Earlier today, Lorelle VanFossen, my new found friend from BlogWorld, delivered WordCamp Portland’s keynote on how WordPress is changing lives. At Lorelle’s insistent request, I whipped up this video for her keynote. Enjoy!

If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a chai tea latte. Thanks kindly.

Glenda I was just reflecting on how I still type with just two fingers. Then I’m lead to visit a gal who does it with one thumb.

Thank you for your inspiration and for your willingness to connect authentically.

Thank you again, Glenda, for honoring me with the incredible video. I’m so THRILLED that it is spreading around the world.

Not only has your life been changed by WordPress, look at how many lives you are changing!!! My next talk should be on how Glenda, the Left Thumb Blogger, is changing lives. 😀

Thank you so much!!!!!! Hugs!
