Bela’s IDEAS: February 13, 2024

February 13, 2024 issue of Bela’s IDEAS, featuring Bela admitting to needing her ass kicked, plus bits of Black and Palestinian liberation, the TransTech Summit, diversity training, WordPress trends to avoid, plus ZeroCon and Axe-Con conferences.

Collective Ass-Kicking

Hey friend! I hope your week is off to a good start. As for me, I'm feeling like I need a kick in my ass to get things going. I've missed a lot of my personal goals lately due to lack of motivation and also just the current state of the world. And that's okay - I give myself grace. But I also need accountability and progress.

I shared on LinkedIn last week about some plans I have to offer more community support sessions (in addition to my coworking sessions). In case you missed it, check out my post on targeted community support sessions and let me know what you think!

Coworking Sessions

We're coworking Wednesday, Friday, and Monday. Come on over!

This Week's IDEAS

  • Black Liberation and Palestine

    Last week, I had the absolute honor to attend Professor Butch Ware's talk, Black Liberation and Palestine. Hosted by San Diego State University Center for Islamic and Arabic Studies, it was profoundly needed and I learned so much. I highly recommend you watch this and take notes.

  • The TransTech Summit

    Register for The TransTech Summit, a FREE online event in March. Specifically created for the most marginalized members of the LGBTQIA+ community, its purpose is to uplift through education and employment.

    • Special thanks to my friend and coworking buddy, Star Peterson, for letting me know about this event. Should you need LGBTQ+ or neurodiversity, training, be sure to contact them at Stellar Diversity Training.
  • WordPress Trends to Avoid in 2024

    Next Monday, February 19, Danielle Zarcaro is giving a talk on WordPress Trends to Avoid in 2024. Will I see you there?

  • ZeroCon and Axe-Con

    Two online, free conferences are coming up, both targeted at accessibility and disability: ZeroCon24 (February 21-23) and Axe-Con (February 20-22).
