Christina: Me too.



Christina: Okay, so I&#8217;m gonna do my five seconds of silence again.



Christina: Hello and thanks for listening to WP_contribute. Today I have the pleasure of introducing you to Allie Nimmons. Allie is a Tech Support Team Member at Give WP and a GoDaddy Pro Speaker Ambassador. She owns Pixel Glow Maintenance where she provides WordPress maintenance services to growing businesses. Welcome, Allie!



Allie: Hi, Christina. Thank you for having me.



Christina: Thanks for being here. So is there anything else you wanted to touch on in that introduction, other than what we&#8217;ve already said?



Allie: No, I think I think you really touched on all the things that take up most of my time in any given day. So that&#8217;s a good representation of who I am and what I do, particularly in the WordPress space.



Christina: Excellent. I&#8217;m curious if you can tell us more about what it means to be a Speaker Ambassador.



Allie: So I like to joke that I am a I&#8217;m a GoDaddy employee, but they pay me in plane tickets to WordCamps. Because basically, I am an advocate for the GoDaddy Pro product, not necessarily GoDaddy as a company or any of their other you know domain or hosting products, but specifically for GoDaddy Pro, which I use to maintain my sites and my client sites as well. And yeah, they, they send me to Camps, that they are, some camps that they are sponsoring, not all of them. But they sponsor a Camp, they send me they usually send a couple of other people as well. And I get to be there as an ambassador for the product. And a lot of times my talks are kind of geared so that they are appealing or helpful for people who might also be interested in the GoDaddy Pro system. So people who are managing multiple websites and need to backup multiple websites and you know, those sorts of people and so I get to have a lot of really, really cool conversations with people who either use GoDaddy Pro or are interested in GoDaddy Pro and I get to connect them with this really, really neat tool that I really love. And I get to travel, like this past year I&#8217;ve traveled. I&#8217;ve never been to Boston before I got to go to Boston. I&#8217;ve never been to Seattle before and I got to go to Seattle. Next weekend, I&#8217;m going to Phoenix for the first time I never been to Phoenix. I never been to St. Louis. I get to go to WordCamp US last year thanks to GoDaddy. And so it&#8217;s really a pretty sweet gig. I don&#8217;t know how I how I lucked into what I did, but it&#8217;s kind of my dream because I really really like speaking and I really really like traveling. And I&#8217;ve met like people like yourself through those experiences and so it&#8217;s really opened up the, the world of WordPress as far as the people to me, which is pretty fantastic.



Christina: That&#8217;s amazing. That sounds really great. I wouldn&#8217;t mind doing something like t

Episode Transcript
Tara: This is Hallway Chats, where we meet people who use WordPress.
Liam: We ask questions and our guests share their stories, ideas, and perspectives.
Tara: And now the conversation begins. This is Episode 118.
Liam: Welcome to Hallway Chats. I&#8217;m Liam Dempsey.
Tara: And I&#8217;m Tara Claeys. Today we&#8217;re joined by Allie Nimmons. Allie is a self-taught WordPress user who has done the agency thing, she&#8217;s done the freelancing thing, the business owner thing and is now doing the community thing. She does support and community outreach at GiveWP and she&#8217;s a GoDaddy Pro ambassador. Her biggest joy comes from talking to other community members about how to maintain and foster positive and inclusive environments on the web. Welcome, Allie. It&#8217;s so great to have you here today.
Allie: Hi, Tara. Hi, Liam. I&#8217;m really happy to be here. Thank you so much for having me.
Liam: You&#8217;re most welcome. Thanks for joining us out here in the Hallway. Can you tell us a little bit more about yourself, please?
Allie: Yeah, sure. I started using WordPress probably about five, six years ago. I made the transition from theater to web design. I remember finding WordPress and just thinking like, &#8220;Wow, this is great. I can build a website without having to learn how to code.&#8221; I&#8217;ve been using WordPress for work ever since. I live in North Miami, Florida. Tara and I just made a joke that even though it is pretty much winter by now, I&#8217;m in short sleeves and she&#8217;s in a sweater. I live in Miami with my fiancé. We&#8217;ve been together for three years. That&#8217;s pretty much me.
Tara: Did you say theater before this?
Allie: Yeah. I did theater the majority of my life. The first production I was when I was five. I did theater all through my childhood and through my adolescence. I went to Florida State University and I majored in theater. Halfway through that, I was just sort of like, &#8220;I don&#8217;t really like this as much as I thought I did. I don&#8217;t want to make a living out of this and being super competitive in this industry.&#8221; So I made a hard left turn into infotech, which is actually more similar than you would think. But yeah, I realized when I was in my very early 20s that that wasn&#8217;t really what I wanted to do.
Tara: I have a personal interest in asking that question because my daughter is currently a theater major in college, and she also is kind of discovering new aspects of herself. I think I don&#8217;t ever see her doing tech, but you never know. But I think that&#8217;s true, when you do it when you&#8217;re younger, as you get older and it becomes more competitive, you have to decide if you want to go all in. Like people who want to do it, they have to be all in and not do other things too.
Allie: It is very intense. I compare it to sports. There are statistics about so many kids play sports when they&#8217;re young but only like 1% are going to make it to a major league or something. And very, very, very few people quote-unquote make it in the performing arts. It&#8217;s very, very competitive. It&#8217;s an interesting industry to have worked in for so long and th...
