So…the Pandemic (ominous music)…it changed all our lives. One of the things that suffered multiple blows is the social media platform Meetup. Created in 2002, it’s an online place that hosts activities, gatherings and events for people who seek to connect with like-minded individuals and communities who share interests. From hiking to hot yoga to hip hop…there’s a Meetup group for everybody. And you can search by your area and see what’s going on.

Now…PRIOR to COVID, many if not most of these groups met in-person. Perhaps a sunset hike at a scenic location or a singles mixer at a cool place to enjoy a tantalizing selection of cocktail drinks and appetizers. Regardless, we met in person. Pandemic changed all that. It thrust the online video communication platform Zoom into prominence…where it seems to remain.

I Become Organizer of WordPress Web Help

How did I get involved with this group? I actually joined in 2014 and yet wasn’t active until I decided to reengage with the world after a troubling few years locked down and generally avoiding in-person contact. After all, person-to-person networking was a crucial part of my client-generating activities. In late 2022, I logged into Meetup.com for the first time in a loooong time and was greeted by a banner from Meetup informing me that this group was destined to be taken down due to it not having an active organizer.

I looked at the numbers…887 members. It struck me as tragic that all those WordPress-interested folk were going to lose this group which was/is dedicated to offering a place where people needing WordPress help could connect with people who have WordPress expertise. So I took on the mantle (and expense) of leadership in our group. It’s been a lot of fun and I’ve made some great connections with nice folk. Yes, of course, as a WordPress pro, this group allows me to offer my help to a wider audience of possible clients, but when we’re marketing our business, we must try to maintain an attitude of abundance rather than scarity. See other people who do what you do as possible allies, rather than competitors. Friendly competition can lead to beautiful friendships and that has been the case for me.
