Christmas Sweggings & WordCamp Speaking

Today’s blog post is Day 3 of First Noel Letters Countdown with a combo blog title of  Christmas Sweggings & WordCamp Speaking! 

Thursday night I was able to attend the local WordPress Meetup and it was great fun!

While at that Event I spied what are called Sweggings!  And it was a joy to learn my video from presenting at the November WordCamp Wilmington 2016 is the most watched video from the event!

Christmas Sweggings

While I did not see any Christmas Sweaters there I did spy some fun Holiday motif Sweggings (Sweater Leggings).  Over at Amazon, they have Sweggings Women’s Holiday Reindeer Sweater Leggings.  And there are these soft sweater leggings at American Eagle Outfitters.

See if you don’t start “seeing” them when out and about shopping or running errands.

WordCamp Wilmington 2016 Speaking

wordcampwilmington2016_speakerhelenritterspornfinalThe WordCamp Wilmington 2016 was the first WordCamp event held in Wilmington, North Carolina.  It was my first WordCamp to attend and very exciting to be accepted as a Speaker!  The two-day event was held November 5th & 6th.   The Event Organizers were fantastic!

If you use WordPress, and/or have any interest in WordPress the WordCamps are a GREAT way to get acquainted with it.  It is a vibrant community and I’m already looking ahead to 2017 WordCamp offerings.  Also, they are very reasonably priced!

Here is the link to view all of the videos recorded at the WordCamp Wilmington 2016 Event.

There were several dear friends who were most helpful in preparing to be a Speaker and their support was a real blessing.

One of the really exciting things from having been a presenter was the opportunity to talk with the other speakers at the Kick-Off Speakers Reception the evening before the Event.   During the two-day event getting to talk with other bloggers, and making new friends was a worthwhile weekend endeavor.  And on a side-note, it is so much fun to have additional new email blog subscribers to welcome here as AnchoredScraps.com!
