Dear WordPress Rockstar,

Wooo hooo! DFW WordPress Meetup is officially 600 Rockstars Strong!

Thank you, fellow member, for placing DFWWP at the leading edge of a revolution in global communications. This open source revolution is bringing transparency, accountability, and the people's voice to business, politics, and countless other areas of our lives.

Thanks, also, to esteemed DFWWP member Randy Hoyt (, who has been our sole Sponsor for the past year. Randy's sponsorship has helped buy a projector, a handheld PA system, food, and supplies over the past few months. I encourage additional members to consider sponsoring the group -- Randy has received countless leads and he often turns away business thanks to his heavy client workload.

I especially want to thank Wayne Batchelder and The Art Institute of Dallas for hosting us these past few months. They have been gracious and generous with their facility and resources. Our January Meetup will have over 100 people in attendance and the Institute has provided a generous space for this month's 2010 Kickoff Event with John P. (If you were on the Wait List, you should now be admitted. Also, I am requesting a $3 voluntary donation for this year's Meetups. Feel free to give more, or not at all.)

In just eight days, Dallas' most famous, colorful, and high-profile blogger, John P., will be presenting an informative and entertaining talk on how to Make More Money with WordPress, Social Media and Analytics.

John P. is the CEO of iFusion Labs, the company that brings you Woopra, host of the popular Wealth Nation podcast, former Chief Marketing Officer for Layered Tech, and the founder of He's also the lead organizer of WordCamp Dallas and likely the most prolific WordCamp videographer on the planet. His personal blog, One Man's Blog, receives 10-20,000 visitors each day and he is an outspoken advocate of helping others to achieve similar success.
