So far I’ve written a synopsis of the WordCamp2007Israel event and how Lorelle is helping me to be a better blogger. Now I’d like to talk about my perceptions of the event.
For a first outing, WordCampIsrael was fantastically organized. Even though there were not a few rough spots, the people behind it deserve kudos for pulling it off, especially since I understand the event was put together in a relatively short period of time.

Lorelle‘s two presentations were for me the highlight of the conference and the reason I slogged through the entire 10-hour day from beginning to end. Lorelle is an energetic and enthusiastic speaker and even if you didn’t agree with everything she said or thought you couldn’t apply what she said to your own blog, you couldn’t help but be supercharged with her energy (and finding out that she’s also a fan of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld didn’t hurt either).
First of all a big hello to the folks who found their way here from Lorelle’s post on WordCamp Israel! My previous posts on WordCamp Israel are here and here.
Yesterday’s WordCamp Israel event at Michlelet Afekah in Tel Aviv was the first blogging event in Israel dedicated to a particular blogging platform. As it turned out, according to Lorelle VanFossen, WordPress evangelist and the keynote speaker, WordCamp Israel was effectively also the first international WordCamp. Another first for Israel. Douze points!*
