Two WordPress Meetups in April 2018

Here’s what we did in April 2018:

  • WordPress Community Workshop – Gutenberg Special – Thurs. 12th April, 6:30pm at CitizenM’s Glasgow
    Gutenberg is the new WordPress editor, to be released sometime in April. It will mean a big change to the way we write posts and pages and, in a future release, it is expected to make page builders redundant. We aim to help you, as a WordPress user and content author, learn the ins and outs of the new editor before it comes out.
  • Find Content Ideas Relevant to Your Audience, by Ahmed Khalifa – Tues. 24th April, 6:00pm at iCafe Sauchiehall St.
    When it comes to creating content, the hard part is 1) coming up with ideas, and 2) it’s something that your audience is searching for and looking for on Google. And since the old boring clichĂ© of “content is king” is always around us, it feels like you are under pressure to do your content justice by maintaining its high-quality and consistency.
