It’s the morning after WordCamp Seattle and I’m in my hotel room thinking about the morning after such events; while some of the specifics are Seattle, the ideas are broad.
If you were at the event yesterday, perhaps you have a few business cards you acquired. Now would be a great to enter those folks into your contact database (I use BatchBook) or task management system (I use OmniFocus) for followup. Don’t let these linger… follow up on those connections before you move onto other things and forget. I’m having coffee with someone I met at WordCamp later this morning.
Perhaps you can reflect on the fact that Laura reassured you that no, you don’t need to be active on every social network that exists and that it’s okay to use just a few that help you connect with your core network.
Maybe your inner command-line nerd is all ready to dive into WordPress at the Command Line as explained by Daniel.
If you enjoyed Scott’s keynote, where he explained that often the secret to a successful blog is a lot of hard work, it might be time to get to work. If you want to hear some of Scott’s other great ideas, I can recommend his book Mindfire: Big Ideas for Curious Minds.
If you’re like me, at least once during the day you watched one session but wished you could’ve also seen something else going on at the same time. Keep an eye on WordPress.tv where the video from the talks will be uploaded within several weeks.
But most of all: do something. There were too many smart people and too many good ideas to walk away from WordCamp without at least a couple options to make you life (and probably your blog) better.
