I started the Portland WordPress user group to provide a monthly forum for WordPress users in Portland, and the response has been amazing. Even though we’re only a couple months into existence, a lot of people have come together around WordPress.
Recently I’ve found my time and energies spread thin amongst various projects. In order to focus on a smaller set of projects (and let the remaining projects thrive with the attention they deserve), I’m stepping back from a few things. I’m pleased to announce that Kelly Guimont is assuming the leadership role for our group. Kelly assisted with WordCamp Portland and I look forward to seeing her develop pdxwp further. I’ve turned over information on all pending pdxwp issues to Kelly, please contact her with any questions.
I’ll continue to lead the organization of WordCamp Portland (and should have some announcements about that event within a few weeks).
I look forward to remaining involved with pdxwp while I focus more of my time on other efforts.
