When I am not doing WordPress related stuff, I spend time with my Girlfriend and my friends. Three times a month I attend/speak at local meetup groups. Through WordPress and meetups, I've met some of my best friends. We have a lot in common. The real way you find out what you have in common comes from hanging out. In hanging out with my friends, we have a few stories we share all of the time. This is one of them.When you drink around your friendsMy friends and I go to beer festivals.

I made the switch from AT&T to Google FI on February 16th, 2017. My AT&T bill was $90.00 a month. That included the payment I was making on my Google Nexus 6 phone. After I made my final phone payment, I was paying $55.00 a month for AT&T's service. I couldn't have been more excited.

At WordCamp Orange County, I had a chance to talk with Bridget Willard. Bridget expressed her hatred towards me every time I give her an answer of "GOOGLE IT". Every day since that WordCamp, I've thought about why I tell people to "GOOGLE IT". I say this all the time at the Vegas WordPress Meetup group as well. After many months and thoughts, I've come to an answer. I say "GOOGLE IT". I realized Google Built My Website.What does that meanGoogle Built My Website means I've spent countless … [Read more...] about Google Built My Website
Talking is a huge part of life. We do it sometimes without even thinking about it. I say things all the time. I'm the first to admit I talk without thinking. When I think of my friends, I think about things they say more than what they do. Usually, when I mention my buddy John Hawkins, it's because he said something important I want someone else to know. I hope others do the same when they think of me. I realized we have no control over what people do or say about us. We can only talk and hope … [Read more...] about Five things I say the most
Halloween is my favorite holiday. It's close to my Birthday and a free day off work in Nevada. My second favorite holiday? Cinco de Mayo. The locals call it the 5th of May.

This time was a little different. My agenda was to learn how people in Michigan use WordPress. This is all part of my plan to become a better role model in WordPress. Even though you and I both use WordPress to achieve an end goal, we use it differently every day. So my objective was simple. … [Read more...] about WordCamp Ann Arbor Recap 2016
