I'm speaking at Press Publish in Portland, March 28th 2015 (+ a coupon code!)

I've been asked to speak at Press Publish, an awesome digital publishing conference in Portland that's happening on March 28, 2015. Presented by Automattic (the company behind WordPress.com), it's a one-day event designed to inspire and educate anyone who wants to dive in with a WordPress blog.

I'll be doing a Q&A session with Jen Mylo, an Automattic staffer who I know from waaaaay back in the days at the dawn of blogging. We used to go to blogger meetups back in 2001, when "we all know what a blog is" used to be enough of a thing in common to justify everyone getting along. Can you believe there was ever such a time?!

Jen is going to be interviewing me on stage, talking about stuff like:

  • How the fuck did I end up building a publishing business out of weddings, when I didn't really even like planning my own wedding?
  • How I've used social media to extend the Offbeat Empire's reach
  • What publisher challenges I deal with
  • The tools and methods I use to deal with those challenges

The details

Your ticket also gets you a 1-year subscription to the WordPress.com Premium upgrade worth $99 — so $30 is a major deal. I'm already beyond excited for the conference (it's a major honor to be asked to speak!), and I'm going to get extra triple excited if there are some Offbeat Empire readers there. Hope to see some of you soon!

If you're coming, be sure to leave a comment… I'm crossing my fingers to meet some of y'all in Portland, since Lovesick Expo doesn't get there…
