8Asians is committed to publicizing events that benefit both the Asian American and Asian Canadian community. In an effort to do this, while not making our editors rip their hair out, we started automating the events process so that an organization can add their event and have it automatically posted on this blog.
To add your event to 8Asians, you must add your event to the My 8Asians Events page, available on our social network. Your event will be moderated to make sure it’s relevant to the Asian-American and/or Asian-Canadian community, but once it is, your event will be added to our Recent Events module in the right column of the blog. (You can also join My 8Asians to say that you’re attending the event and organize meeting up before or after the event itself.) Your event will also automatically be posted to the 8Asians blog with a direct link to the events page on the social network two days before the starting event date.
While members of the 8Asians blogging stuff might blog about particular events they feel close to, posting your event to the social network will guarantee that it’ll be part of the blog module and get automatically posted to our blog. With all automated technology, there will be kinks to be worked out, and we appreciate your patience as we streamline our system to effectively give Asian American and Canadian organizations a place to publicize events relevant to our community. Got any questions? Let us know.
