I really will do some schoolwork soon, but I've just worked out a better way to add the calendar to the site, so if you scroll to the bottom of the page, you will see it in all its multi-coloured, interactive glory. The red events are my brewing activities and the mustardy ones are real ale events from Aletalk's calendar. Click on one for more details.
I've also been putting some thought into the idea of 'monetising' this blog. I think that's Googlespeak for 'putting adverts on' and I would normally be dead against this sort of thing (and am currently 90% against it). All I was thinking was that if the income that could come from this monetising would be enough to put towards purchasing ingredients and equipment, that would be a good thing. I'd imagine, however, that one probably gets about a penny a month, which would make it ludicrously ineffectual. If you are reading this and have a Blogspot blog that you have monetised (or even if you don't), could you comment here with any thoughts you have on this please? That would be awesome!
