As content creators grow the need for training is increasing,
WordCamp conferences meet and many times exceed the
needs of  beginners, intermediate and veteran bloggers,
micro-bloggers, Podcasters and VBloggers.
As a speaker and participant of WordCamp conferences
a few hints before registering for any WordCamp.
You should already have certain expectations for your learning.
Having attended and spoken at several WordCamp events in
2017 the benefits are lasting and the friendships a lifetime.
The potential for continued collaborations are endless and
potentially life changing. There are different expectations
for each person if speaking or attending, there needs to
be an established plan that fits individual needs based on
the session or track.

Decide what your goals are as a content creator and how
you mesh or combine your plan to learn. The integration
of technology that can aid your business and personal
growth, build a Brand and Market yourself.
There is more to gaining readers, viewers and engagement
than a flashy web site, dazzling coding and eye stunning
photos, it takes planning and engagement.
How you're marketing your Brand and integrating
content as an engaging and interactive element makes
a difference in achieving the goals you have set.
Attending WordCamp assists in finding
out what products, services and resources can benefit
you and your customers.

This includes make sure you have plenty of business
cards, your marketing "pitch" is practiced and your
appearance matches your Brand.
Building a Brand creates future opportunities for
investments and expansion outside of normal business
lines. The benefit resulting from investing in attending
WordCamp may take time and work,
networking and building relationships.

As a content creator you represent your business so
consider the potential of building business relationships.
Never judge a person by attire, color or culture, gain
insight on how engaging during conversation and
interaction.
Events like WordCamp / KidCamp and others like
Bar Camp, EdCamp for educators provide
opportunities to expose youth and teens to
applying social skills and learning business skills
that are important in commerce, finance and
knowledge based careers.
KidCamp in WordCamp are growing because
the future is with children and teens they
too have a stake in building their Brand and
their content. They are establishing businesses
and building awareness for their contributions.
Youth are learning how important building
relationships in business are and the
connections to future careers.

Intellectual design is key because knowledge
based careers are expanding. Through KidCamp
events youth are building self-confidence,
self-awareness, self-determination and
self-respect. There is no room for fear and
doubt because if  knowledge is lacking youth
and teens are accessing YouTube
to educate and enlighten themselves.
Today’s WordCamp means youth and teens
should have business cards to understand the
experience of participation, the excitement of
being present and seen as a contributor and
a future speaker.

Technology contains and embraces diversity so
youth and teens also must model that. WordCamp
venues contain great potential to be an awesome
experience. To build life-long and generational
intellectual learners. Access to wealth resources,
intellectual design, community activism through
digital community engagement.

Building entrepreneurial vision that allows the
embracing of adaptation, change and growth.
WordCamp is unique, engaging, interactive and
empowering.
