3 Reasons Why Google is Currently Rockin' My Socks Off

Google is pretty much taking over the internet... and at the moment, I think I'm ok with that. Here's why...

Shared Calendars.
I am a planner. Loverboy is a planner. We love planning. And Google Calendars help us do just that! We have our own separate calendars that are shared with each other, plus a shared events calendar. So we can both see when we are each working or have individual plans AND we can put our shared events on there too. Plus both my parents have shared their calendars with me which makes making plans with them SUPER easy since I can just click on their calendars to see when they are free!

Shared Documents.
HOW DID ANYONE DO WEDDING PLAN BEFORE GOOGLE DRIVE??? I seriously cannot answer that question because I, for one, would be at a total loss without it. I love that you can have shared folders, shared documents, and then different permissions for each person shared with. So if I want my family to see the wedding day timeline, but not have the ability to edit it, I can do that! I think my favorite feature is the comment feature... people have the ability to comment, but not edit, which is just so snazzy... still get feedback without the original being changed. And wedding planning aside, I recently got a new mac that doesn't have Word on it... so I've been taking advantage of documents and having access to them anywhere. And don't even get me started on spreadsheets! Budgeting, anyone? From anywhere at any time? Yes please!

Cute Illustrations.
Unless you live under a rock you've probably seen the adorable Google Doodles they have for special days. Yesterday was just the best. It was John Venn's birthday... 'nuf said. Check it out here.

And as a bonus—Google is taking steps against porn... and that's about the most rockin' thing ever.

I would be approximately 122 times less productive (and entertained during my internet searches) if it weren't for Google. Kudos to you. I'm excited to see what you come up with next! Now if only Google+ was cool...

I was in no way paid or compensated to write this post... but hey, Google, if you wanna toss me some spare change I wouldn't mind! :)
