Attending WordCamp Chicago Yay!

WordCamp Chicago

This is my first venture out since being ill, but I’m looking forward to spending a day with fellow WordPress users and developers.  Surprisingly, I had alot of anxiety about being going into the city.  I think in the back of my mind I’m still dealing with the reality of how close I was to being hospitalized in NYC.  Silly right?  Well, I did some bawling before I left, gathered myself together and drove down here.  Good times await.

This is the inaugural event, with over 100 people in attendance for 2 days.  I don’t get the opportunity in my day job to rub elbows with the developer community that often, nor with writers, so it’s a real treat that Jacinda was a-ok with me taking the day to do this.

Hopefully I’ll pick up some tips & tricks to use with my personal and family blogs, as well as MyCookingShow.
