John Saddington at Atlanta WordCamp

Are you new to WordPress? We will spend the hour on basics then we will break for 15 minutes before our WordPress Technical Meetup starting at 7:30.

You are welcome to stay for the second meetup at no extra charge, but if you are not familiar with WordPress and are not at all technical then it may be over your head and you are welcomed to sneak on out.


August Meeting MashingUp

August 19, 2009

Mashup Night!

We will connect with 2 blog networks that will propagate your posts to your profile and to friends in your network.

You will need ftp access to your site and/or access to – edit or widgets on your site.
So bring your laptop/netbook.

Connect to MSN/Bing
Will Bing over take Google? I don’t thinks so, not this year anyway. But it will be an important aspect to any seo work because of it’s new relationship with Yahoo.

We will make a direct connection with our WordPress site and Bing that will almost guarantee an indexing (not a positioning). We will add a plugin for this. You will also be able to duplicate this process with Google as well.

What you will need:
Wordpress 2.7+ or 2.8+ on your host
a hotmail or msn email account

We have a lot of work cut out for us so get their early if you need extra time.

Look forward to seeing you all there.

The first meeting will be about organizing the group and how we will network and redesigning the Atlanta WordPress Group site, goals and ideas.

Have any ideas on:

Location of the meeting
It should include a good (free)wifi connection and a place for a large group to talk.

Day & Date
I thinking maybe Saturday may not be the best day:

Meeting Topics
Some topics that come to mind: seo plugins, calendars, css, different themes, items that should be on the website: members list, job board, announcements, and etc..

There¬† is a lot going in in Atlanta on the 18th, barcamp, L5Ps Hallowwen Party and more I’m sure, so if you can’t make it please leave a note, ideas or what ever.
