Last weekend I attended Wordcamp Australia 2008 where I made a short presentation about the opportunities that have opened up for me as a result of using WordPress as my blogging system including becoming a professional blogger earning a sizable income from my blogs and associated activities.
The best investment I ever made is the $USS5 I donated to WordPress founder Matt Mullenweg’s Paypal account when I first began using WordPress v1.2-mingus
There were plenty of interesting presentations and people I chatted with but going to Wordcamp Australia 2008 was worth it for 1 reason alone, to saw thanks to Matt Mullenweg for making WordPress such a great free piece of software because without it I wouldn’t be where I am today.
You can view my presentation below. I suggest clicking on the “Fullscreen” button (bottom navigation bar, 2nd from the right)
