Supercharge Your WordPress with Aaron Hockley

Aaron Hockley, a long-time Portlander, photographer, and WordPress user, will be talking us through what we need to do to become WordPress power users:

You've mastered the difference between a post and a page. You know how to publish articles and embed a photo. You understand that your article titles should include keywords. Perhaps you've put some thought into your writing process.  Let's explore a bit about being a "power user" with WordPress. We'll talk about some of the features of WordPress that can help out a more experienced user. We'll explore a few concepts and plugins that can be used to improve the writing and publishing process.  The overriding theme is how to get the most out of your blog to allow for better articles presented to the most readers in the best fashion.

We'll have time afterwords for mingling and general discussion.

    Aaron is a knowledgable and annimated speaker. I will be following up on DiggDigg, which sounds like it might offer features not provided by Google Analytics. I am not a blogger, but he had a lot of interesting tips that would probably be useful for composing any kind of correspondence. I am definitely stealing his white on black PowerPoint style. Cool.

    Seemed mostly about supercharging your blogging, with some WP plugins mentioned. Only the title of the presentation needed adjusting.

    Well thought out and logically presented.

    My first meeting. Great presentation. Even though I don't blog, I now have some great tips to offer web clients that may.

    An excellent meeting that delivered on its Title and Description.
    There is always more depth possible in future meetings too.

    I attended Aaron's supercharge your wordpress-blog meeting tonight and was very impressed with the presentation; one of the purposes I came to the meeting with was to possibly network to find any interested web designers to help me develop my website. I'm not a tech-y at all so it would be me telling you what I want and you being able to do it. If anyone is interested or would like to recommend someone, please email me at: [masked] Thanks, Bev

    I won't be there tonight, but I'd like to schedule a few sessions of tutoring to launch my use of WP as CM. Not looking for a "designer", as I already have 3 websites, just someone to meet with me at least once FTF to help me crack the mysteries of themes, etc. I've used AGLive for years, so I'm more used to starting with a "blank page".
    Thanks.
