I just got back yesterday from the fabulous NMX/BlogWorld conference in Las Vegas. We had an awesome booth right at the front of the room, where I had the pleasure of talking with all kinds of folks: everyone from veteran WordPress users to brand new users to people who just wanted to know what WordPress is.
While I enjoy talking to just about anyone in the WordPress community, I think I most enjoy talking to folks who are just getting started and are full of questions. It’s very gratifying to me to help someone go from uninformed or even completely confused about WordPress or the web in general to confident and ready to create their own site.
To me, that’s a huge part of the beauty of WordPress – it’s simple enough for just about anyone to use yet powerful and scalable enough to handle huge and complex sites.
I’ll post some pics of Vegas on my personal blog soon.
