1. Once you have the plugin installed and are logged in to your dashboard, you will see a link on the left side of your dashboard (with the other menu items) that says "Events").
2. Click "Events," then click "Add New".
3. Once you are here, there are a number of details you can fill out for the event, including cost, location details, etc. Once you have everything filled out, if you want to preview the event details, click "Preview" at the top right. Otherwise, click "Publish".
4. If you don't yet have an events tab on your menu, you can always go there by entering "events" at the end of your SMARTblog URL. So for example, it would look like this: http://yoursiteaddress.com/events
