Changes Coming to WordPress Workshop

changes coming to wordpress workshop, blogsitestudio.comComing in 2013, WordPress Workshop is making big changes!

But first, I must thank all the bloggers who have attended WordPress Workshop over the past year.

I have found it infinitely gratifying to share my knowledge about WordPress and know I have helped you on your journey of exploration. Nothing gets me more fired up than teaching WordPress and nothing teaches me more than staying two steps ahead of my bloggers.

So, thank you, dear WordPress Workshop bloggers!

After a year of training bloggers in the use of WordPress – conveniently facilitated through Meetup.com – I’ve learned a few things about how to better organize the WordPress Workshops.

Changes coming to WordPress Workshop

Focus

A specific topic will be covered each week so bloggers can sign up for what they want to learn.

1st Tuesday: Getting Started
2nd Tuesday: Plugins and Widgets
3rd Tuesday: Search Engine Optimization
4th Tuesday: Social Media and Feeds.

Those will be the first four topics with more to come. But, we’ll still leave time to discuss individual issues with WordPress.

Waiting List Overflow Workshops

When more than one person is on the Tuesday waiting list, I’ll add a Wednesday workshop with the same focus. This way, bloggers don’t have to wait a month to cover a specific topic.

These are just two more ways WordPress Workshop is personalizing the WordPress learning experience. I’m always open to suggestion.

Workshop Details

WordPress Workshop Meetup page, blogsitestudio.comWordPress Workshops always start at 7 pm on Tuesdays. (Or Wednesdays for Overflow.)

The fee is $20 per person for a maximum of 3 bloggers per workshop.

You MUST reserve your space at Meetup.com/WordPress-Workshop. Providing advance information about your theme, plugins, experience level, etc helps me a lot.

A laptop computer is required, but can be provided if necessary.

No WordPress.org account? I can help you set up a hosting service in advance at no charge.

I also offer private consultations at Blenz for $40 per hour at your convenience.

Required Reading: BlogsiteStudio.com. While there, sign up for a free subscription.

Read WordPress.com or WordPress.org: Which Way to Blog, to understand the differences between the WordPresses.

As always, please leave comments here about how I may improve the WordPress Workshop. Your input is vital to the growth of this group.

Thanks and see you at WordPress Workshop!

    I think the new format sounds great. That way everyone is working on a simular topic of WordPress. I will probably come back in the new year or if you have one after December 16th, as I will be out of town. I’ve having a bit of trouble with a widget. For the SEO will you be going through the SEO built into wordpress? I attended a Meet up about it but would love it if I could implement it with someone who knows it is stand by.

    Thanks Teddy. Yes, the change has been a long time coming.
    For SEO I’ll mostly talk about the Yoast SEO plugin but am open to others.
    What widget is not behaving for you?
    The other thing I want to encourage is for people to ask questions on my discussion forum at Meetup.com.
    Looking forward to seeing you!
