“Content Creation through Storytelling”
We’re very pleased to have William Jackson join us in
the month of February
“Content Creation Through Storytelling”
William has been involved in the WordPress community
since 2010, attending his first WordCamp in Orlando,
Florida and has been hooked ever since.
Everyone loves a good story. Everyone enjoys a good
conversation that grabs their attention and makes their
brain wander to places that tug at their emotions and
Philly is full of stories from sports to politics, to community,
to family and friends and even what the future holds for the
City of Brotherly Love.
The power of storytelling is a wonderful thing when done
with the right words, the right twist of humor, and the right
graphics. Content is still King, with Data coming a close
second, and engagement is Queen.
Join WordPress Philly as William Jackson, educator,
blogger, podcaster, Clubhouse moderator and
conference speaker shares his ideas and excitement
about storytelling with WordPress.
William Jackson, M.Ed.
