Hey, Divi Fam! 🎆🏖️🎇

June just left the building, and summer is going by fast! With all the traveling that usually happens, I’m surprised work doesn’t slow down. 😅 Nope. Here at ET we’re (I’m) attending WordCamps, facilitating Divi meetups, and the whole team is working hard on Divi 5.0. (have you seen the latest update?).
It’s all good, though. When you do what you love, it hardly feels like work, know what I mean?
How do you balance Summer and work? Comment below! 🙏🏼

Let’s see how our current Divi meetups hosted their June events.

WordCamp Europe 2023

WordCamp Europe was held in Athens, Greece this month! I attended and represented Elegant Themes and had such a blast! At the last minute, I was pulled in to volunteer. 😅 I got to interview WordPressers throughout the day on Friday AND I had the pleasure of emceeing on Saturday morning. 🙌🏼 I had a fantastic time and was in my element, truly.

My travels brought me to Spain after Greece, and I had the pleasure of visiting Celine and the Divi Valencia Meetup! What a sweet time to visit with our community. It truly brought warmth to my heart. The bonus was that I got to practice my Spanish. 😅

Divi Chicago June 2023

From the Hosts, Joan Margau & Scott Winterroth:

Attendees: 6

Divi-Chicago Meetup was a round table discussion on what’s happening in everyone’s daily use of Divi. Building websites, combining layouts, revising content. With all the work we’re doing in Divi we’re still experiencing repetitive styling and not using all of the features available. We’re going back to the basics of Divi; it’s the tool of our trade.

We love your tenacity, Divi Chi-Town! 💥

Open Discussion to grow the Divi Delhi NCR community, This was the topic for our June meetup and this was not a successful meetup only 3 people were their, including me so I don’t think that it was a good meetup. But yeah I discuss a bit how we will grow this community more. Looking to conduct a great meetup next month.

It’s successful in our eyes! 😍 Don’t be discouraged. 💯

From the Host, Julius Lopez:

Attendees: 5

Hello from Divi Los Angeles Meetup. We had two Meetups this month continuing the theme of Divi Basics. The early June Meetup is the one we walked through the Divi ‘Visual Builder.’ This was a tour of the Visual Builder from both within the WordPress Editor and editing directly with the Front End Visual Editor. We covered how to bounce between the WordPress Editor and the Visual Editor and why you may need to work in both.

The later June Meetup is the one where we began a tour of ‘Sections, Rows, and Modules’ – the key elements of Divi. This included sharing how they work, ways you may want to use them, and how to mix-and-match modules from various pre-built Divi Layouts. We then started a review of each Divi Module starting with the Accordion and working our way to the Video Slider. However, due to time constraints, we only got to the “C’s” with the “Countdown Timer”.

Our next two Meetups will have us going over the remaining Divi Modules with the early July Meetup covering the “Divider” to “Photo Carousel” modules, and the late July Meetup covering “Post Navigation” to the “Video Slider”.

Come and learn with us. Checkout our Meetup page for dates and times!

I love what you’re doing with the LA group, Julius! ♥️

In June, we covered two Top 10 Tips Lists – one for starting your own web design business, and one for becoming a web design freelancer/independent contractor. This was a fantastic, informative discussion, intended to help newbies to WordPress and Divi get started on the right track in their careers. We covered several sub-topics from how to define one’s scope of services, to business licenses, to tracking expenses for tax purposes.

You two always come with it with content! 💯
