Today is the first of four speaking engagements I have over the next week. As some may know, is not my full-time job – although with all the fun adventures in which I get to participate, I wish it could be sometimes.

WordCamp VictoriaI am the co-founder of a WordPress website development firm and I love to code and build websites for our amazing clients — it’s my “day job”. As such, I’ve been asked to speak at WordCamp Victoria today (and I am also one of the organizers for WordCamp Vancouver this June).

John and I just had breakfast in bed (my first-ever B&B stay) and we’ll be making our way over to University Canada West for WordCamp shortly. I’ll be posting photos, tweets and updates here throughout the day as the agenda rolls along.

Update Things are going great at WordCamp. This morning Tris gave a talk about some nice, clean SEO tips and Lloyd introduced us to some of the features rolling out with the next version, WordPress 3. During lunch I sat on a panel with Raul and Lorraine, which I think went very well. We were all on the same page but had different perspectives to share about writing, best-practices, the future of blogging and citizen journalism.

John‘s been snapping photos so the following is a slideshow from his Flickr set…

Coming up this afternoon I have a talk about plugins and then I’m looking forward to hearing Dave Zille give a talk and be on a panel with Tris Hussey and Lloyd Budd.

Update My talk has just ended and although I breezed through a lot of content in about 25 minutes (of the 50 allotted) there were some great discussions. My slides are posted below:

Update Raul liveblogged my talk here.
