    PDXWP Site Backed by Network Redux! 

    I used the Network Redux-hosted gathering at Beer & Blog a few months ago to secure a free lifetime account for the Portland WordPress user group so I could move it off of my own paid hosting plan. While it took me a while to get the site actually migrated, we’ve been running smoothly here for a month or so now.

    When I made the announcement here, I threw in an offhand reference to the upcoming domain registration costs for the site as well, hoping to get some kind soul(s) to kick in for renewal costs. Frankly, I figured I’d just hit up the user group attendees in January, collect a few bucks, & call it good.

    Not so — instead, I received an unsolicited email a week or so ago from Network Redux’s CEO Thomas Brenneke in response to this earlier post: “We’d like to take care of your domain registrations for the two years. Can you tell me what domains you need registered/renewed and my team will get you squared away?” And they did.

    So, to Thomas, Damien & the rest of the Network Redux team — thank you on behalf of the whole PDXWP user group!

    (I can also unequivocably recommend Network Redux, as they’re now providing the hosting for OurPDX & a few other sites I manage. Yes, I’m now a paying customer of theirs & very happy with both the service & support.)

    January 21: Aaron Hockley On How To Launch a Blog 

    UPDATE: If you missed the meeting, or if you’d like to review an outline of Aaron’s talk, you can find it at Another Blogger. Thank you, Aaron!

    Actually, the name of Aaron’s talk is “After Launching a Couple Dozen Blogs, I Figured Out how to Do it Right.” Aaron presented this talk at WordCamp Seattle, and has done several blog posts around this theme as well. Aaron is experienced at starting new WordPress blogs, including his highly successful SocialPhotoTalk site. Even if you’re an experienced blogger, if you’re thinking about starting another blog (and who isn’t?), Aaron Hockley has great information for you.

    We’ll also have time for networking and socializing. If you’ve got questions about WordPress 2.9 (actually, we’re already up to 2.9.1), someone might be able to help you!

    As usual, we’ll be at Webtrends, 851 SW 6th Avenue on the 16th floor. We usually get into Webtrends right around 6:00, but if you come later than that, just let the security guard know that you’re coming to the WordPress meeting and he’ll punch in the elevator code for you.

    Hope to see you there! Please let us know on Upcoming if you’ll be attending.
