I propose Tuesday, Oct. 11, at 7:30 p.m. for a first meetup. We'll get to know one another, learn about experience levels, and discuss things we'd like to cover at future meetups, which will depend in large part on who shows up and where their interests lie.
I'm suggesting the Panera on Peters Road as a meetup venue, but we can change that if it's terribly inconvenient. If you have questions or any topics you'd especially like to touch on at this first meetup or at future ones, please speak up and we'll see what we can do.
Please do RSVP if you can make it (and un-RSVP if your plans change) so that I can know whether to plan on snacking by myself or with company. :)
Introduce yourself. Name, work/hobbies/projects, blogging experience/history, what's your blog url, twitter account, etc. Exchange business cards if desired. I'll give a brief synopsis of the differences between WordPress.com and self-hosted installs of Wordpress. Bring a WordPress question you don't know the answer to, and we'll see if we can find an answer. Anything you'd like to share? Books or web sites on WordPress or blogging that have been helpful (or not)? Chat about topics we might like to cover at future meetups, so we can figure out where to go from here. After all that, is anybody interested in coming to future meetups? Any opinions regarding time/place? Don't forget to blog the meetup!
