On Saturday morning I’ll be giving a presentation at WordCamp Austin. WordCamps, for those who don’t know, are community-driven WordPress conferences that are held all around the world to talk about and learn new things about WordPress.
In this case, I’m on the organizing team, and just happen to be the Speaker Wrangler. And despite what I’ve told all my fellow speakers, and despite knowing better, I still haven’t finished my slides for my presentation.
Now to be fair, I know exactly what I’m going to talk about, and it’s very similar to other talks I’ve given. My presentation is the kickoff for our Beginners’ Track, and is simply, “Getting Started with WordPress.”
However, I hate making slides, and I just can’t seem to get motivated to finish them. I do much better with live demos than canned talks.
So, even though writing blog posts has been hard, I’d rather do a new post than finish my presentation. I’ve even done the dishes, and I’m thinking it’s about time to do the cat boxes.
That’s procrastination at its finest.
