I launched this as a support site for a local WordPress user meetup group in Ferndale, MI in 2009. Over 3.5 years and 34 meetups (and 3 successful WordCamps!) later, the group is going strong thanks to current organizers.
The group has outgrown its name, and the name has been changed to Metro Detroit WordPress Meetup group. To match that, the URL of this site is now changed to metrodetroitwp.wordpress.com with the site title change.
I want to thank Deborah, TJ, Anthony, and Debra for running the community and growing it so much after my leaving of the area in 2011. You guys are awesome!
Now, you can expect some news updates and more change on this site. Meanwhile,
- sign up for the email updates of this blog (on the sidebar)
- follow @metrodetroitwp on Twitter
- join the Facebook group
And of course, make sure to join the meetup group’s next event!
Although I’ve moved quite far (Tokyo, Japan), I am looking forward to joining the local meetup or WordCamp someday in the future.
