S. I have both of those target marketing and I AB testing together TL the each of the certain groups and then dot diamonds then you can also as you know tests either come in and just like it says in talking about dentistry so last weekend I went to where can Minneapolis was at an so used to defeat that place is amazing first of all I love where can Minneapolis the speakers sponsored dinner went down a modern drive and I've never been to their offices before fun fact they have a bar right next door so they provided drinks and it was great well actually so they had three tickets for all the speakers and when I got there at seven fifteen all the tickets for god so like drinks were by pretty quick but it was a fun event and they work camp was great everybody wrote their names on their own badges so like you had a bad day and they gave you a battery pack but then like you got the group and I say graffiti but you have to draw your name on your badge which is pretty cool so like decorating their badges and illustrating them so yeah you could illustrate them and like they had stickers and stuff like and it was kinda hard because of like your name is what but when the printer in school be made into a feature and they say what does the future it's always good to sell things that features that you don't want to do yourself there is like IRL Instagram story rate no it was like reading somebody's Instagram bio and like just it was like high and Russell emoji high do this emoji but like with stickers like that's what let's go out there and you was in this place called magnera hall in like I had pictures online and and will post them somewhere but like this hall was incredible man and what does that mean a hall it was called the whole I mean if it looked like a got a thing but apparently you know like I had a hallway so they call the hall but like it was just like this place was decorated like to the nines it was completely adorable but like they had wood paneling everywhere and like have you ever been like that the the Grand Canyon hotel at Disneyland I can walk in the light like that huge long agreed definitely has been Jason probably go there once a Dave like all the person would have gotten there Janzen but so it kinda looks like that lay out manned lot like it what it was score like and all the speaker rooms were just big and like everybody was engaged a very very very fine camp and it was around the Minnesota state fair time so we all left for camp went to the state but yeah this no that's off topic but now what was the Fairlight leg at the fair is not the right oreos and fried butter sticks dude I had a fried snickers I had a fried oreo I had a fried Milky Way and I had fried reasons while and they are you pregnant well let's not even talk about that because like that well that's a whole separate ride which yet we had so much fun though but so like you like work camp was great I walked around with the sign so I've never seen anybody do this or like I advertised for myself I want to win are no I went to Walgreens and for like two Bucks I got a big white she like a big sign can you do for a class project and I said let's talk about voice logging and I put my the the time they speak and they put the broom and I decorated it with like emerged and stuff and like I just walked around camp you're your own man and like during during lunch I just like I took one of my go Daddy bottles and I put my sign up against a and I was just like free advertising I looked like when the sponsor booths but like very poorly cheaply done well I actually there's the that I think there's an actual suitcase thing is the word for if you are advertising without but I don't think it helps the same way if you are advertising and talk you're doing at that camp I think that that's totally valid can't recall a brief casing that I think we should call it blocking no I don't know it seems totally valid engagement yeah I I but so like I I go to work come up to you yeah so like like I used to go to work to our and I did have somebody walk around and take the have a sign that said like the offspring plays at one forty five on the monster stage and I was like that's kind of good advertising you just have someone walk around the crowd in advertising I was like I'll do that and I walked around every room and yeah it was fun people so you just need to get a little attachment to like your backpack that's like this and it like blows maybe the USB port and it's like that little lady guy that's in front of too bad because that would be fine back Lee is one of those guys that would be awesome rent one of those this bring it to work camp and plug it into that just like its a waving about people are like what's this to be like come come into my time I it's so what like one thing that I've always struggled with this like I feel like when when I go to work camp and I talk about something I want to be a thing on my own game so like I wish I talk about something new but then like I looked at my I was up against a talk about good burger and I was like well that's gonna suck is that so like that's obviously going to be you know like where the majority of the group goes and that there's another one called back to the future which was like you know really interesting I kind of want to go to that one too but I was like how many of you get but chairs houses going to happen now but you just heard is blogging I was like I'm just gonna be myself I mean advertise and you know worst case scenario is I get three people what was your are why I mean every terrible like two is filled so it's pretty good okay so when you're walking around its center people come up to you or what so yes and no but mostly yes so like I would stand there outside the room so like well like when when talk got out I'd go outside when room and I'd stand there and like someone to be like what's that might be toxic or like during lunch like during lunch they had like one long line where everybody like I just stood there at the end next to like the deserts so like no matter what it by the end of what it's like like you had to see me like you're not gonna pass the dessert I was like down the desert really high visibility IRL market its prime really like if I was in that I was in the header and like I get their talks late I don't does something that happens there's not like come to my talk I mean I guess they do on Twitter whatever all I'm is that