term focus be on tips for organizators, speakers, and attendees regarding virtual and online events.
Do you have any tips to share regarding how to speak, organize, or be a good attendee for online conferences, webinars, and meetups (many have gone to technologies like Zoom, although as I’ll hopefully cover soon… Zoom has some problems). Let me know and I’ll be happy to share them with over 200 subscribers of this newsletter. Thank you! 🙏
I am going to trying something new to hope combat the isolation that many are experiencing – a weekly WPGameShow that is 100% online. We tested this last Sunday at WordCamp San Antonio and it was an initial success!
The idea is that we want contestants to signup and commit to being there for 60-90 minutes Sundays. Prescreening folks is important right now to prevent trolls and to keep things family friendly. The audience can watch but very often can participate as well on a lower level.
For more information please check out wpgame.show.
Need Your Support!
As a favor to me, can you help give us the “popular vote” and support South Florida being a possible city for WordCamp US 2020? We have a website with reasons, testimonials, videos, and more.
We need you to go to that page and click the Twitter link at the bottom… if you have a testimonial or show of support SUBMIT that and we will add it to the site. Or tweet anything with hashtag #WCUSInSouthFlorida and #WCUS.
Thank you in advance and I hope to share more on this soon.
Misc. Stuff 🤷♂️
These tips were written and/or gathered by David Bisset, someone who’s been helping organizing conferences (such as WordCamp Miami, but others too) and meetups for over a decade. He’s still learning so share any of your tips and it might be included in a future newsletter.
