Hello there =)
Sorry I’ve been missing in action on these Google posts. I’ve been really working on my digital blog planning and trying to keep myself way from paper. I love paper…
Today’s Google Calendar lesson will be a quick one. We’re going to create 2 events today: one will be a single, one-time occurrence and the other a repeating event.
~Creating a One Time Event~
In my blog planning world, single events are great for one-off brain dump of ideas. It’s as simple as clicking on a date, entering an event name and choosing which calendar it should be on.
Don’t have multiple calendars? Make your additional Google calendars now!
Some examples of what I use single events for:
- Personal appointments – I keep all my doctor, dentist, fitness and hair appointments in my default calender (Life & Times)
- Webinars & Training Events – Check out emails you receive with invitations to these types of events. There may be an option to auto add it to your Google calendar.
- One off post planning – Inspiration hit you when your head hits the pillow? Grab your phone and toss in an event to your post planning calendar for the next day. Or next week =)
When would you use a single, occurrence event?
~Creating a Repeating Event~
I’ve been using repeating events to plan post series I (try) to routinely post, keep up on blog maintenance and to prompt me to post specific things on social media. I love using the repeating event feature because of the easy of updating the entire series if need be. More on that and how I use it soon =)
When I’m using repeating events:
- Blog post series
- Social media series – 100 Happy Days
- Blog maintenance
I hope this helped you use your Google calendar a little bit more and perhaps saved you some time. Stay tuned for more tips and tricks within Google calendar and how I keep my post planning and sharing under wraps.
