I would like to create a separate web site for the Northampton/Western Mass/Pioneer Valley WordPress group, as well as, a Twitter account and possibly a Facebook page to help with the marketing and networking of the group.
I'm drawing inspiration from successful larger WordPress Meetup groups (Boston, NYC, DC, Atlanta, Austin, Nashville, etc.), because I think that there are enough WordPress fans, SEO gurus, theme designers, plugin developers, bloggers, and beginners in the area to grow the group. We've drawn people from as far as Hartford, CT and Brattleboro, VT.
Kelly and Mel had started a site at valleysummit.org, but that was their project for a broader web developer/designer audience and annual event. I'd like to focus on WordPress since it has a pretty extensive and varied ecosystem around it and bring in the non-developers and non-designers as well.
I would like to crowdsource a new domain name for the group. I created a poll at http://strawpoll.me/4532
Please take a moment and cast your vote. If you have a suggestion for a name not on the list, please email me at [address removed].
