Speaker Spotlight: John Lynn


If Mel Blanc was the man of a thousand voices, then John Lynn is the man of a thousand websites. Seriously. The guy owns and operates so many, that we can’t even list them all.

But when he’s not working on his website about the medical records industry or his website about “Dancing with the Stars” or his website about blogging (didn’t we say he runs a thousand websites?), then he’s playing Ultimate Frisbee and even organizes Las Vegas tournaments.

Lynn’s Las Vegas WordCamp 2013 presentation is called “To Do or Not to Do: Things Bloggers Should Do and Things Bloggers Shouldn’t Waste Time On,” and we had a chance to sit down and get to know him better. Here’s what he had to say.

LVWC: What do you love most about WordPress?

JL: I love that WordPress makes it easy for anyone to publish anything.  It works across every niche and can make anyone into a publisher.  You can choose something you’re passionate about and grow a following for almost nothing. That’s powerful!

LVWC: What are your favorite WordPress plugins?

JL: Duplicate Post, Peter’s Collaboration E-mails, Role Manager, Tweet Old Post, and any plugin which has stats.

LVWC: Whether you live here or are a visitor, what do you love about Las Vegas?

JL: I love the great weather, the great business environment (no tax), and the people.

LVWC: Favorite TV show and why.

JL: This question is ironic since I run a network of reality TV blogs. My favorite TV show to watch is “Amazing Race.”  My favorite TV show to blog about is a tie between “Dancing with the Stars” and “So You Think You Can Dance.”  My favorite new show is “Nashville.”

LVWC: Are you smarter than a 4th Grader? Do you think you can dance?

JL: Yes, but you can see my 4th grader’s blog: http://www.curtislynn.com where you can see some cool minions.  I love to dance, but I’m not sure I think I can dance. That’s never stopped me before.
