Announcing a new Meetup for Hudson Valley WordPress Group!

What: Hudson Valley WordPress Meetup - WordPress 101

When: Wednesday, November 17,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Journal News
1 Gannett Drive
White Plains, NY 10604

Hi Everyone,

It was great to see those who attended WordCamp NYC. We will be having our November Meetup at the Journal News Building. This will be a great Meetup for beginners.

we are excited to welcome webologist Jacqueline DeVito, fresh off her wordcampNYC presentation. She will show us how easy it is to get started in wordpress.

Here is her introduction and more information on what she plans to present:

I?m Jacqueline DeVito and I?m a Webologist at WPStartups and a Project Manager at MarkNet Group, Inc. I?m from Hopewell Junction, and graduated from the University at Albany in 2008 with my BA in US History and Judaic Studies. I only took one computer related class in school (how to use Microsoft Excel) but thank my Generation Y membership to my fast knowledge and understanding of computers, the internet, and WordPress. However, the exception is that WordPress is so easy to use, anyone can master it. I am living proof that WordPress is the best route for creating and maintaining a website, because I only heard of WordPress back in March of 2010.

As Webologist at WPStartups, I help small businesses create, and most importantly, maintain their sites for a small fiscal investment. I am able to create a site, give them SEO friendly content, and complete the project in about 5 to 7 business days. From there, I show my clients how to use and maintain the back-end of their WordPress site. I go over all the basics of their site, so that they have full control of it. Without the easy and usability of WordPress, I would not be able to do what I do.

During WordPress 101, I will be going over the absolute basics and fundamentals of a WordPress site. Topics will include:

  • Logging in to the back end
  • Explaining what the Dashboard is
  • How to create, and then edit a page
  • Categories vs. Tags
  • Which plug-ins I use, and why
  • Adding images, files, and PDFS
  • Adding links
  • Managing comments
  • How to manage your sidebar
  • Adding Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to your site

The effortless use of WordPress to build and maintain your site is the only way to go. I tell my clients that if you can send an e-mail, you can manage your WordPress site. And, if it is good enough for CBS New York, Carnival Cruise Lines, and the NFL blogs, I think it is good enough for me.
