Today I attended the first day of WordCamp Birmingham, a gathering of WordPress bloggers and developers. There were some very informative sessions. The highllight of the event was a “WordPress Town Hall Meeting” presided over by Matt Mullenweg, the founding developer of WordPress. Matt, who has a great sense of humor and is very entertaining, spent over an hour answering questions and giving tiny hints about things that might be in the works for the next version of WordPress.
I came away from the session more convinced than ever that lawyers who blog can’t go wrong choosing WordPress as their blogging platform. It’s very easy-to-use, and although I’ve not tried to promote this particular blog, I’ve used it on some other sites and found it to be very SEO-friendly.
