All About WordPress

All About WordPress

Many of us are past the question: To blog, or not to blog. We know there’s value in blogging.

Some of us have used WordPress, Moveable Type, TypePad or Blogger. Perhaps all of us already have a favorite blogging platform.

For our September Social Media Club of Salt Lake City meeting, we’re focusing on WordPress. We think it’s one of the more popular blogging tools. We have structured the program so there’s something for everyone regardless of your WordPress familiarity.

About WordPress

First of all, thank you to Joseph Scott — an Automatic employee and WordPress programmer who’s official title is bug exorcist — who has agreed to put together September’s program. You know you’ll learn valuable information when one of the software programmers is our lead presenter.

Networking will begin at 6 p.m. and our program at 6:30 p.m. Joseph will provide an introduction to WordPress, its history and where it is today.

WordPress Breakout Sessions – Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

Around 6:45 p.m. we’ll break-out into smaller sessions to focus on WordPress in more depth. The three breakout sessions will be geared toward WordPress beginners, intermediate and advanced users.

Thank you to two very talented bloggers in their own right, Thom Allen and Jake Spurlock, who will lead the beginner and intermediate breakout sessions, respectively. Joseph will lead the discussion in the advanced user group.

Jake’s session will also include an overview of BuddyPress, a comprehensive social networking tool which can be installed as a WordPress plugin.

Breakout concepts will include discussion items like:

  • Why you should use WordPress
  • How to most effectively install and customize WordPress
  • The best URL structure for search
  • SEO optimization of your WordPress blog
  • Plugins for WordPress
  • 10 steps to installing and setting up a customized WordPress blog

Breakout sessions will go until approximately 7:30 p.m. (or whenever we decide to quit).


Date: September 17, 2009

Time: 6 to 8 p.m.

Place: University of Utah Fine Arts Auditorium with breakout sessions in BEHS Building rooms 106 & 108 (BEHS Building is next door to the Fine Arts Auditorium)
