The last days of the Grand Meetup were packed full of activities and work. They were early mornings and late nights, and I was just too exhausted at the end of the day to write. As I sit in the plane going back home, I thought I’d get caught up.
Lots of exciting things happened 🙂
Another busy day today!
After jumping out of bed SUPER late at 9:20, I ran downstairs to catch the last bit of the first keynote speech, by productivity guru Ari Meisel.
The second keynote was by retired US Army General Ann Dunwoody. General Dunwoody is the first female 4-star General in the US armed forces and is the newest member of Automattic’s board.
Thanks for following along! Today was a very busy day.
Because last night was a bit of a late night, I slept in a bit and woke up just in time to get some breakfast. For today I reserved a room for all team leads of WordPress.com support so we could have breakfast together.
I decided to take a break from social media for 30 days, so instead of sharing pictures and experiences from my annual pilgrimage to Automattic’s Grand Meetup on Instagram and Facebook, I decided to document it in my blog.
A few weeks ago I joined fellow Automattician Dustin Hartzler as we were interviewed by our friend Erik Fisher, host of the phenomenal Beyond the To-Do List podcast.
We talked about the rewards and challenges of remote work, including our workstation setup, balancing family and work, staying productive, fitness, and wearing pants 🙂
Besides being my coworker and friend, Dustin hosts the weekly Your Website Engineer podcast. If you are into WordPress, I really recommend you subscribe to this one.
Besides being a lot of fun, it’s a great honour to be included in Erik’s extensive list of amazing guests, such as Carl Newport, David Allen, Jason Van Orden, John Acuff, Chris Brogan, Michael Hyatt, and many others.
