Eventbrite Now Available for All of WordPress.com

Promoting an event? WordPress.com says “Take our new Eventbrite features for a spin!”

And if you’re self-hosted, note this too:
WordPress.com Eventbrite announcement

The WordPress.com Blog

We’re excited to announce big updates to our Eventbrite integration: your events can now be displayed right on your WordPress.com site, no matter what theme you use!

Enjoy Eventbrite, regardless of theme

In 2013, we launched two Eventbrite themes to help you promote your events. Since then, we’ve gotten requests from users to extend that functionality more broadly on WordPress.com. Today, we’ve rolled out our Eventbrite integration to all users, which means you are no longer limited to only using the Eventbrite themes to promote your events. You can now connect to Eventbrite from any theme to highlight your events. (The existing Eventbrite themes will still be available.)

“The world moves too quickly now to rest on the knowledge we gained earlier in our lives,” Weiner said. He went on to say that in a knowledge-driven economy it’s all about the people. I agree with both his comments (click here), even though I only use LinkedIn and not Lynda.com – yet.

Apparently, in addition to what you’d assume you’d normally find on Lynda.com, the site also offers professional development such as courses by Deirdre Breakenridge, CEO of Pure Performance Communications. I didn’t know Lynda.com was founded in 1995, too. According to Wikipedia, Lynda.com’s online courses began in 2002. That’s quite a library of knowledge LinkedIn now has – And what a breathtaking social reach for Lynda.com!
