Seattle WordCamp 2017 is November 4 and 5, hosted at the Seattle Convention Center.
You may be wondering, “What does a two-day convention about using WordPress have to do with my counseling needs?”
Actually, you may be surprised.
After gathering feedback from my clients over the past 17 years of being a private practice licensed counselor, you all have made it loud and clear that having relevant and recent information on this website is one of the main reasons you chose me as a counselor to help you, your family, or a colleague.
While you might have come across my Psychology Today profile, it was looking at my website and knowing that I updated my schedule and wrote personal blog posts that helped you feel that I was someone you could trust, and someone you could talk to.
As my new website for MyAllergyAdvocate.com gets ready to launch in January 2018, I was not surprised that designer Natalie McGuire has helped many companies just like mine operate smoothly on the WordPress hosting platform. I enjoy the ease of use, beautiful features, affordable options, and accessibility that WordPress has created, and I’m proud to say that Seattle Direct Counseling has been on the WordPress platform since 2009.
That being said, owning and maintaining this website is a labor of love. If you see something out of place, a feature that isn’t working quite right, or a glaring error, please feel free to point it out. I go under the hood and fix small errors myself, and I report the big errors to WP directly.
If you are in the greater Seattle area and have an interest in blogging or owning a small business on WordPress, I invite you to check out WordCamp. It’s a friendly, casual community with lots of support for newcomers as well as deep-dive options for developers and established business owners. Whether you are new to microblogging or a long-time user of e-commerce for business, WordCamp has something for everyone, and is a great weekend for networking with likeminded people.