nobody there will like I saw was like on their phones are on Twitter or like you know what like there wasn't a huge thing going on for the camp and I was like they're standing right in front of me I'm in a tweet and hope this works or I could just be like Hey you know stand there like John Cusack in the rain with my boombox I love you well you know you please think of the boom box and just read that on your side because yes and I did an Instagram that hold the sign that just as boom box it doesn't actually look like when it's as if this is boom box and you just walk around with it like this yes really important looking meeting like tapping in office the hall from this making me very anxious it's one should not unlike what it is about the problems I can add some start up is not going to matter twenty but I don't know this thing that is like this whole glass walls thing is really weird locals like makes me feel very strange right dropping out everybody I saw I saw the Gutenberg %HESITATION flag like the prompts sometimes street as walking along buttons on December I really like that right getting don't click on it I'm not I'm not respond you should I walk by and be like Hey did you get the three seven update or heard you as a P. that bad boy or what well we got our usable compatible alright that's funny man I don't know if they can hear me well we can personal case initiatives we I want to talk about voice booking for a second can you like it what was your talk about I'm kind interested so I so so my blog is about random stuff like I don't blog about like the top five fashion trends are like I just have a blog because like when I when I think about things the only way to get them out of my head is that right walk us about it so like I take my dog for a twenty minute walk in the morning and I just brainstorm ideas I'm like Hey I heard this funny joke how can I turn that into a blog poster like I have a funny thing about pockets let's brainstorm about that so like I come up with an idea and then I take my dog on another walk around lunch time and then I I start making up stories right so like I come up with crazy things and then at the end of the day I had about an hour like kinda with Jason does with his dog is I just take him for a long walk and so I plug my headphones into my phone and I just opened up Google keep and I turn on the microphone and you start talking in the my phone and I write my blog keep like keep dropping in like when I used it like basically like strong that's on iPhone an injury that just works but on iPhone you have it stops and starts over again it does time out like if you don't use it for a few minutes it will stop the microphone price another I'm on an iPhone like you're using it and within like on a five seconds it just stops and you're like only person again and you have to go through the whole thing again of doing that yeah no way on and I I did enjoy but that's what I like and I just I opened up the heat and I just start talking and I mean like like when I write blog posts about we're dressed like I'm writing about something that I know like eggs right now to like instead of typing exactly what I'm saying as I'm on the water cooler right now like what if you could just voice blog and in ten minutes I can write fifteen hundred words which is you know pretty awesome verse is like sitting in front of a computer and I get my hands on home row and I got to make sure I'm ready go like I don't like to actually type anymore so I've always fly again it's just it's a it's a way for me to what I tell a story I get excited like we've been to a work camp together you've seen me drink you see me get all crazy excited like I tell my blog because the same way and hopefully they read that way instead of like sitting down and trying to hit on my S. your key words I just want to get the meat of my story on paper or on a digital platform and then copy and paste over to wordpress and then I'll make my edit do stuff there cool I'm so what's the work around for folks like me who has what you used to use an app on the iPhone called drafts and drafts the whole thing is they call it a where text starts so when you use drafts you use this as a place to put all your thoughts down before you turn it into a text message or before you turn it into an email so there's no like things like yeah and I hope to box there's no nothing like that so you're just putting in text but it has a really cool thing on there where you can push it to tell it to hit record in all actually re do the dictation on the fly as you're doing it but it's doing better processing them what's your he normally does by itself and it stays on longer it stays on indefinitely so when I do my like I do would rust as were at for when I'm driving out when I'm driving from left to get greasy person that gets in my car %HESITATION all %HESITATION after dropping off a usually pull off to the side of the road and I'll hit the drafts button and all records like yep it's also a lake man that person was crazy this and this happened all along whatever and then it becomes taxed that I can actually use later and then later on all the way the Americans because I had you picked me up and left before so I mean does he have a meat now so I'll tell you the hardest part about voice blogging is this is so you just said the word drafts yeah so like you have to a Nancy your words because it might spell the word draft juror or it might spell giraffe like the animals so like you had to be precise with your words like another one is are you know a our year O. U. R.'s so but like so so you can see our or you could say hours but then they might think you're saying H. O. you are and how you are as so like voice blogging kind of sucks not personal problems it's really a personal problem but like for the most recognition software doesn't differentiate between hours and hours it's really frustrating delete each just like not know what I'm trying to say you know but like for the most part with Google keep like it will try to read the sentence and like use machine learning and be like oh it probably should use this word about this word but like did just those like weather and weather like you know it might use the right weather might use the wrong whether like you know me as what's that you met yesterday plugins looking at coming soon plugins and they all our names the exact same thing and it's like so frustrating because