Google Calendar - Adding it to your Blog
Google Calendar can be added to your blog in a few different, but basically similar, ways. You would do the same as for any iFrame addition.
To learn more about Google Calendar, is the first place to start. Like with many Google Products, you have to be careful of accidentally publicising your personal details. Do some reading, please.
(iFrames can be fun. See Nitecruzr's post on making them < Here >. Make sure you click his links, too, you'll really see an iFrame in action!)
The code is found within the Calendar itself.
Step 1. is to click on the drop-down menu on the left, in My Calendar. Select Share this Calendar.
Step 2. is to make your Calendar 'Public'. < Select this option only if you want to make all of your calendar information (including event details) available to the world. If you make your calendar public and select Share only my free/busy information (Hide details), your event details won't appear in Google Web Search or Google Calendar search results. Only your free/busy information will be visible to others.
Step 3. is to click on the sub-tab heading, Calendar Details. It is on this page that you'll find the embed code for the iFrame for your Calendar.
