    During this FREE Meetup we'll continue working on our WordPress sites that we started building in the last session. Just like the last Meetup, we'll be very hands-on, working through the steps of adding more pages, images, and posts to your new WordPress website. Please note: If you couldn't make it to the last session of WordPress 101 class, don't worry - there's still time to get caught up and on track. WHAT TO BRING: Laptops are encouraged since you'll be working on your own website. If you don't have a laptop, you can team up with someone in the class or follow along with the demonstration. You'll probably want to take notes, so bring a notebook and pen/pencil. WHAT YOU SHOULD DO BEFORE CLASS: * Keep working on your website—write the content for your pages and blog posts. * As you're working on your website, write down any questions you have so you remember to ask them at the next Meetup. PLEASE RSVP so we know how many refreshments to provide. Many thanks to First State Bank & Trust for sponsoring WP Fremont!
