WordChicks Melbourne

Hey Girls!

In the middle of all the WordCamp goings on I've still been bubbling away about what we're going to do at WordChicks this month.. and YES, even though WordCamp will have just been, we will still meet up, unless you all think it's too much!!

The program for this month will be as follows (note the later start time)

6.00pm, Arrive, meet and greet, chat.
6.15pm,  News and announcements.

6.20pm, Talk:: Helena Denley is going to do a talk on "How to prepare and use images in WordPress (or on the web in general)" - I've only just dropped her in it, so in the coming days this may get tweaked a little, but that's the general idea.

6.45pm:: WordCamp reports, and we'll ask girls who were there to fill us in on the highlights and lowlights. I'd love to get some good discussion from you all about how we can best encourage and foster participation in the community from you all and it seems as though hot on the heels of WordCamp would be a good time for that!! So if you'll be at WordCamp, take notes!! We want to know what we did well, and what could be improved!

7.30pm - Head behind the factory to Hare and Grace for drinks/dinner for those interested in carrying on the discussion.

Times are flexy, but we hope by starting that little bit later you'll all be able to get there after work, and grab a bite on the way if you're starving...

    Still working on an assessment which is overdue so may not make tonight although I'd like to. Changing rsvp to no so you're aware, but I may quickly pop in. Looking forward to next one. Hope it goes well. Jane

    Apologies all, I've been dosing myself up with lemon tea all day trying to stave off a cold, and I really don't like being generous with my colds. See you at the next one.

    I'd like to attend a WordChicks meetup but am already quite knowedgeable on working with images for the web, as I do a lot of Photoshop work with images as a web designer (but don't really know how to market a blog to be profitable, or do much with extensive customisation in WordPress). If there is a need for anyone to help out with the image editing lecture, please let me know!

    I can't get into WordCamp, booked out. Even if I squeeze in, still could be useful to follow up on stuff not able to be covered there, and WC may stimulate questions also.
