We are actually going to have our first meeting!

All,

This meet up was set about a year ago and I have recently taken over the group.  I cannot do Thursdays and so have set the first meeting for next week on Wednesday 18th Feb in the Gypsy Moth in Greenwich.

This is, after a few years, the inaugural meeting so hopefully a few can make it.

We can discuss anything Wordpress that you want to.

If you have better suggestions for meeting times/venues etc. let me know for consideration next time.

I look forward to seeing you next week.

Regards

Jim

    Thanks to those that came to the meet up last night. It was great to meet like minded people and discuss the way we want to develop the group in the future.
    I am thinking of scheduling the next meeting for Tuesday 24th March which doesn't seem to clash with anything else.
    Cheers

    Great to get together for the first time. Some excellent ideas for how to structure the group and another meeting in the diary already. Glad I went!

    Sorry Jim . Unable to make it tomorrow - not fully over the norovirus at moment- and certainly you wouldn't want it to be passed on around your group. So big apologies from me. Tony

  • Jenny W.

    Apologies for not being able to make it. I forgot that PHPUK is the next day & need to get things prepared. I hope you have a wonderful first gathering and I'll see you all at the next one.

    Anyone else want to kick off the first meet up? There are lots of new cafe's and nice pubs in Greenwich.

      Hi Ross. I went to a couple of the London Wordpress meets a couple/three years ago. Enjoyed them but very noisy so wanted something more local to me in Dartford. Am retired so daytimes or evenings ok with me.

    I live in Dartford and am interested if there's a Wordpress group near to me. Greenwich is about as far as I would want to drive towards London. Ideally 10 mile maximum radius of Dartford, but keeping south of the river. If anyone has other ideas for a location then please let me know. Being retired I can make day times or evenings.

    Hi everyone, I have a background in Internet Marketing working for a PPC agency, but am currently freelancing and would like to gain some experience in SEO for Wordpress and blogging. Is this a particularly active group? I await a response or not!

    January 9, 2015

  • Gareth

    Hi folks. I signed up and then realised that the group may be a little dysfuctional. Is there any interest in scheduling something a little earlier than February next year?

    • Johanne L.

      i think the issue we were having is somewhere to meet up. Do you have any where in mind?

      July 21, 2014

    • Gareth

      If Hither Green isn't too far there's a cafe here I can book. Capacity for 25 comfortably.

  • Johanne L.

    I do not think this meetup is going to happen, if this group has been started in 2012 - almost 2 years ago, and there hasn't been a meet up, I really cannot see why it will have one now. The person that started this group is not even responding.

    Sorry for any inconvenience I may have caused by trying to make this happen.

    Regards,
    Johanne

    • Ross T.

      I'd love to see it happen. It would be great to have something like this is Greenwich. We started experimenting with different formats with the London WordPress developer meet up (WP-hooked). It started a more discussion led format and finished with bring along a project to get guidance. Maybe something similar could work whilst helping everyone involved :-)

    Hi Johanne, thanks for responding - I obviously won't make my way there then.

      I am up for meeting up, I am not sure if a venue was confirmed, but i am up for meeting at National Maritime Museum cafe

      Hi Johanne – I can't make the new date unfortunately as flying to India for a couple of weeks on that date. Hope to make the next one. Thanks for taking the initiative on this. Best, Emma

    Hi guys, I'm keen to join but the Maritime Museum closes at 5pm tomorrow. It's open until 8pm Thursdays, or we'll need another venue.

  • Esme

    Would be interested in joining the Greenwich group but this date clashes with the London monthly Wordpress meetup so I'll be going to that one tomorrow. Hope to meet you at a future date.

    January 27, 2014

  • Tony S.

    Good luck with the new group. I've added your details here http://wiki.wpuk.org/WordPress_UK_London#WordPress_User_Group_Greenwich and have tweeted on the WPUK account https://twitter.com/wpunitedkingdom/status/427826012878299137 and mailing list.

    I'm keen to meet up with this group but the meet up tomorrow clashes with other commitments, I'll be at the next one hopefully.

    I'd like to come along to this but the London WordPress group are also meeting on Tuesday 28 January. Never mind, hope to catch your next one.

    Hi Sarah and Tony. I see the last post about this was back in May, so not sure if this ever got off the ground. I'd be keen to meet and the Maritime Museum is a great idea. I'm a professional writer but have been putting off starting my blog for a year due to work deadlines etc at home (Sydney). I'm using the transition period, ie the move to London, to get it going. So I can't offer WP expertise, but can barter copy and editing know-how if needed! Would be great to hear from you guys or anyone interested. Emma

      Hi Emma thanks for your kind words on my site. I do have another couple (sort of the same) sites on wordpress.com These are at: http://DMWDdeptfordWW...­ and a very similar one at http://DMWDhmsBirnbec...­.

      Hi Emma, sorry I hit enter before I had finished. The theme I am using is a free one called Chateau but there is only a slight difference in the stories4children site and the DMWD sites. That is that they run either "sidebar, content" or "content, sidebar", in other words the sidebars can be either on the left or the right of your main content page. speak soon, regards Tony

    Good on you Sarah for bringing the WordPress User Group - Greenwich, back from the brink of extinction.
    So many great looking meet-ups are in Central London, which is Ok but means a very late night getting back home. So I'm wondering if this one could be a welcome change. Perhaps other members could say what are their best days and times, what do you say?
