Post Title
Add brief, descriptive title in the title field. For upcoming events, add the date in the title field.

Contact Information

For Labels (subject headings), click "Show All", to the right of the label box. Click on relevant labels to add. Please use existing subject headings, selecting only those which are related to the main subject of the post. This way, everyone searching for a posts on a particular topics can click on a term and be brought to a similar post. E.g., for a flamenco dress for sale, you might use: For Sale and Costumes.

Proposed Events Vs. Planned Events
