Who is on whose shirt??!!
Well, I figured it was time to give ServerBeach some much needed t-shirt love – ServerBeach is on MY shirt today! I want to thank ServerBeach for giving me the opportunity to hijack their blog today, not only to totally nab Charnell’s t-shirt love idea…but to make a few exciting announcements leading up to SXSW Interactive 2009.
Let me introduce myself: I am Lisa Sabin-Wilson and I am the author of WordPress For Dummies, and the creative director of E.Webscapes Design Studio. I’m really excited to announce that ServerBeach and I are joining forces this weekend at the SXSW Interactive Festival and bringing you some really COOL schwag at the ServerBeach exhibit booth!
I am appearing at the ServerBeach booth on Saturday, March 14 from 1-4pm, Sunday, March 15 from 1-4pm and Monday, March 16 from 1-3pm. I’m really looking forward to seeing my good friends from ServerBeach again, after the fun we had hanging out at the BlogWorld Expo event in Vegas last November!
But! I’m doing so much more than merely hanging out with them at SXSW – if you are headed to SXSW, stopping by the ServerBeach booth is a MUST DO for you…and here’s why:
- WordPress For Dummies: ServerBeach will be giving away free copies of WordPress For Dummies at their booth, and as a bonus – I will be present in the times stated above, to do book signings. So stop by the ServerBeach booth and pick up your FREE autographed copy of WordPress For Dummies. Already have a copy? No problem – stop by the booth to say hi … I love to meet my readers, and I’ll sign your copy!
- WordPress Q&A: During the times I will be at the ServerBeach booth, I am also available to do a quickie WordPress Q&A if you have any specific questions on how to use WordPress on your site or blog. I’ll have my laptop ready with a clean install of WordPress open, ready for your questions.
- Premium themes, anyone?? I do a lot of custom design work for WordPress users over at E.Webscapes – – for SXSW I am doing 5 free themes for WordPress users – available ONLY to SXSW attendees who stop by the ServerBeach exhibit booth on March 14-16, 2009. Here’s what you do: stop by the booth and ask for the super secret link to Lisa’s WordPress themes they are giving away. That’s it! (the themes are free and completely GPL). (ServerBeach just might give these themes away to the general public after SXSW is over – that is totally up to them, but for now, they’re available from the ServerBeach exhibit booth at SXSW exclusively.)
I’m very excited to be working with ServerBeach at SXSW – their company philosophy, targeted at geeks like me, strikes a chord, as a customer – and their involvement and interest in the WordPress project is always a sure and straight way to my heart! As a very satisfied customer of their self-managed hosting services for almost 6 years, this was an opportunity I could not let pass me by. Are you planning on being in Austin for SXSW? I would truly love it if you’d stop by the ServerBeach exhibit booth to say hi!
