In Search of …

I’m in search of a new calendaring system for my blog. Why? Because I don’t have the 4-6 hours/week it takes to maintain the current calendaring system. Basically, I have to enter everything in by hand. Since I started working a “real” job, this just hasn’t been feasible. And until the wine blog pays me more than pennies, the “real” job is a requirement.

Right now, this note is at the top of the calendar page:
NOTE: The Calendar has not been updated in the last 8 months due to time constraints. I’m now looking for an alternative calendaring system. Weekly (recurring) wine events are possibly still up to date, but no promises. If stores have moved or changed times in the last 8 months, it is not reflected in this calendar. For now, please take all calendar entries with a grain of salt and please double-check before you go anywhere.

As far as I can tell, no one reads the note. So please take it to heart right now; the calendar is out of date until I can find better, more self-sufficient technology. Call or check online at the retail location first before you head to a tasting.

Here is what I would love to find in a calendaring system (which is very similar to the proprietary system on Cincinnati.com):

  • The ability to stream it into my blog, in agenda format, perhaps via RSS or some other wonderful code invention (anything but an iFrame, which doesn’t often play nice with WordPress).
  • Clients could enter their own events into the calendar, saving me the hours it takes to format and organize it.
  • Event entries should be moderated, meaning I can still keep the Porn Superstars Dinner off my blog.

If you know of a lovely piece of technology like this, please let me know. In the meantime, remember the calendar is a loose, slightly out of date guide and you should always double-check with the retailer before you head out.
