Get Website Help in the Happiness Bar

It’s the week of WordCamp Birmingham! Saturday will be here before you know it. There are still some General Admission tickets left, if you’d like to get one of those or we’ll see you at the door.

We wanted to take a moment and mention one of the coolest features of WordCamp – the Happiness Bar.

2016_WordCamp_poster_previewThe Happiness Bar is a live help desk, where WordPress pros sit, wait, twiddle their thumbs, eat snacks just waiting for attendees to ask them a question. These helpers are often WordCamp speakers, organizers or volunteers, a wonderful group of WordPress professionals waiting around to help – YOU!

Looking for help or advice with a certain WordPress problem?
Need recommendations for plugins or themes? Having trouble configuring your theme? Got a weird shopping cart or sidebar issue you just can’t figure out?
Bring your questions a to the Happiness Bar and one of WordCamp Birmingham’s friendly volunteers will help you sort out the issue.

So stop by the Happiness Bar at this year’s WordCamp, get some tech support for your site and experience what the WordCamp community is all about.

#wcbhm – the official WordCamp Birmingham 2016 hashtag

The WordPress community is one of the “cool things” about the internet. There are so many interesting, smart and helpful people out there just wanting to connect and help each other do their best with WordPress. All of this fun culminates each year during WordCamps. Which is why we’re so excited about the WordCamp Birmingham on October 29, 2016.

But you don’t have to wait to join the conversations! There are plenty of people on all the social channels talking about WordPress and WordCamp in particular. Here are the top three hashtags to follow:

#wcbhm is the hashtag to follow for all WordCamp Birmingham related conversations.
#wpyall is another good one that gets used all year for WordPress news in and around Birmingham, AL
#wordpress is the tag that everyone uses when they’re talking WordPress

We’re watching #wcbhm and you should too. This will pull in all WordCamp-specific posts and content for you as we count down the days to WordCamp Birmingham 2016.

There are probably tons of other WordPress hashtags worth following. What are they? We don’t want to miss out! Leave them in the comments, if you would, so we can join in the fun.
