What, besides music, do these two events have in common? They should both totally be publicized on Totally HoCo, Howard County's newest (and dare I say, coolest) calendar of HoCo Happenings. Created by Jessie Newburn, who founded HoCoBlogs with Robin Abello, Totally HoCo is a free and easy to use way to publicize local events. They also accept sponsorships from local businesses to support the venture.
There's a lovely piece about Jessie in this month's Howard Magazine. "It started with an idea to transform the way a community connects," begins the article. Since making connections is the whole point of my blog, I'm a big fan of ways that help people do that.
Speaking of blogs, there's a rumor that some local bloggers may be making an appearance as panelists at this month's meeting of the Western Howard County and Ellicott City Democratic Club. I'd tell you more, but they don't appear to have registered the event at Totally HoCo. If you're a member, perhaps you can fill us in with the details.
I think the topic has something to do with the role blogs can play in local elections.
Update: I found more info on tomorrow night's event on Scott Ewart's blog.
