Takeaways from September 2018 Share Your WordPress Journey

For our September 2018 meetup, two members shared their WordPress journey:

  • How they first came to use WordPress
  • What they were doing before using WordPress
  • Aha! moments as they created WordPress websites

Thanks to Phil Salatrik and Colleen Sullivan Leh for sharing their experiences and stories about their WordPress journeys.

Their talks are a reminder to everyone working with WordPress that we all come from different places, whether it’s creating static websites, MySpace, logging, or starting a new business.

After the presentations, we enjoyed a good discussion about learning WordPress, dealing with spam, and setting up staging sites for WordPress sites.

Thanks to everyone who attended.
