Michelle Frechette with the Community Minute!
Community Minute transcript
Hey WordPressers! It's Michelle Frechette with a WP-Minute about community! This week I tried to return to in-person events for my local WordPress meetup. People had been asking, nay, begging, to get back in person. Well, I had to cancel it. Turns out all that begging was premature. Not many (dare I say most, actually?) are ready to return to in-person meetups. But at the same time, our online meetup has been getting smaller and smaller attendance. So I ask you - what should your local meetup do to re-engage people in an almost (please I hope) post-pandemic world? We need to change things up. If your local meetup is dragging. If you need to add some flavor. If you're not sure where your next topic and speaker are coming from…let me know. I'm building a list of topics and people and I'm happy to share them out. Let's get back on track - sharing best practices, learning new skills, and helping one another grow. Find me on Twitter @michelleames, or email me at email@example.com. Hopefully coming soon to a meetup near you!
This week we welcome two new members to the #linksquad crew: Jonathan Wold and Juan Hernando!
You can meet them in the Slack group and if you’re not a member yet, go to buymeacoffee.com/mattreport to join.