they all have the same name but they all do different things like different whatever and they're like all they all say easy coming soon and I'm like I like that was not easy every single one leg literally coming soon programs is pretty funny like I was looking at it and it was like I was thinking about that like how is the user differentiating between these latter day I was looking at coming soon plug ins and I said the same thing is so like I use use ultimate coming soon because that was one of my favorite ones and like apparently that got Bader that got sold to somebody else so now I have to use another one called easy coming soon and like weird I had I had to choose like my template and I had to choose all this other stuff and then like if you didn't put text in the field and put its own people accidents not what I wanted my coming soon page just say like it was a nightmare like I I always just like me my own Gutenberg page like I was that frustrated with it well right now you have you checked you know we have to have with that I teach compatibility you are having to be like okay is this a developed enough Clinton and it's probably going to get the good for treatment or was it updated like you know reading you really have to pay attention to that right now right now is making every choice a little scary be back from some of the people who've taken near switched over first plug ins to me have always been a little scary just cause like I don't know like if I hit activate how many tables are gonna get installed in my database kind of like a wheel but you're out that there are going how many have to use the stables migrating forever not only that but like if I delete this thing I got those tables going to stay and like you know is there an option that I'm not checking to say like you know delete upon like there's so many places to go and see like I kind of feel like every plugin has its own sub options of sub options and I'm like I'm missing all of them and I feel excluded from my own website I'll do the options table alone has ridiculous amounts of just crossed that just laying around in there from playing around with different plug ins and stuff data right one thing to have tables that you can actually delete the table if you know you need to get rid of it had to do member has talked about cleaning that website yeah last week I'm because of the way the entries this is a gravity forms entries based on our contact that I was moving so there were a lot of steps because gravity forms isn't natively movement entries it'll take about a man and so there are these other issues basically doubt met melt in your mouth and your hand that's really going to sound like you're taking but I'm glad they %HESITATION and and gravity news has a great view has a great and plug in called import entries and that there were some issues that were happening and so I was you know going back and forth and they were great just shot out %HESITATION but basically I had to go into the database because of the way the gravity forms is that was holding the data for these particular entries like it was that upload image %HESITATION field it was uploading them as text and so I had to go in I couldn't modify it I don't even like tax it was very weird had going to modify it manually and change the path of all images all of the database wow yeah if you like the CLI on that bad boy or something you're not really good great scripts I I had to shake more work than it's worse for me better service replace that that that's a plugin mandated that I am the biggest fan of it's a delicious brains fly again but yeah there's a search replace with that one better search replace to replace it now it's just called better search replace nine no but is it working in the database yeah yeah so what what what you do is like you put it specifically what you want and then specifically what you want to change it to you can even do a dry run and then you can also you can even select the tables that you want to look in it was all messed up because it had BM probably go to work now they think about and write code like thought about that but they have the yen down all the calls link when you have a web address and you have to have the other a backslash for lunch what what a backslash versus a friend slash your escaping them escaping and that says yeah it was all escaped out and whatever so it wasn't it wasn't tracking like that well that's where you get it's a regular expression this is like what I was the second is to I was talking about technology technology and technology and how like it's so frustrating sometimes when you get going into business or get going and what you're doing and you're doing all the things you're doing and you know how to do and then there's all this new stuff that's happening and I don't know that to and then you know mats over there like learn Java script and then I was like no learned this other thing campaigning on thanks should there but then you don't use it you know and you're like I kind of know how to do that we're good and then you're like two years later you like shoot anyway that's how I feel that tax break out look into my world long story about that eminently you know all of the latest social media bargains and you're like I feel the same way but it's like did you learn reacted did you learn this new thing called view and did you download the new Snapchat filter and like did you have this new thing for work oh by the way did you hear crumb gotten update you switch over HTTP S. are using IPV six right where do your phone interface okay when I feel so bad for just consumers that are just like everything just like shifting Rollins higher make known as any concern for users in the here's what it is okay is like if if I'm the guy that's just developing the touch bar I live my life is just touch bar so I'm pushing updates every five minutes because I'm just a touch of our guy but like you said at the consumer you have this touch Gardner just like I don't even know what to do anymore like this guy who I don't know is halfway across the world like being a nerd yeah he's obsessed I'm just like you chill for a minute like let me learn John let me learn HTML and then work on each email two and three I'll get the five eventually faster than that you know every you know I do these different I do talks every year and stuff and it's like whatever and go into the update on my slides