Using WordPress as your publishing hub

This morn­ing at WordCamp San Diego I gave a talk titled “Using WordPress as your pub­lish­ing hub. It went well and lots of peo­ple had great ques­tions. If any­one has fol­lowup ques­tions I’m happy to answer them in the com­ments. The slides are included below.

The blurb I sent in for the talk was:

WordPress as Your Publishing Hub will cover every­thing you need to know to sim­plify your web pub­lish­ing. With Facebook, Twitter, and many other ser­vices it can be stress­ful to make sure you are pub­lish­ing the right con­tent in the right places. In this ses­sion you will learn how to sim­plify this with plu­g­ins, core fea­tures, and theme options. Best of all, you won’t need to know any code to do it! You can make WordPress your dig­i­tal home on the web.

  1. Thanks for think­ing of FavePersonal, Andrew. Not hav­ing seen your talk yet I can only assume what you’re envi­sion­ing is what we want to accom­plish, too: a sin­gle hub for pho­tos, videos, sta­tus posts, blog entries, etc.

    I’ll send an email in case you want to trade some ideas and feedback.

      Precisely. The talk was about using your WP site as the hub for every­thing you pub­lish and then push­ing out to and pulling in from other ser­vices. I really dig what you guys did with FavePersonal.

        Thanks! We think there’s lots of poten­tial here. I think folks are con­tin­u­ing to turn their atten­tion to this now (espe­cially as there will only be more social net­works) and look for­ward to help­ing make it easy to own your “home on the web” with­out becom­ing an island. :)

  2. These slides are really great! You’ve inspired me to set a new goal: Always cre­ate slides that are leg­i­ble at 150x112px. Nicely done :)
