Panel Discussions

We are aiming for 3 main panel discussions where we will be able to utilize some local experts in a very casual discussion format. The topics we are currently considering are:

  1. Tech & Design – From WordPress.com to WordPress.org, what are the technical pros and cons, the common pitfalls, and some tips and tricks of the trade
  2. Content is King – Overused yes, but still too true to ignore. What are the keys to developing dynamic content for your blog
  3. Traffic Solutions – Ok, so you have a blog up and running, you think you have good content, how do you bring it to the people?

    I don’t have a name in mind, but I’m particularly interested in the topic of using WordPress as a content management system.

    Thanks for putting this together! Let me know if I can help in any other way.
