  • Talk about title – how it changed my outlook.
  • Talk about how it works… technical details… and front end details. Introduce you to some good plugins and places to get more help Title – “It’s a whole new web world”
  • Background… started using in 2004 – WYSIWYG – Mostly for personal and family blogs… Got into Wordpress Multisite back when it was WordPress MU in 2009 and set up my first two networks (UNC and one for my family blogs). My mind just blew when I saw this. There are so many possibilities.
  • Each new site you have to set these up too…
  • (Caching and other stuff here)
  • Share User base. Doesn’t work well with single sites that need to have their own set of users that log in and do stuff. Or rather it is harder. Updates potentially break LOTS of sites. Backups are hugeSecurity Vulnerabilities are more dangerous
