A tour of WordPress from Miss 604

Many thanks to Rebecca Bollwitt for taking the time to meet with me today at Waves for a quick run-through of WordPress.

Rebecca's company, sixty4media, is going to set up and install WordPress for me - and then I'm going to use it as a content management system for everything on my current site at: It's good to know sixty4media offers tutorial services, just in case... I really like how the company is willing to "do it for you" and, if you want to learn, they will also show you how to do it. That is so cool and empowering!

Rebecca, who blogs at Miss 604, organized Vancouver Twestival on February 12, which raised more than $4000 for clean-water projects in developing countries. She says she expected about 100 people to attend the event at the Opus Hotel in downtown Vancouver, but twice as many showed up. Vancouver was one of 202 cities around the world to have such a fundraiser. According to the Twestival website, participants raised $250,000 as of February 18 for charity:water. This amount of money is enough for 55 water projects in Ethiopia, Uganda and India - clean water for just over 17,000 people.
