Hood River WordPress Meetup

We’ll be having our regular Portland meeting on August 19, but meanwhile, I wanted to let you know that Callie Carroll is hosting an informal WordPress meetup/unconference in Hood River this Sunday, August 1! Here’s the information from her email to our Google Group (I didn’t post her phone #/email, but you can contact her via Twitter or leave a comment here):

For anyone interested in a short jaunt away from Portland this
weekend, I am hosting a last-minute WordPress unconference/meeting/
camp/chat, at 2pm on Sunday, at this location:

Ground Coffee
12 Oak Street
Hood River, OR

Hood River is family-friendly, and full of shopping and restaurants,
so bring your non-WP-loving family and set them loose. Street parking
is free on the weekends.

Wifi is available, and coffee, beer, and sandwiches are sold on the
premises at Ground. The shop can be very busy, so we will move to the
semi-private office at the end of the hall if that’s more appropriate,
and a sign will be posted to direct you. I don’t have a projector, but
bring your laptop and a VNC client!

RSVP to me privately via email, phone, SMS, or Tweet (@cusability), so
I can get an idea of the size of the group, and plan on having enough
chairs and tables.

July…what day is it?

I’m emerging from our family-wide summer break to remind you about our next meeting, and I can’t even remember what the date is! But the calendar says that this Thursday is July 15, and that it is indeed the third Thursday in July.

Let’s talk content, shall we? We talked about SEO a little bit last month, with several people strongly asserting that good content is more important than any other SEO technique. Be prepared to tell us what you write about, or what you want to write about, and how you keep coming up with content on a regular basis. I always learn something new from someone else on this subject.

See you on Thursday, 6:00 p.m. at Webtrends, 851 SW 6th Avenue, Suite 1600. RSVP on Upcoming.
