Dear WordPress Rockstar,
2012. This is your time! Make your blogging dreams come true.
You've helped the DFW WordPress Group grow from an intimate gathering of friends to one of the largest WordPress meetups on Planet Earth. We are a powerhouse of knowledge, networking, and support. The best of the best, far above the rest.
Last year we met on nine sunny Saturday afternoons. We had guest presentations from controversial media experts, juggling writers, almost-pregnant book authors, and world-renowned Jedi trainers. We learned and learned. We ate sushi ’til we burst.
In 2012 we will do more — a lot more. Oh, the places you will go!
NEW VENUE. Set your GPS on the lovely Richardson Civic Center. Easy to find. Easy to park. Spacious. Three projectors. Not a bad seat in the house. Did I mention we have three projectors?
NEW TIME (2PM-4PM). Meetup activities start at 1pm with pizza and networking. The Meeting starts at 2pm and ends at 4pm. Afterwards...the famous “networking” after-party.
NEW PRICE. This year the Meetup fee at the door is $10. What does $10 get you? It gets you a seat in the projectorlicious room, delicious food and beverage, and a spot on a coveted 12-outlet Rhino-brand electric power strip.
SEASON PASS. What could be better than seeing old friends and making new ones? How about leaving your cash under your mattress? Get a Season Pass for just $60 and have all your DFWWP Meetups prepaid for the whole year. With ten Meetups scheduled you’ll save 40%. You’ll also enjoy Pass Owner discounts to seminars and special events all year long. Get a DFWWP Season Pass today and you’ll sleep soundly all year. I guarantee it.

JANUARY MEETUP. We kick off 2012 with Mike Orren, media consultant and founder of Pegasus News. Mike will explain how “all media is new media in 2012″. Saturday, January 21 at the Richardson Civic Center. RSVP at Meetup.com
MORE WORKSHOPS. While you can learn a lot in a two-hour meetup. Imagine diving into a whole day of WordPress. Oh, the things you’ll learn! Each month you can enjoy a half-day (9:30AM-1PM) WordPress workshop on a laser-focused topic. Some will be newbie-level, some harder-level, some propellerhead-level (for those who like a challenge). Each workshop will conclude with pizza piled high and deep (1PM-2PM). Workshop students are welcome to attend the WordPress Meetup from 2PM-4PM at no extra charge.
SPECIAL THANKS to OUR LONG-TIME SPONSOR: Cultivatr
