Dear WordPress Rockstar,
Q1 is officially over. Are you going to step up your business in Q2? Get a better handle on the social media phenomenon and do some valuable networking. This month is packed with events from our own group and sister groups. Get ready to RSVP your heart out!
April 3 - DFW Twitter Meetup Group
Tomorrow, "get your Tweet on" at the first official Meetup of the new, turbocharged, Twitter Meetup Group. Some of you know that I started the Twitter meetup on the day after Oprah discovered Twitter. I held a few meetings, but I gave up the group to focus on WordPress. It languished under different moderators until Lissa Duty scooped it up and ran! On Tuesday night, April 3, Hear Patty Farmer talk about "To Klout or Not to Klout" and do some great networking at the Addison Social House. RSVP.
April 11 - Techcrawl
Who doesn't like free drinks? That is just one reason to attend TechCrawl on April 11th. TechCrawl is a technology, entrepreneurship, and innovation networking event. TechCrawl exists to support innovators and entrepreneurs in our region by facilitating networking in a casual environment. Visit www.InnovateDFW.com for more about this new program. You will be networking with the rockstars of the local Dallas Startup scene. April 11th. 5-7 p.m. AT&T Foundry. Free Drinks and Snacks. Register: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/3145543405
April 21-22 - Wellness Expo in Addison
The very observant among you will wonder "why a wellness event is listed in this tech email"? Well that is because you cannot have too much wellness. With obesity and other lifestyle maladies on the rise, it's a great idea to upgrade your inner software/wetware. So I'm giving you 2 free tickets to attend the Wellness Expo in Addison (that I've been producing for 18 years). Just print this email (or show it on your phone) and you will get two free admissions. WellnessExpo.net
