Hi, I’m Julia.
I organize the WordPress Share and Learn sessions for this group. My WordPress skills were used daily until landing my current job, where I’m using more of my desktop publishing skills. However, I’m still a dedicated WordPress user. I’m always interested in learning more; hence the reason for creating these Share and Learn events.
I studied WordPress Open Source Development with Q College, Victoria’s school of business technology. I also try to keep abreast of changes in web technology and online marketing principles through subscribing to online video tutorials with Lynda.com. I like clean looking sites that offer completely obvious navigation. Hopefully this site fits that description – if not then leave a comment and I’ll look at addressing it.
I hope you find this site and the WordPress events held at the clubhouse useful. Thanks to all those who are actively involved with this wonderful community group – without YOU the events would not happen. My vision for these events and the group that meets has always been to share and learn (a “pay it forward” philosophy, if you like). Therefore, we are always looking to those more advanced WordPressers in Victoria to help us grow, and in the process help each other.
Thanks for reading, and for attending!
I’ve been using WordPress since 2012, and WordPress.com before that. Originally from the UK, I have a varied professional background of 30 years. I have worked in administrative, market research, budgeting, programming, and IT project roles. I hold qualifications in administration, marketing, desktop and web publishing, web design, and project management.
I used to play ice hockey. Now my physical pursuits are reserved for swing dancing and a little bit of cycling (I have a cute fold-up bike that fits in my tiny car). I also like anything creative, from acrylic painting to quilting and sewing. My young son makes life fun, and I have a good excuse to play with lego again! My favourite TV show, without a doubt, is The Big Bang Theory.
