I’ve heard about Social Media Surgeries before, in fact anyone that visit’s Podnosh will have had some exposure to them. For a while I thought, can I offer anything? So tonight I went to the Acocks Green Surgery to see what it is all about, also went along to pass on the little knowledge of WordPress that I possess.
Seemed to start of quiet, a few people who podnosh and Trav28 had met before were present. Then the 2 ladies (bec and mandy? – I may have asked the names, but in the excitement forgot!) came in and asked about setting up a blog, Nick pointed them in my direction and I was happy to help out.
Hopefully I didn’t go too technical. My hope was to have a local installation of wordpress to demonstrate, which I had – but it didn’t seem to work in the pub. Worked fine at home though. Still managed to demonstrate how easy it was to setup and configure a blog using WordPress.com.
Time seemed to fly, and it was nice to get to speak to Nick a bit more than I have done in the past. Will look forward to the next meet up around the end of July. Hopefully it’ll be a little cooler then.
