We had some great discussion at last night’s meetup about the Northeast PA WordPress community. The key idea is that we’re here not just to meet once a month and have presentations, but to help and support each other – in our WordPress endeavors as well as other things that we have going on in Northeast Pennsylvania.

So the idea was raised to have some form of online discussion area for the group, whether it be a mailing list, forum, group blog, or what have you. The important thing is to make sure that whatever we choose is something that everyone is willing and able to use.

Please voice your opinion in our poll at http://www.nepawp.com/2014/01/discussion-forum-poll/ !

Howdy NEPA WordPressers!

First off, I want to thank all of you for your participation in the Northeast PA WordPress group!  Joe and I are very excited by how well this has been received and we’re looking forward to many more great meetups.

Our next meetup will be in September.  We want to mix things up a bit and try out a new venue.  We are actively looking, but if you have any ideas please send them over!  Ideally, the place should have a projector (or a computer-ready TV) or at least a screen and we can try to make arrangements for a projector.  We’re aiming for Tuesday, September 10th, but that may change depending on the venue.

At the meetup, Joe Casabona will cover his list of top plugins for WordPress.  If you have any feature that you’d like to find a plugin for or a specific plugin that you’d like him to talk about, shoot us a message.

While we’re gearing up for the next meetup, we don’t want you to feel like you’re in a WordPress void.  There’s a new WordPress-centric news source that just opened its doors – Torque (http://torquemag.io/), by WP Engine.  Though they’ve just launched, you may notice that they have quite a bit of older content – they took over the reigns of WP Daily’s old content, so that it wouldn’t be lost to the bit bucket.  WP Daily closed down earlier this month.

Of course, if you want to know what’s going on in the world of WordPress, straight from the horse’s mouth, you’ll have to watch Matt Mullenweg’s State of the Word address from this past weekend’s WordCamp San Francisco.

Want to make sure that you’re getting the latest from us?  First, check out your Meetup.com settings to make sure that 1) you’re signed up and 2) you’re getting e-mails at least from organizers, but I suggest the checking the message boards option as well.  Now, go follow us on your social network of choice.  We’re probably most active on Twitter, but we at least post announcements about the groups on all of these outlets:

Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/pages/NEPA-WordPress/111033269054887)

Twitter (https://twitter.com/nepawp)

Google+ (https://plus.google.com/communities/111140072222561993021)

Meetup.com (http://www.meetup.com/nepawp)

Our web site (http://www.nepawp.com)

Over the next month or so, we’ll be doing some work to the web site, as well as trying to add more benefit via our social networks by posting relevant news about WordPress, as well as WordPressers in Northeast PA, so keep an eye out!  If you have a project or topic you’d like featured, get in contact with us.

You can get in touch with us by using the contact link on Meetup.com (http://www.meetup.com/nepawp/suggestion/) or the contact page on the web site (http://www.nepawp.com/contact/), as well as posting in the Meetup.com discussion boards or hitting us up on Twitter.

Hey Folks,

Just a reminder that we are doing a social meetup this Thursday from 5:30pm to Question Mark at The Arena in Wilkes-Barre (380 Coal St. Wilkes-Barre, PA 18702).

RSVP: http://www.meetup.com/nepawp/events/143237152/

Since this is more of a networking thing, there's no set agenda, bring your business cards, friends, and questions (heck, they even have WiFi if you wanna do a hands on demo). It doesn't have to be strictly WP either; we can talk all things web development/design/SEO/tech! They have food and drinks and TVs and music so it should be a good time.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, let me know! See you Thursday (hopefully)!

Joe

PS- I'll also be at the NEPA Tech Meetup at Jack's on Wednesday if you want to talk then too.
