July Meeting Wrap-Up (Making Money Blogging)

In July, we were pleased to welcome Sam Churchill of dailywireless.org! 18 people attended, and the discussion was lively and informative.

The slide show from Sam’s presentation on making money blogging is available on Slideshare.

Also, we’re considering a change to our meeting time.  Please vote in the poll!

Our next meeting will be August 20, and will feature both technical and non-technical discussion of WordPress themes.

June Meeting Recap

We had a great turnout and a great space for our June meeting at the Open Source Bridge conference.  Thank you to Audrey Eschright for arranging our session!

We announced our poll to decide on a date for the July meeting, since we didn’t want to meet the same night as Ignite Portland. Several people did take time to vote, and the meeting was later set for Thursday, July 23, 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Webtrends.

Aaron Hockley gave us an update on WordCamp Portland (September 19-20 at Webtrends). What WordCamp Portland needs most right now are sponsors! ¾ of event costs last year were covered by sponsors, which keeps event costs low.  Financial or in-kind sponsorships are welcome.  Contact @ahockley or @dalechumbley if you would like to be a sponsor or have leads for sponsors. For WordCamp Portland updates, subscribe to the WordCamp Portland blog or follow @wordcampdx on Twitter.

We then discussed the recent WordPress 2.8 release (see WordPress 2.8 Overview for an outline).

As noted above, next meeting 7/23 at 6:00 p.m. at Webtrends, 851 SW 6th Avenue, Suite 1600. Hope to see you there!
