Editor's Notes

  1. Grandparents bought them Put in the tape Push play But they were often afraid. Kids figured it out Just push the buttons. No PB&J sandwiches in the slot
  2. I want to convince you that you can do this Use word,.. Not afraid of the internet? I know you want to do this or you wouldn't be here. Look Apple’s whole deal is make it easy for people to figure out. It can be intimidating. Lou.. Story
  3. People are swayed by their beliefs Kids believe they don’t like veggies. They BELIEVE it. Adults don’t want to admit a fear. Heck Babies can do it I must be really stupid! Let me say it again. I want to convince you that you can do this.
  4. So here you are at the beginning of WordCamp How many is this the first? Welcome: to the community Part of the value of coming here is the opportunity to learn and share and grow The community needs you! You say, what me? I don’t know anything. Every new person who asks a question forces somebody else to think about something.. Maybe in a different way than they did before.
  5. I can’t really teach you much in 40 minutes … You won’t remember what you don’t own. You hear it.. You think you know it.. But until you use it .. You won’t own it. I want to set you on the right path
  6. 62 years old. One computer class .. No commas Artist, produced big events, BCF, carson and barnes Adhd coach I started writing code by hand in 1999 and have been using WP Since 2005 WordPress version 1.5 I write a little code Been to several wordcamps Dirty little sec ret.. I don’t write fancy code like a lot of these guys. Somehow I think if I listen REALLY CAREFULLY.. Suddenly I’ll understand.. Like sitting a table in Mexico with a bunch of Mexican women chatting.. If I listen really carefully.. I’ll understand. Nope. How many of you already have WP for your NP? Are you still working with someone for support? Any ringers here? Feel free to ask questions as they come up. I’ll either answer it, or tell you it’s coming.. Or say.. See me later. Tommy 386 with parts from the junk pile in the computer lab in HS
  7. Tip 1 Write down the words .. Ask questions ask people Sometimes you find answers where you least expect it.. Maybe that person sitting next to you at lunch. Take notes.. Condesnse them soon
  8. How to: Make a page Save as a draft Or private And play