during a big talk next week and I am updating all my slides and everything and I'm like man I feel bad how do people keep up like I got rid of slides just like screw it I know I I'm like a like okay for forty minutes I'm gonna talk about boys blogging but like I feel like I'm entertaining enough that I don't need slides and like it's it's more annoying where I'm like hold on and I have to go over and hit the arrow it or like it the space to like move my slide like or add that this pointer like it's just not for me so like when you're doing slides like are you trying to tie in your slides to your talk and I do you practice them like like standard that rhetorical and it would just look up a Chromecast or an apple to create jobs thing and I would just I would just sources I would just tell everybody in the crowd like cake connect to this apple TV and display something on the screen and I'll talk about it for fifteen I want to do that so bad like like like like the prob is like when you go to a work camp like you're on the university of Minnesota's wifi so your network and like there's some dude who is like the I. T. guy was not gonna let you join your Chromecast didn't do that that would be fun it would be so much fun wait that's basically just like that life pitch that kind of deal right yeah he's like on should be your thing and you know what everyone shop here and then I'll just sit here and talk about it for fifteen minutes we could secure in your knowledge really whatever it is that it's like an a a constant anime when we write whenever just bring it we could bring the innovations are like like where we hold our meetups like they have an apple TV in each room and like anybody can just connect to a kick the next person awesome like we could all do that that would be so much fun like before battle FAQ or things like battle question it's kind it kind of like it's kind of like when you D. activity all your plugins than you activate them all it's like which screen is going to take you to first like this jet pack when discussed the metal box windows Gutenberg way and I always liked playing that game usually the best custom field wins all the time now I don't even so do you do you guys have the touch for macbook nope neither one of you do wrong you can share with you my favorite as good share with you my favorite thing that I do with the touch bar I still want to know everything you do with your touch bar yeah exactly so there's the there's an app out there called night night touch part two thousand and no joke it's the it's the it's the kit car like that goes across that nonstop on there it's so cool like they can't make that I get my order right well but it doesn't actually talk to you know but it just goes back and forth rather than distracting no not at all people in the office next to me and doing some crazy like shares switching were not made for this environment say I just wanna tell you if you really want that walks into the phone booth and then looked the other direction instead of looks out the window if I did that I would be all seeing that we'll get some of those dunce caps and you're just at the corner and then you'll disappear into your work the blinders or looking at you guys nothing nothing else the whole rooms of people over there anyway we should come over and accept is that yeah so next yeah next up so it's gonna be fun so if you remember a couple of those back we talked about %HESITATION forking or talk about fourteen word press in the idea of of taking the wordpress project and working it coming up with the wrong thing to do with it and so I'm going to be talking with a guy who he did this thing called cult classic press and so we're gonna talk with the talk with him about how classic press is working and how he's going to live the not getting Berg lifestyle and see how the whole thing works so it's really interesting number burgers every good work is this is this like wordpress version of cutting the cord right help that I need to talk about it next week I hope I can join I'll be flying in an airplane so that'll be fun I'm just give me a call from random places awesome so that's when we talk about next week so for free do %HESITATION come hang out with us around a few water cooler I would appreciate that in if you're interested in love to try the stuff they can work with a complex subscribe lastly just let you know Russ reader would reduce stress redesigned his website I don't know if you guys have seen this but his website is a simply power by water cooler and so if you go over to his website at a rustle in B. dot com his site has all videos from all of the water coolers that he's been on so you know not to say that say read media needs to have this done but it is pretty good last year last year so like like are you really real I'm I'm just keepin it real I'm just joking with you the big I'm really big into this like self promotion kind of thing right now and so like you know it's all about me and expect to have my own website so I was like well it's going to advertise that's awesome and well I appreciate very much to make cigarettes looks like to take a look at it and %HESITATION such a letter he
Russ spoke about Voiceblogging
FOR BLOGGING OUT LOUD! USE YOUR VOICE TO BLOG
I blog out loud. I use my phone to capture my voice and turn it into text content. I copy and paste the content into a new post. Now all I have to do is add a few images and links. In just 15 minutes, you can have your next blog post written.
Russ has written (voiceblogged?) about this on his website: Voice To Text Blogging is the way of the future. Here’s How I Use Daily.
Russ walked around the camp and promoted his talk to people using a sign. He had a full house at his talk and things worked out well.
Sé was broadcasting from WeWork (not a sponsor but call us if you want to sponsor!)
Jason shared Drafts as an app to do voice blogging on iOS using it’s dictation feature
Jason talks about using Drafts to remember things that have happened during his drives for Lyft. Funny things people say or incidents that occurred.
Russ shared with is the Coming Soon plugin called Easy Coming Soon.
Sé shares with us Gutenberg and her experience with using it with clients and interacting with clients that are using it.
Better Search Replace is a great way to search and replace content all over the WordPress database for text that needs to be changed globally on the website
