WordPress Tips & Networking

August’s Association of Bridal Consultants networking event was held at the Rosen Plaza Hotel. Guest speaker Heather Canada gave us a handout and presentation on using WordPress. Most of the stuff she spoke about if pretty generic and self explanatory but what I took away from the presentation was some pretty useful plugins.

To install any of these you can go through the plugin sidebar or search by name:
🔻Jetpack
🔻All in one SEO Pack or Headspace 2
🔻Login Lockdown
🔻WP-DB-BackupWordpress
🔻Editorial Calendar
🔻WP Touch
🔻Contact Form 7 (this one is great for if you have a lot of questions for people to fill out)
🔻Akismet

Lee Forrest provided the floral arrangements (love their work)

Next months event is September 26th and is all about presenting the best possible you! It is being held at the Alfond Inn in Winter Park. I really want to go but I’m planning a trip to Boston in which I would be leaving that day so it doesn’t look like I’ll be able to make it to that one. 😦

Luckily I will be able to attend my first ABC student organization meeting September 5th! I love ABC, their networking events are great and they are always so informative and beautifully put together. I am very excited that they have extended their association to include their first student organization at UCF Rosen!

What is your favorite wedding association or networking group?
