We asked our speaker Claire Savage, from Claire Savage Editorial, a few questions about WordPress and WordCamps.
How are you currently using WordPress?
My copywriting business website runs on WordPress, and I also manage a separate creative writing WordPress blog, which focuses on my prose and poetry work.
What role are you using WordPress as?
As a business and author, I’m using it to promote my brand and to engage with other WordPress users.
What excites you most about WordPress?
The fact that it’s pretty straightforward to use – even the non-techy people can manage it! It’s great to be able to have complete control over the content you create.
Would you consider yourself to be active within the WordPress Community?
Yes, in that I blog very regularly and follow and comment on other blogs, but I haven’t attended any WordPress meet-ups or WordCamps.
How do you think we can improve the WordPress community in Northern Ireland?
Have groups outside Belfast. Main reason I’ve never been to a meet-up is the travelling involved…
What made you want to get involved with WordCamp Belfast?
I wanted to highlight the importance of creating good written content on blogs and websites, as writing often gets overlooked in favour of design.
What are you most looking forward to at WordCamp Belfast?
Meeting new WordPress users and picking up some new tips on how to use WordPress.
