Loads of people have been telling me for ages how elegant and versatile WordPress is, but despite the best intentions I haven't gotten too far in exploring it - I'm one of those people stubbornly hanging on to Blogger because they know it well and have three years' worth of blog posts invested in it.
If you're one of the enlightened, you'll want to know about the brand-new Manchester WordPress User Group. Its first ever meeting is on Wednesday January 16 2008, from 5.30pm to around 7.30pm at MDDA’s offices.
They say: "Are you a blogger, designer or developer who uses the WordPress blogging platform? If so, why not come along to the first meeting of the Manchester WordPress User Group.The meeting will feature two talks – one on designing for WordPress and the other on security tips. The rest of the evening will be given over to ‘show and tell’ knowledge sharing and networking." Free, refreshments included. Full details here.
