Sharpen your Calendar Skills

This post will share how you can VERY SIMPLY copy and paste ONE code to access the Seattle Announcements Calendar from your own pc, your cell phone, any web browser at any time, as an addition to your own gmail or google calendar or via your RSS feed.  You will have access to a variety of over 700 either free, low cost, no cover, volunteer experiences to events and venues that offer exciting experiences that will only be made better by your participation.  WooHOO!!

I want to encourage you to utilize the Seattle Announcements Calendar. I am hoping that one of the events on the Seattle Announcements Calendar will entice you to leave your home and get out and about.   Maybe you don't feel you need to go out once you get home as it feels pretty darn good to relax after a long day working for the boss.

Think of this...perhaps there is someone else in the community that could benefit from seeing you on occasion.  I think of you all as gifts and I know that many of you feel the same way when you see a friend that you don't get to visit with as often any more.  I know that one of the things I treasure the most is my relationships with others.  I want you all to value your own worth to those around you.

If you are not looking at the calendar on a regular basis, you are missing out on some fabulous events and wonderful FUN FREE things that occur in our greater community.  I am committed to resourcing many free, low cost, by donation and volunteer opportunities for us to peruse.

What do knives have to do with the GayZette?   PLENTY!  For example, until the end of the month you can take 2 knives a day to your local Sur la Table and they will sharpen them for you for free.  Maybe you want to take a free meditation class on Mondays? Or you have always wanted to learn ASL (FREE on Tuesdays).  There is so much going on that I would be emailing you constantly to fill you in.   If you are out of work there are several resources available for support or classes and I am adding more things over the next 2 weeks so keep checking back.

I have made it as EASY as possible for you to have access to the calendar via a HTML link.  If you need a ICAL or XML link, email me and I will send it to you.  I want you to use it, enjoy it and send me any feedback. 

You can access the calendar in the following ways: (do copy and paste the links)

click on the icon and you can add it to your own calendars.  You will have to sign into your gmail/google account if you are not signed in.  You can select the Seattle Announcements Calendar to view it, and de-select it when finished viewing it.
  • You can save the calendar and view it in your RSS feed (I have to research this one. As with many things I am self taught and pass it onto you once I figure it out but you may already know). 

From the heart,
