Speaker Profile: Chrissie Pollock

As WordCamp NYC approaches, we are featuring some of our speakers on the blog. Be sure to get your tickets before they sell out!

What is your favorite improvement to WordPress this past year?
I’m super excited about the acquisition of Woo.

Why did you decide to speak at WordCamp NYC?
I heard that WordCamp NYC is amazing, and I grew up on Long Island so I was eager to “come home” and share my love of WordPress with amazing people.

What is your talk going to be about?
Community Consultation Creates Compelling Content is about tapping into various parts of the WordPress community to make your own content visible and stronger.

What is the one thing you want people to walk away with from your talk?
I want people to walk away with a sense of community and a knowledge of various venues of support.

Who in the WordPress community inspires you? Who do you follow?
I am very inspired by those who are technologically challenged, yet blog anyway. Their willingness to step outside their zone to join our community is very inspiring. I follow writers I meet in our Blogging University courses as well as friends, family and co-workers.

What new feature would you like to see in the future?
I would love to access revision history in the new editor.
