For as wonderful as it is to be so centrally located between two major cities, sometimes it's simply more fun, convenient and pleasant to do activities closer to home. Yet for as rich in opportunity as Howard County is, it can be challenging to know what's going on when ... and where.

That's why I've created TotallyHoco.com, an easy-to-use, robust community calendar for businesses, organizations, stores, congregations meetups, groups and more in Howard County, Md. And it's FREE for anyone to post events. Though it's certainly not free to run the site. In addition to the several hundred dollars per month in tool and technology costs, my personal time investment in this project to get the calendar launched, established and maintained is significant. Many hours. 

I want to keep the event posting service free, as I believe that is important to be as inclusive and supportive of all groups and activities as possible. And I'd like the support of the community -- people, organizations and businesses -- who find the calendar useful. Support comes in many forms, including posting events, sharing the calendar and telling others about it, and, frankly, financial support. 

Thank you in advance for your thoughtfulness, consideration and generosity!

Goals
$0 of $449 per month
The goal is to cover monthly costs -- hosting, calendar (and other) tools, and support services of $249/month -- plus to recover several thousand dollars of initial expenses. And, if things go grandly, perhaps even to make some money and cover my time.
