Christoph Trappe at WordCamp Denver 2013We love WordPress around here. This site runs on a responsive WordPress theme that adjusts its look to different screen sizes and we’ve spoken at WordCamps around Northern America about WordPress-related projects.

WordPress is an easy way to share stories. Some of our posts share WordPress-related tips and tricks.

In a nutshell: WordPress is an online publishing platform that allows website owners to run blogs, newspaper, nonprofit, eCommerce and other sites. allows novice users to set up a site in minutes. Self-hosted WordPress sites run on and don’t mention WordPress in the domain name – like this site, for example.

As part of Trappe Digital LLC, I have helped launch a number of WordPress sites including:


Sing me to Heaven

The Gazette (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) newspaper

Troubled Youth Radio

United Way of East Central Iowa

Cedar Rapids RAGBRAI

Professional Women’s Network

Iowa Prep Sports

Lauri Lumm Authentic Coaching

WordCamp conferences where I’ve presented

WordCamps are regional conferences for the WordPress community. As of early May 2014, I’ve presented at these throughout Northern America. (Update: I also presented at WordCamp Omaha on Aug. 9, 2014.)wordcamps where I've presented

Some WordCamps, including Ottawa and St. Louis, produce badges that speakers, attendees and volunteers can post on their websites.
