The Auburn WordPress Meetup Group is for any WordPress user – new or experienced – who wants to learn more about WordPress, network with other users and developers, and discuss all things WordPress.

The meetup will be a video conference due to the "stay home, safe healthy" order. Since this is the first virtual meeting, we will see how the meeting goes especially the help desk aspect. We will be using a technology called Zoom for the meeting. The meeting will start with everyone joining the video conference using video and audio on your computer or smartphone. If you aren't actively speaking, please mute your microphone.

The first part of the meeting will be a round-table discussion of WordPress. We will then try to move into a help desk collaboration that may either be everyone or breaking into smaller groups.

Thanks in advance for everyone's participation and patience as we adjust to the community changes.

We’ll discuss the successes and challenges of running a small business, share stories, ask questions, share tools & resources, brainstorm ideas and generally create community for those of us who typically work in isolation.

We meet on the first Thursday of each month from 10-noon at the Wallingford Good Shepherd Center, Room 221. It’s not far from the freeway and has free parking.

PS – Please note that this Meetup is specifically for those with a freelance business that relies on WordPress and not intended for those who have their business website made in WordPress. There are many other Meetups for WordPress users.

Are you a blogger and/or DIY (do-it-yourselfers) looking to connect with others who are interested in building WordPress websites and blogs? Then this group may be for you!

We meet once a month to discuss what we're working on, help each other on any problems we're having, and share tips on steps that can make life easier.

This group is primarily bloggers with some experience with WordPress and blogging. If you are BRAND NEW to WordPress, we'd love to see you. We also recommend attending the WordPress Fundamentals MeetUp (meets on the third Saturday of most months), which will introduce you to this great platform and get you started on your path to blogging/website management.

The DIY User Group meets on the last Saturday of each month. We hope you can join us and will spread the word. There's plenty of free parking at the Wallingford Senior Center.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

It says that the Senior is Closed, will you still have the meetup?
Yep! I have a key and will be there setting up when you arrive. Please note that there is only one host for this meetup, so if I'm sick, I will send an email through MeetUp.com if I have to cancel.

I can't find the space!!!
We're in the lower level and the entrance is north of the parking lot. There will be signs.

Do I have to bring a computer?
Only if you want to show examples to the group to help facilitate the discussion or better explain an issue you're having.

The map shows downtown Seattle, where is the location?
Please join us at the Wallingford Senior Center, 4649 Sunnyside Ave N, #140 (lowest level), Seattle, WA. To make sure you end up at the right location, put "Wallingford Senior Center" in your search browser and Google Maps will direct you to the right place. Folks have been hit or miss when trying to navigate with the 4649 address.

I'm brand new to WordPress, is this the right MeetUp for me?
If you are new to WordPress, check out the WordPress Fundamentals Meetup. This is a great place to get an introduction to WordPress. Of course, we'd love to have you too.

Is this MeetUp only for Bloggers?
Nope! If you are a professional creating sites for clients, we'd love to have you join us to share your expertise and advice. Also, please be sure to join our Freelancer Meetup on the first Thursday of each month 10-12 AM.

Meets the 3rd Tuesday of every month, and is intended for a wide audience: from new WordPress users to experienced bloggers, cutting edge designers, or advanced developers; all are welcome.

The Seattle WordPress Meetup is a free, non-judgemental place for people of any skill level, interest, or background to come and learn, share, and participate in our amazing WordPress community.

—— More About the Help Desk Meetup ——

Not Just Technical Help!

Our community is full of members with a broad range of expertise from building sites, to front and back-end development, hosting, strategy, UX and design, SEO and analytics, social networking, to project and business management.

Bring your non-technical questions and expertise, too!

Come Help Others!

If you don't need help, please come anyway! We want to add your voice, skills, and experience to the conversation. Besides, we just like your company! :)

Have fun sharing your thoughts, debating with your peers, and yes, marketing yourself and making friends as you help others over their hurdles.

Remember: if you've been doing WordPress for 2 days, you can help the person who's been doing it for 1 day.

We meet in the Smart Buildings Center Training Space located on the 1st floor of the historic Pacific Tower building on Beacon Hill. Go to the south entrance of the Pacific Tower, straight up a few stairs and past the elevators, and we'll be on your left in a big room with a projector, and lots of tables and chairs. ADA access is available via the north entrance, take the elevator up to the 1st floor.

February's topic is starting a business - scoping and contracts.

Do you make your living using WordPress to create websites for other people’s businesses? This new Meetup is for you! We are not about themes or plugins, rather we'll talk about aspects of having a freelance business based in WP. We’ll discuss the successes and challenges of running a small business, share stories, ask questions, share tools & resources, brainstorm ideas and generally create community for those of us who typically work in isolation.

We meet on the first Thursday of each month from 10-noon at the Wallingford Good Shepherd Center, Room 221. It’s not far from the freeway and has free parking.

PS – Please note that this Meetup is specifically for those with a freelance business that relies on WordPress and not intended for those who have their business website made in WordPress. There are many other Meetups for WordPress users.

Use this link to join the Seattle WP Slack Group (https://wpseattleslack.wordpress.com/) and then you can interact with the group in the Business Channel. We post all our Freelancer minutes on our website at: https://wpseattle.org/category/freelancers-meetup/

February's topic is starting a business - scoping and contracts.

Do you make your living using WordPress to create websites for other people’s businesses? This new Meetup is for you! We are not about themes or plugins, rather we'll talk about aspects of having a freelance business based in WP. We’ll discuss the successes and challenges of running a small business, share stories, ask questions, share tools & resources, brainstorm ideas and generally create community for those of us who typically work in isolation.

We meet on the first Thursday of each month from 10-noon at the Wallingford Good Shepherd Center, Room 221. It’s not far from the freeway and has free parking.

PS – Please note that this Meetup is specifically for those with a freelance business that relies on WordPress and not intended for those who have their business website made in WordPress. There are many other Meetups for WordPress users.

Not Just Technical Help!

Our community is full of members with a broad range of expertise from building sites, to front and back-end development, hosting, strategy, UX and design, SEO and analytics, social networking, to project and business management.

Bring your non-technical questions and expertise, too!

Come Help Others!

If you don't need help, please come anyway! We want to add your voice, skills, and experience to the conversation. Besides, we just like your company! :)

Have fun sharing your thoughts, debating with your peers, and yes, marketing yourself and making friends as you help others over their hurdles.

Remember: if you've been doing WordPress for 2 days, you can help the person who's been doing it for 1 day.
