Got a Blog? Like Beer? Have I got a deal for you!

I know it’s short notice, but today (yeah, TODAY!) You can hang out from 4-6 at the Lucky Lab (SE 9th and Hawthorne) for Beer and Blog which is completely Portlandy and a brilliant idea. Hang out at the Lab for a couple of hours and pick the brains of blogmasters for your own blog. Usually there is a focus on one particular subject for the evening and tonight it is WordPress for newbies. We’re going to discuss setup, themes, plugins to install, and general WordPress Best Practices. Tonight we get a Guest Host in the form of Adam Duvander. It is going to be awesome! How do I know? Well for one thing, I will be there! (: Also, there’s a chance that our own Dieselboi might attend as well. You can meet other bloggers, of course, and what’s not to like about the Lucky Lab on a sunny Friday afternoon? So if you’re getting ready to kick off your weekend and you think a beer might be the way to do it, come hang with us. Who knows? You might even learn something too? (If you do, don’t worry, I’m sure a few more from the bar will scrub it right back out of your brain…)

    Adam’s a great guy, and tonight he’s hosting, but the occasion is actually called Beer and Blog – http://www.beerandblog.com – and it’s a fairly regular thing. Tonight is a general blog help/work session; some of the gatherings focus on a specific topic (for example, last week we talked about using a dashboard view information aggregator such as Netvibes).

    Blogs. Beer. Bonus.

    Yes, bix, but you can’t share beer or collaborate with others blogs by yourself at home. ;)

    Sorry, I had a bad tag in my post. It looks a lot better now. Thanks for the catch Aaron.

    Dang, I didn’t see this until it was too late. I have been wanting to set up Word Press on my site for awhile now, too. Dang it!
