Goggle calendar

So what is a google calendar?

Wikipedia has this to say about Google Calendars:

"Google Calendar
is a free time-management web application offered by Google. It became available on April 13, 2006 and is currently in beta stages. While users are not required to have a Gmail account, they are required to have a free Google Account in order to use the software.

Google Calendar allows multiple calendars to be created and shown in the same view. They can also be easily shared, either read-only or with full control, and either with specified people only or with everyone. For example, make one shared calendar for each sports team or club, and a separate calendar for private events. Events from both show up side-by-side on the same calendar, in different colors."

That sounds handy! Here are the steps to set up your own Google calendar.

  1. Log into Google.
  2. Click the blue link on your google page to Calendar (up at the top).
  3. Enter a few events to your calendar.
  4. In the left navigation area under My Calendars, click the drop-down menu that is next to your name and then change the colour.
  5. Click the same drop-down menu and select Calendar Settings. Change the name, NZ timezone etc. Don't copy the embed code yet. Instead click the link that says Customise colour, size and other options.
  6. Adjust settings to a width of 400 pixels (not 800 so that it fits in your blog) and other settings to your liking.
  7. Copy the embed code and paste as a new post in your blog.
