If you have ever wanted to start your own website, consider attending WordCamp Milwaukee June 7-9. WordCamp is a conference for users of WordPress, a free blogging platform that powers over 60 million websites worldwide (including Milwaukee Consumer).
I attended WordCamp Milwaukee last year and spent the weekend with over 200 other website operators learning more about the world’s most popular content management system.
One of the reasons that WordPress is so popular is that it allows non-technical people to run a professional looking website. WordCamp caters to users of all technical abilities – from those who are getting ready to launch their first website, to developers that write code to extend the capabilities of WordPress.
WordCamp Milwaukee Discount Code
At $25 a ticket, WordCamp is very reasonably priced. Each ticket includes two full days of presentations, lunch both days, and a reception on Saturday night. For $10 more, attend a four-hour Foundation 101 boot camp for new WordPress users and developers on Friday.
I was recently selected to be a speaker at this year’s WordCamp Milwaukee, and have a discount code to save $5 on tickets. Enter my last name, Olsen (make sure you spell it right!), in the Coupon Code field at checkout to receive your discount. Only ten discounts are available, so if you’re interested, don’t delay!
If you’re attending WordCamp Milwaukee this year, leave a comment and let me know! I’d love to meet up and say hi.

Pick ‘n Save is offering Double Double Coupon Daze the next two Saturdays – March 30 and April 6. Shoppers will be able to double 10 coupons instead of the normal limit of five double coupons.

- Customers must spent $25 in a single transaction to double manufacturers’ coupons. The $25 amount is before tax, and after store coupons and loyalty discounts.

- Does not apply to manufacturers’ coupons that are not valid for doubling.
- Does not apply to alcohol and tobacco manufacturers’ coupons.
Thanks to Milwaukee Consumer reader Tony for the tip on this deal!
