How I use WordPress in my day-to-day business
Cecilia Svensson, Vaja

I left my profession as an IT-consultant to become a writer, lecturer and solopreneur. WordPress is one of my most valuable tools for my business. During my session I’ll happily share my experiences of growing a business, what my favorite tools and plugins are, and how to publish your own book.

You can watch the entire event in this handy playlist, which also includes an introduction speech by Ryan O’Leary.

WordPress + social media = ♥

We had great responses both on Twitter (30+ tweets) and in the Facebook groups WordPress-utveckling, WordPress Sverige and Advanced WordPress.

Over 50 people watched the live stream during the event and another 430 have seen it since it was completed. Over 1600 visitors have read blog posts related to this meetup on the Aftonbladet Tech blog.
