35 Day Challenge:

Are you looking to gain some impetus for your WordPress project?  Why not join our challenge taking place between the January and February Meetups?

If there is something specific that you want to focus on achieving or you just want to take the action you keep saying you will, or you want push through a block that’s been holding your project up, or perhaps identify 3 simple things that if you complete will push your project forward significantly, this is the challenge for you:

  • Decide by the January Meetup what you want to achieve in 35 days
  • Declare what that is in MWUG’s Google group HERE
  • Ask for the help or advice you need and offer it where you can
  • Attend the January Meetup to get more support
  • Work on your project challenge for 35 days
  • Update the group with your progress!
  • Finally, attend the February Meetup to celebrate your progress.


Anyone with any experience of WordPress is welcome, whether you’ve heard about it and want to know more, you’re an experienced WordPress user or developer, or anything in between; you are welcome to our meetings.

If you fancy coming along, let us know at our Meetup page.


MWUG is run by Mike Little (http://zed1.com), co-founder of WordPress, so come along to discover how WordPress can benefit you or your organisation, and get specific advice on any WordPress questions you have.
