Google Calendar Tips ~ The 2nd Installment
I’ve partnered up with technology lifestyle expert Carley Knobloch, from Digitwirl, to bring you some fun yet informative videos on various products and services related to technology that will help you get organized and simplify your busy life.
Earlier this year, I shared a post about Google Calendar from Carley Knobloch. She has such a way of simplifying things for those of us that simply don’t have technical minds to make sense of it all. At least that’s how I feel. I don’t like to complicate my life any more than necessary which is why I am always late to the technological party. However I can certainly admit wholeheartedly that my iPhone has changed my life. Gosh I love that small little device. I still don’t however use Google Calendar. I know, I know. So many of you love it. BUT my problem is still the same. My kids don’t have cell phones (or cell phones that can access the google calendar anyway) and limited computer time so it creates a barrier for me and them to share the daily calendar. I love my BIG fridge family calendar. Even my seven year old checks it every single morning without fail as he gets out his bread to make toast. Little kids love to know what is happening every day. There is never any doubt about who has to be where when. So yes that is what stops me from embracing the online calendar but it certainly doesn’t stop Carley from trying to encourage me to give it a try. Here is her 2nd Google Calendar installment below. If you missed the first one you can check it out here.
How do you feel about calendars…online or traditional?
With two kids, a husband, a springer spaniel, and a little video show, managing it all can get a bit overwhelming. Thankfully, Google Calendar has stepped in and become command central for my life. I’ve talked about GCal in the past, but today I want to dig a little deeper and highlight some of the special features of this powerful calendar that help keep my family on track, and can help you wrangle your schedule too.
