To overcome this, I have developed a system where you can post your own events.
Its works like this:
- You click the "Submit Event" button below to bring up an "Event Submission" form.
- You fill in this form and submit it. Currently only your name and e-mail address of the fields are mandatory. No other fields are mandatory or are validated.
- The event is not automatically posted. I check it out to ensure that it is appropriate for my site. If it is not appropriate I will tell you.
Remember that my site if about "knowledge-related" subjects e.g. knowledge management, learning, creativity, innovation, personal development and the effective use of collaborative and knowledge sharing technologies such as social tools. If it does not fall broadly into one of these categories then I may decide not to post it.I may also make a few changes such as categorizing it so it automatically appears on the relevant pages of my site or toning down "marketing hype" in keeping with the style of my site :-) and then I post it to my site.
- You are automatically e-mailed to tell you the event has been posted or not.
This service is free but there is one thing that I would request in return and that is a reciprocal link to my site preferably with a logo though this is not a condition and if not appropriate - that's fine.
If you would like to advertise your event more formally via my website or in my monthly knowledge-letter then see here for more information.
