This week's upcoming events...

I will, of course, post a reminder for events the day before.

25 Wednesday ONE DAY EVENT: Animal Prints. Any ads that depict animal prints

27-30 Friday - Monday Weekend EventS: Picnic Related and BBQ. Any ad depicting a picnic and/or BBQ; items for a picnic and/or BBQ; etc


I just finished 200 scheduled posts to announce the upcoming week's events, and to post the day before an event starts (including our contest rule post) thru July 2017. I kept a tally cuz I wanted to know how many I ended up doing total. Announcement posts are scheduled for Noon, unless it's something starting on a Monday, then those are scheduled for 4:16, as 'this week's upcoming events' is schedule at noon on Sundays and I prefer to have announcements spaced out a little bit.

While doing that I discovered I had India on the calendar twice, so I of course switched one of them out. Be sure to peruse our event calendar thru July 2017 here. It's not written in stone and anything can changed, adjusted, etc at any time!

Remember these? They were good!

Weekend Event....Moon....

[Mod Note: I have created 103 scheduled posts so far for posts announcing the week's events, then posts for the day before event/s start, including of course contests. I'm up to January 4, 2017 and my right hand screamed STOP! So yeah, I'm giving it a break.]

I have FINALLY completed our Upcoming Events Master Calendar. Thru July 2017. It's here. Same link as before and can always be found in the sticky post on the top of Vintage Ads and on the left hand featured post widget.

Please let me know what you think, on this post would probably be more convenient in case I have to reference a lot of request for changes, etc. As I say, the calendar is NOT set in stone. I wrote down everyone's suggestions and I think included all of them. I did not really mention holidays as ads for them can always be posted, though I will post a prompt a week or so beforehand.

I cannot apologize enough to the community for being basically a 'bad mod' the past few weeks and not having this done. Life was tossing me lemons and I couldn't quite toss 'em all back! Did get some lemonade though :) I also had been devoting too much time trying to organize a convention and that was a nightmare, that someone else has to deal with now.

Tomorrow I'm gonna sit here and do scheduled posts for the weeks' events, scheduled posts for the day before our one day events, and of course scheduled posts with our rules the day before our contests start. That way they're all DONE. If you'd like to do a schedule post and don't know how, on the top of the master calendar is a link to the 'how to' I made and/or that link is also in the community's sticky post. Scheduled posts are fantastic!!

I feel so relieved I finally got this done. Now I devote more time here (is that a good or bad thing? ;)
