    Despite some minor hiccups, I think the initial meeting went well.
    John did a great job as organizer/presenter.
    I liked the venue and will attend future meetups.

    I think this group is awesome and the people in it are enthusiastic and creative! John, you are a great organizer that knows how to get the group to interact while covering important ground. WordPress is such a good web marketing and networking tool and is becoming so popular now. As we mentioned, Leon and I have a web design and development business. Leon uses WordPress for various projects and it is important to learn how to post well and get traffic to the site. We are looking to network and help others with WordPress projects as well as others helping us. We need to learn more on using WordPress as a CMS and more about better search engine optimization as well. Thanks for putting this learning experience together for us. Looking forward to seeing you at the future meetings.

    Unfortunately I cannot attend tomorrow, and I don't know if I need to learn about Wordpress as a CMS, but I could definitely use some private lessons on customizing my Wordpress blog. Please message me if you are able to teach some basic Wordpress techniques.

    This is an excellent way to meet people who use Wordpress and can help with projects. It is a wonderful way to learn more about what we can accomplish with Wordpress.
