Add Your Event

Please follow the instructions below to add your event to the Abq Jewish Event Calendar. Click here to learn how to publicize your event.

Abq Jew Blog @ AbqJew.net

1. Go to the top of the Calendar.

It can be the Abq Jewish Event Calendar, the New Mexico Jewish eLink Events Calendar, or the JFNM Community Calendar. It makes no difference - they will all take you to the same place.

2. Click the Submit Event button.

The Jewish New Mexico Submit Event form will be displayed.

3. Provide some basic information.

You'll be asked for some basic information about yourself and the event. Then it gets a bit more interesting.

4. Provide event  keywords and an image.

Keywords. Like, for a Google Search. That's exactly what you need to provide here, so people who are doing a Google Search (in the Calendar or on the Internet) can find your event. Things like sponsor, venue, artist - you know!

A picture is worth 1K words. You can provide either a "raw" image or a "finished" image (like the one at the top of this page). For our example, Abq Jew got the "raw" image by doing a screen capture at the Balloon Fiesta website. He then added text to produce the "finished" image.

A logo for the sponsor or event works even better. And a 600 pixel x 600 pixel square image works very well.

5. Provide the event  date and time.

If you are only sure of the dates, that's fine. If you know the start time but decline to predict when the event will be over, enter the start time as the end time.

6. Provide a description of the event.

The description can be as long and detailed as you want. Just keep in mind that readers want the important information as quickly as possible; so be reasonable. Website links are always valuable. Plus - you can do a lot of basic-but-nice formatting!

7. Provide an address for the event.

All you have to do is enter the name of the venue (i.e., Balloon Fiesta Park) as the Address and the city. Google Maps will, in most cases, do the rest.

8. Click the Check and Submit button.

The Check and  Submit page will be displayed.

9. Review the information you are about to submit.

If you want to go back and add / change / delete anything, click the Back to Editor button. If you are happy with what you've got, go ahead and click the Submit Event button.

You can always Contact Abq Jew with updated information. Or a better graphic. Or whatever.

Then What Happens?

Shortly after you submit your event, Abq Jew will get an email that  will direct him to the calendar's Submitted Event List, to approve / edit / reject your submitted event.

Whereupon Abq Jew does one or more of those things. Most often, Abq Jew will approve, or edit and approve. Since he tends to avoid confrontation, Abq Jew will almost never reject.

Your event is posted on the
Abq Jewish Event  Calendar as soon as
Abq Jew hits the Approve button.

If you don't see your event on the Abq Jewish Event Calendar a couple of days after you submit it, please contact Abq Jew. Sometimes things just get lost in the sauce.
