Tonight we passed the 1300 member mark on Meetup.com. I’m excited & thrilled that we’ve grown so much over the last few years. We’ve got a great community made up of amazing & passionate people and I love being a part of it. There are some neat stats in Meetup.com for our group that we’ll go through & note later. Right now I want to say “Thanks” to everyone.
The group wouldn’t be what it is without everyone’s involvement, so a big thanks to everyone who’s come out to the meetups, helped out at WordCamp, showed someone less-experienced how to do something, or offered up a nugget of knowledge they discovered to the group.
Big thanks to Nick, Sandi & Jackie, who really stepped up to help run the group. Along with them, we’ve seen Bill, Clark, Bobby, Bobbie, Sherry, Debra, V help out more, especially since we began our second monthly meetup.
Capital Factory, Build A Sign, and the team at WP Engine also deserve some great thanks. Jason, Shayda, Trafton, Austin and the whole team have always been ready to help. I don’t think I’ve heard them ever say they couldn’t do what it was that we needed. Y’all are simply great.
Raise a pint, give yourselves a hand, dance a jig. Way to go WP Austin!
