206 Corporate Lake Dr, Columbia (USA)
The Hatchery is located at 206 Corporate Lake, Dr. in Columbia, MO.
This session is going to be just about as deep as "When You Give a Mouse a Cookie," since keywords, tagging and search engine optimization are really complicated. Fun stuff! Especially when you start thinking about analysing performance. Let's take a look together and start writing to optimize for SEO and our findability in search engines.
Analytics will be covered in a future session.
It also includes a review of everyone's stick-to-itiveness regarding their editorial calendars.
Evening will conclude with Show and Tell plus Tech Time. Bring laptops if you wish to work on your website, or at least bring the login information to your website so you can use my computer.
When you arrive at The Hatchery, ring the doorbell and I will come let you in.

This Meetup is exclusively for people working professionally in the WordPress ecosystem, whether as a developer, designer, trainer, or support person.
We've found that our Help Desk Meetups do not allow enough time for the self-identified experts in the room to hang out and chat about WordPress and what they are doing. This Meetup is for them.
If you are working with WordPress in a professional manner and know it well, then this Meetup is for you. Come meet the other WordPress experts in the area and network professionally. If you are a beginner with WordPress, this Meetup is not for you.
We will also use this Meetup to plan and decide our monthly presentation-based Meetup which happens on the fourth Monday of every month.
Beer and pizza will be provided.

We are starting the new year off with a talk from Cory Miller, the former President and Founder of iThemes which was acquired by Liquidweb.
Cory is going to be speaking to our community about managing the emotional roller coaster of being an entrepreneur.
Cory says, "Life is like an iceberg. Too often we only see or share the good and great, the sunshine and success (or the above the surface stuff). But in reality, we all suffer and struggle at some point with things buried under the surface.
Particularly, in the online world we are immersed in, it’s too easy to get lost, or to suffer in silence."
Cory will be sharing his personal experiences and mental health story and how he manages his iceberg in business and life.

How to acquire followers online in 2020!
Building a website is one thing, driving traffic and marketing your site is a completely different strategy - especially when you’re going it on your own. The clearer your goals and understanding of how your website best serves you, the better you will be able to build and optimize the website you really need for your personal and professional growth.
WordPress is the best and most powerful platform for building websites and publishing content. The thing is, it’s only a tool and it requires a marketing strategy to truly leverage its full potential. At this meetup, learn how to maximize your WordPress website with the DAC Model. Join author, podcaster and marketing strategist Scott Winterroth (https://blogyouwant.com/) for a deep dive into exactly how to grow a following online with the Digital Acquisition Cycle™, a marketing model he designed to help others understand website marketing. Learn current insights and how this strategy could be applied to your business and leave with new clarity for where to invest your marketing efforts.
This will be a nontechnical presentation suitable for all user levels. As usual, we'll have time for Q&A and small group discussion after the presentation.

7:00 PM: 7 Things To Look For In A WordPress Plugin
Over my 10 plus years of working with WordPress I’ve probably had a good look at close to 1,000 plugins. While I love advising which plugins you must have, the truth is, what plugins you must have is a function of exactly what you need to accomplish with your site.
But over time I’ve learned what features make a plugin great no matter what it does. This presentation will help you understand just what makes a plugin great.

You've created your WordPress website and are presenting your awesome content to the world. But that's just you barking into the void! How are you going to let those appreciative people respond to your content?
Now we are talking forms!
Bog standard WordPress doesn't address the need for input forms adequately, so a huge market of forms plugins has sprung up to meet the need. And many of those form tools have in turn spawned their own ecosystems of add-ons that fill ever more particular needs.
At our first meeting of the new decade, we will survey many of the big players in the field to see the pros and cons at a high level.
Then we are going to drill down into one solution to see how easy it can be to create forms. Plus, we will see how to use custom code to add really particular validation routines when you have really specific validation rules that aren't covered by the form plugin's standard routines.
And if you have your own favorite form plugin, come prepared to add your two bits to the conversation!
See you on Tuesday, January 21.
Don't forget to RSVP!

WORDCAMP 2020 UPDATE
As we previously announced, the WordPress Foundation approved Myrtle Beach for hosting a WordCamp in 2020. What an honor!
This approval is a big win for Myrtle Beach. We can now show off what amazing things are happening in our region. We can clear the stigma some people associate with our town. Most importantly, we can have a fun time while empowering new friends with the skills needed to promote themselves using WordPress.
If there were ever an event that everyone living in the greater Grand Strand tech community should be excited about and rally behind, this is it. We are still looking for WordCamp volunteers, and we will soon be having WordCamp planning meetings.

This month's Meetup will be focused on help for WordPress beginners. If you are new to WordPress, please bring your questions or even post them here before the event so that we know what you'd like to learn.
Building a website can be intimidating and the web designer/developer world is full of people who struggle with imposter syndrome. You are not alone if you feel intimidated. The WordPress community is very welcoming and accepting of all people at all skill levels. Don't be shy!
For the regulars, think about what you wish you'd known when you were a beginner and bring your tips and advice. More important that that, though, just show up.
Sue Baily Weaver will be presenting and leading the discussion. We will start with talking about the differences between WordPress.com and self-hosted WordPress installations and go from there.
If you'd like help on a specific issue, be prepared to login to the site and we'll see if we can help.

