Terran Birrell is running a WordPress session at PodCamp!  If you missed this session, comment below to interact with campers who attended. Here is a list of topics we covered:

  • vs.
  • option of training or paying for customized blog/web site
  • how to install wordpress
  • cheap hosting/bluehost
  • why do people hate godaddy?
  • wordpress doesn’t play well with windows hosting/use linux
  • paying for support (ex:
  • free themes
  • using thesis
  • premium WP themes/advantages
  • plug-ins

I popped out before the end of the session to catch some of the YouTube session down the hall. Let us know if I missed some topics!

I’m here at PodCamp Western Mass 3. A spinoff of what Boston started a few years back, it is an “un-conference” about all things social media. Sessions and breakout are happening throughout the Horace Mann Center at Westfield State College. I sat in on “Social Media 101” and “P.R. & Social Media.” Lunch happens shortly and then there are many sessions to choose from in the afternoon.  Here are a few pics from PodCamp. I have to get back to learning.

More blogging from camp soon, Meghan
