Cheesy in Philly

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

I ate a grilled cheese with mac & cheese on it today. I did other stuff too, but that was definitely a highlight. I fly home tomorrow. Trip details soon.

Goodnight, Philly.

Philly from my hotel room

I made it to Philly today in time to hang with some coworkers, eat a delicious grilled cheese sandwich & some cookies in Reading Terminal Market, then swing by the WordCamp US dinner tonight to kick things off. And what I’ve seen of Philly so far is great. I hope I can find time to do swing by a few of the touristy spots while I’m here.

My day at WCUS starts bright & early tomorrow. I’ll be on the tweets (@WordCampUS & #wcus) and it’s going to be a great day! But first, I need to sleep… since I have to be up in less than six hours.

Philadelphia Bound!

WordCamp US Volunteer Site BadgeI have to leave my house just after 6am tomorrow to get to the airport in time for my flight to Philly. It’ll be my first time in the city and also my first time at WordCamp US! (It’s technically everyone’s first, since it’s the inaugural one, but still. I’ve only ever been to WordCamp in DFW so far.)

I’m volunteering at WCUS and will be the person behind the tweets (see: @WordCampUS & #wcus) & some other cool stuff I’ll mention later. 😉

If you’ll be there, say hi! (You can still grab a ticket!) Or if you’re not nearby, check out the livestream. It’s going to be a great weekend! And I hope I get to see some of Philly while I’m there too! 😀

See you at WordCamp US, Bloggers!

I shared some reasons bloggers & writers should attend WordCamp US in Philly next month over on the WCUS blog today.

You should probably grab a ticket & come hang out!

WordCamp US & a big ol’ blog

I had the privilege of posting on’s news blog (with 22 million followers!) yesterday about WordCamp US. (Very cool and a bit nerve-racking!)

And not only did I post about WCUS, I’ll also be there along with a bunch of other awesome people, so you should snag a ticket & come hang out in Philly next month!

See you in December, Philly!

I’m visiting Philadelphia for the first time ever next month! I’ll be there for WordCamp US, plus any touristy stuff, good coffee, and delicious food I can fit in when I’m not busy at the convention center.

If you can be in Philly December 4-6, come hang out at WCUS! The schedule looks fantastic & it’s going to be great! 😀