PLEASE NOTICE NEW DATES!
We now meet officially on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 6 PM at Reno Collective. Our meetup will be held in Studio A - the large conference room towards the rear of the building.
The Reno WordPress Meetup usually starts with introductions, some news in the WordPress world and questions/comments about the previous month's topic.
Following the introductory session one of the meetup organizers or a guest speaker will present information on a topic for the month - which is usually determined by the questions and requests of the previous month's meetup attendees.
When you enter the Meetup you will be able to submit topics for the AMA (Ask Me Anything) session held after the short program presentation.
We will do our best to update this meetup information page to reflect the upcoming meetup topic.
WordPress is a very powerful Content Management System (CMS) that can be addressed at many levels. Some people just want to use it to accomplish their business or personal goals, some want to add/modify themes or add plugins to make their website more useful to them and others want to develop their own themes and plugins to customize WordPress to do exactly what they want or to be able to market their WordPress services to others.
The Reno WordPress Meetup is here to help you accomplish your goals but we can't give you the information you need if we don't know what you want. Tell us what you would like to learn and we will do our best to help you.

Hello WordPress Geeks!
Are you working on a project, your own or a client's, and you're having some challenges? Do you have an idea for your WordPress site and you don't even know where to begin to implement it? Well, this Meetup is for you! Bring your project and we'll look at your sticky parts or help you strategize how to move forward with your ideas.
Sometimes knowing where to begin is just too overwhelming. When you gain more clarity and focus on what you want to achieve, it's easier to look for options. Bring your big WordPress Dreams and let's see if we can help you find the first step to implementing them.
Squash the Bugs
Are you stuck? Something isn't working the way everyone else says it should. You've spent days and lost hair trying to figure it out. Maybe a few more pairs of eyes and extra brain power can help you. Bring you're buggy situations and let's see if we can fumigate your issue!
The Meetup is 2 hours long. Depending on number of participants and issues not everyone may get help for their specific issue. So, I will go in the order of RSVP's. Isn't that incentive for you to grab your spot now?

This is the second virtual Meetup of the WordPress Westchester Meetup.
Bring your questions and concerns!
We had a great turnout and a lively discussion for the first Meetup.
We discussed a number of issues including:
- We are looking for a space to meet in lower Westchester
- The meeting will either be on a Tuesday or Wednesday
- We have a long-term goal of hosting a WordCamp by November 2021
- There is a lot of interest in having a Helpdesk Meetup where people bring their laptops and get help with their WordPress issues
- If we cannot find an appropriate space to have a presentation by February 1st we will have a social Meetup where we can hangout together
The group hasn't met for quite a while and we don't have a meeting location yet. The intention of this event is to get to know each other and discuss the plans for 2020 including, the search for a meeting space, topics, speakers, etc.
In the spirit of WordPress we are putting together a core group to help with this Meetup group, the Facebook page and the physical Meetups. There are over 933 members in this Meetup group and we are expecting a huge turnout at our first physical meetings. In the past the members have been generous with their time and talents and we are looking to continue that tradition.
If you are a WordPress expert or novice, a graphic artist or coder, or just curious, a mere hour or two of your time will make a huge contribution to the community.
There's room for 25 people to participate. If there are ore then 25 people the rest will be listen only.

Creating your online presence can be a daunting task - just when you think you are ready, you find there is another step that you forgot. Then there are those "oops - I forgot" moments. Together we will create a plan that can be used to develop your online presence. As we work the list, we will also start creating a mind map* to help document your ideas.
*Mind Mapping: A mind map is a diagram for representing tasks, words, concepts, or items linked to and arranged around a central concept or subject. A mind map uses a non-linear graphical layout that allows the user to build an intuitive framework around a central concept. A mind map can turn long list of monotonous information into a colorful, memorable and highly organized diagram that works in line with your brain's natural way of doing things. -- "What Is a Mind Map" MindMapping.com
We meet in North Hampton at CoWerc in North Hampton. Pizza will be available starting at 6pm and we'll get rolling around 6:15 or so.

Come blog with us! We’ll be meeting again in the Starbucks café in Barnes and Noble at 6:30pm. Bring your computer, pen and paper, and all those great ideas you have rambling around in your head and join us for a another night of blogging!
Here's the plan. Grab a drink, hang out for a bit to chat, then split up and get to blogging. There are plenty of cozy spots around Barnes and Noble for you to work quietly on your blog. Brian will hang out in the cafe area in case you have any questions or have issues with your blog you'd like a little help with. Just before they close we'll get back together in the cafe and you can show off your latest literary masterpiece.
*Note: this is not a typical type of Meetup for our group. This is a "working" Meetup designed to give you an opportunity to get work done on your blog as well as do a little socializing. Please come ready to blog with an existing blog and a laptop/device.
*Another note: There aren't many outlets available besides a couple in the cafe, so make sure you have a full battery on your laptop or tablet!
Some new members of the Houston WordPress Meetup group when they join answer the question "What would you like to learn about WordPress?" with "everything". This meetup will be your first step in answering that question.
If you are new to WordPress the Houston WordPress Meetup group wants to help you get the most from using WordPress.
Rick Ankrum, the host of this Meetup, started using WordPress at version 1.5 and learned much over the years. Bring your questions and we will talk about them.
Some potential areas of discussion:
-- WordPress.com versus WordPress hosted version
-- Gutenberg blocks
Unlike the typical Houston WordPress Meetup you don't need to drive across Houston, find a parking place, or brave the Houston weather. This Meetup will be online using Google Hangouts. In order to participate in the Hangouts you will need a Gmail email address.
To keep the virtual meetup manageable and to answer questions in depth the RSVP list will be a maximum of 15 people. If you RSVP you will receive a private message to get your Gmail address to invite you to the Meetup. If you cannot attend please cancel your RSVP prior to the meetup so that another person may attend.
