Lack of tech skills led me to find a local WordPress Meet Up group and my first meeting was a churros night at a local café! How lucky can you get … first taste of churros with a relaxed group of ‘experts’ at my disposal. Perfect way to learn and connect with like-minded locals.

Last weekend that group hosted a Sunshine Coast Wordcamp, or conference, and as I had the joy of a free blog I volunteered on the registration table. Maybe the collision with Mother’s Day wasn’t so skilful but I met delightful people, learnt and a fellow volunteer has writing tips she is willing to share. Technology is a tool to help create a sense of community between us internationally and locally – so the message here is to connect with others!
