Created for novices, newbies, beginners and intermediate users

Many small business owners want a do-it-yourself website, yet quickly find themselves overwhelmed and uncertain of where to turn for help.

Does this sound like you?

  • You’re a business owner, freelancer or hobbyist who wants a great-looking site that you have complete control over.
  • You want a site that’s easy to manage without learning a coding language, or going to night-school web design classes.
  • You want a site that’s easy to manage without learning a coding language, or going to night-school web design classes.

Then, this Meetup group is the right one for you.

Stop thinking WordPress is a magical dirt-simple website solution. Join us monthly to share and solve your WordPress struggles.

We start with a short introduction, share a current struggle, and then get to work on our sites with guided assistance from experienced WordPress users.

    • What we'll do
    Sometime this year, possibly as soon as April, WordPress will be releasing a huge update to their main page/post editing tool called "Gutenberg". While this will have a major impact on how users interact with WordPress, it will also greatly impact how sites are built in the future.

    This will be a relatively non-technical look at Gutenberg. We'll talk about how it works, how to use it, how to start playing with it today, and how to get your site ready for it.

    I'll also encourage a lot of discussion in this session, so if you're familiar with Gutenberg please attend and share your views. There are a lot of opinions about how this will shape the future of WordPress (both good and bad) and your opinions are just as valid as mine. No one knows for sure what's going to happen, so hearing from various viewpoints is a valuable thing to do right now.

    If you're a WordPress user, designer, or developer, you need to quickly begin to understand how Gutenberg will affect what you do.

    The Meetup is free because of our awesome sponsors, however we ask you to please RSVP so we can save a space for you.

    Be sure to bring your laptop if possible, and you're welcome to bring your own lunch if you'd like.

    Note: This event is from A Brighter Web, the same as is found here: https://www.meetup.co...

    You can RSVP in either location.

    See you then!

    • What to bring
    Ideally bring your laptop (most people do, though it's not required) and you're welcome to bring your lunch.

    April Wier will cover classic sales techniques and update them for the digital age. We will also dig into the psychology that not only keeps some of us under-pricing but keeps us from closing the deal, at all. You don’t have to be cheesy, sleazy, or greasy to be a great salesperson. You will learn to sell with style and walk away with increased confidence to go out and make more money.


    We're a group of local WordPress users who get together to share our knowledge and experience, and to meet other WordPress users in the area. This WordPress Meetup is open to all who are eager to learn more about WordPress --- the software, the community, and the business!

    You're welcome to bring your lunch!

    Please RSVP so we can plan ahead. Be respectful of others. A 50% no-show rate isn't fair to anyone.

    See you soon!

    Come join us for a collaborative session of helping one another with WordPress related issues using the 'Ask Me Anything' style: You talk about the problem and we try to give you guidance or point you in the right direction. Come prepared with some questions and get to know the other people in our WordPress community.

    If you have problems, bring them and we will do our best to help you through them. If you have skills, this is a great opportunity to help others. Or even if you just want to come and learn something new, we can help with that as well.

    All skill levels are welcome.
