Announcing WordCamp Nashville


I’d like to let everyone know that WordCamp Nashville is coming April 21, 2012 to Watkins College of Art, Design & Film (9AM-4PM), and you can now get your tickets, apply to be a speaker, or become a sponsor. I’m very excited about this as I love WordPress, am involved with this WordCamp and Nashville meetup group as an organizer/volunteer. Most of the websites I build (including this one) are WordPress based, and I have been involved in this great community for over 5 years now. And did you know:  that as of August 2011 14.7% of the top million websites in the world are run on WordPress, and the latest data shows that 22 out of every 100 new active domains in the US are running WordPress? So come on out for a day of WordPress knowledge in Nashville!
