Join me for a preview of my upcoming WordCamp Austin (https://2017.austin.wordcamp.org/sessions/) presentation on how bloggers without technical experience can use Google Analytics and Jetpack. Both tools give us insights into our audience we don’t gain through comments. I will show you how to install both, how to use them, and why there is no need to be intimidated by them.

Google Analytics and Jetpack are available on both WordPress.com and your self hosted website. All experience levels welcome. There will be a short presentation, time for Q&A, and networking after.

HOSTED BY: Winstina Hughes

SPEAKER BIO: Winstina Hughes started her web design company Planning Write six years ago and volunteers as a WordPress NYC Meetup co-organizer. She views the world through the lens of a planner, working at a state transit agency and in local government on market research, community development, and vision zero initiatives. She created her first WordPress blog for a Geographic Information Systems assignment, and followed it soon after with one on community development and suburban planning (http://planningwrite.com/courses/2015/12/17/wordcamp-us-2015-presentation-video/). Winstina's presented at WordCamp US in 2015 (https://2015.us.wordcamp.org/speakers/) and 2016 (https://2016.us.wordcamp.org/speakers/), and WordCamp NYC in 2015. She bleeds scarlet, loves hip-hop, and adores WordPress software.

All experience levels welcome.
