It's been over a year now of the Joomla Beat Podcast and I'm happy to announce the 50th episode coming right up. 

This will be a special episode, not just an audio podcast that will be going out but also a Google+ Hangout with a couple of industry experts talking about how they make money and how they have built a business around using a free open source piece of software. It's going to be like a virtual Joomla User Group meeting with a global audience and global presenters. It's going to be fun fun fun!

Details are...

Topic: Talking about the Joomla! eco system, how people are making money with Joomla!
When: Saturday, 8 February 2014, 10:000 AM Australian EST (Time conversion here for everyone else Friday, 7 February 2014 at 11:00:00 PM GMT)
Where: Google+ Hangout

Don't miss out RSVP, invite and share the event.

The weekend that had just past was the 2013 Joomla World Conference held in Boston, USA.

As this was my very first large Joomla conference I decided to do a reflection article instead of pushing out a social media review or a conference report day by day to hopefully inspire others to go.

A reflection piece is something to make me think more about the messages that were put to the community rather than anything else and besides, I have to report back to the Joomla User Group Sydney as well and this can only help with my review of the weekend.

ProBlogger Training Event 2013

2013 is the year that I chose to start my own blogging career. That is blog professionally, building a website and sharing what I am most passionate about, Joomla. That is the reason I started the Joomla Beat Podcast. I wanted more people using and understanding what the content management system had to offer bloggers, designers, implementers and more.

The more understanding people have of Joomla, the more potential and up take there may be of the content management system. My mission this year at ProBlogger was to get people questioning and investigating different options for their blogging platforms and hope that Joomla was one of those options.

J and Beyond 2013

Another year and another awesome J and Beyond conference.

I've mentioned this conference several times over the past few months and now is the time for it to actually come around and happen.

This is a Storify overview of the few days at J and Beyond with additional updates around each day. Comment, share, tweet and enjoy.

You can find out more about the conference and the program at the J and Beyond website or watch some of the presentations and videos on the J and Beyond YouTube channel.
