Meeting Yourself Coming and Going
Do you have a goal to be more organized in 2013? I have days when I can’t remember what’s scheduled for the next unless I look at my calendar. I use Google Calendar. This calendar allows me to enter my events online and sync with the devices that I carry around daily.
My Google Calendar is color coded and I can even print it. I don’t print very often, but I’d have it if I needed a written record. You’ll see three colors on my calendar that represent blog events, writing events, and out of office/work events.
On my calendar, the red event is for my blog. I created a calendar to show only those events where I could use that view as a page on my website. If an author wants to be my guest, I direct that person to the calendar to choose a date that is not taken. Viewers of my blog calendar can only see the red events. It’s actually a separate calendar. What you are looking at in my February screenshot is a merging of three calendars. You can even share individual calendars with friends.
You can set up reminders that will pop up at the appropriate time and date. You can also enter details with the event. For instance, if I click on a work event in green, I may see driving directions and phone numbers that I’ve entered in the event.
There’s a great tutorial on Youtube if you’d like to set up your own Google Calendar. HOW TO USE GOOGLE CALENDAR TO MAKE YOUR LIFE EASIER
