      20 Years! Cre8asiteforums 1998 - 2018   01/18/2018

      Cre8asiteforums In Its 20th Year In case you didn't know, Internet Marketing Ninjas released many of the online forums they had acquired, such as WebmasterWorld, SEOChat, several DevShed properties and these forums back to their founders. You will notice a new user interface for Cre8asiteforums, the software was upgraded, and it was moved to a new server.  Founder, Kim Krause Berg, who was retained as forums Admin when the forums were sold, is the hotel manager here, with the help of long-time member, "iamlost" as backup. Kim is shouldering the expenses of keeping the place going, so if you have any inclination towards making a donation or putting up a banner, she is most appreciative of your financial support.

Wordcamp In Fraser Valley

Recommended Posts

Last night I attended WordCamp in Fraser Valley here in B.C. It was chaired by Gary Jones, of BlueFur, one of the sponsors of the event. Kulpreet Singh, one of our members, was one of the speakers. He described a recent similar session where he spoke in a thread on Wordpress Camp Vancouver. If you are into blogging and get the chance to attend such as session, I would heartily recommend it. The speakers were excellent and the audience of about a hundred people was lively and knowledgeable.

 

Surprisingly the #1 finding for me was that Vancouver is one of the real hubs for Twitter. I always liked the simplicity of Twitter and had never bothered to read the instructions. There is much more to Twitter than meets the eye. If you are interested check out The Official Twitter Commands. Twitter has now acquired Summize and just look at the Search Operators that are available.

 

Twitter is often described as micro-blogging. Perhaps it is time for a TwitterCamp.

Hi Barry,

 

It was great to finally meet you! I enjoyed the event last night.

 

I think the TwitterCamp is a great idea.

 

I would like to work on organizing another WordPress event - but this time a multi-session event with different sessions for different audiences. For example, a session for newbies, one for bloggers, and one for developers - each session with a few speakers. If anybody would like to help out, please contact me at kulpreetsingh [at] shaw [dot] ca.

 

You can read more about the event last night here:
