Another reason why my son isn't listening to me

My son and I have a deal to help him get through his school morning routine: If my little bear completes his tasks early (dressed, teeth and hair brushed) then he is allowed to play on his iPad. This gives me enough time to make his lunch and do my hair and make-up.…

Listen, Connect, and then Post

Last weekend’s blizzard was a time of Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and self-reflection. Social media provides us with beautiful pictures, exercise demonstrations, inspirational sayings to motivate us to get our sweat on in our baddest, beast mode each and every day.

This weekend I  enjoyed posting away while…

Put your phone down and parent

My son is sitting on my lap as I write this post. He is watching the way my fingers move across the keyboard and he is reading the words as I type them.



I try very hard to not use my phone too much in front of my son. Yes, it is very rewarding when it is my turn in a game, or I get a text message from a friend. But, he is my son, and he is much more rewarding…

Teens spend more time on media than sleeping

I work nine hours a day. From around 8:30 until 5:30 (if I am paying attention to the alert that tells me to leave), I am answering emails, rescheduling projects, attending meetings, straightening out issues over the phone and reading more emails through lunch. Nine hours.…

{Facebook Busness Page Benefits}

I know alot of folks ask why should I have a business page versus a personal profile but there are some benefits.

Facebook business page benefits:

1) When posting to your business page you can choose to post as yourself or as your business page. Make sure you are posting as your business page. After you post you can comment or like your post as yourself by changing the "liking and commenting" option to yourself. This will make the post visible in your newsfeed for your…

How many selfies could you take in one day?

When my son was born, my Mom asked me to take a picture of him every day. So I did. (Thanks, Mom!) Obviously, I took more than one picture of him most days, but I can say that I have a record of my son every day of the first year of his life - that's 365 photos of his daily changes from being a day old to being a year old.…

MJ didn't get it either...What the heck is a meme?

Who you trying to school, fool?

That should have been Michael Jordan's response to the kid who tried to make MJ look like a fool.

Yes, even the great MJ got hit with the latest viral internet tsunami.

Memes.

I can hear you now, how the heck do…

Dear Facebook friends: Is blue poop normal?

There is a moment in most modern parents' lives, when you will find that your parenting instincts fail you. It's not a happy moment and you certainly aren't ready for it, but there it is.…

1000 photos in five years

How many photos do you have from your childhood? I am lucky - I had two parents who weren't afraid to break out the camera for holidays, vacations or even everyday events and didn't let the price of processing film scare them off. (Thanks, Mom and Dad!)…

Pitch Perfect: Write a Product Review that Sings!

Product reviews can increase your blog’s search engine rankings, make you more visible and appealing to brands and you can score some cool loot along the way. However, getting a brand to select you to review their products is no one-two punch—it’s actually a lot of work.

From grooming your blog to creating the perfect pitch letter, follow…

Put A Little Sex In The Headline

Okay, it may not always work as planned, depending on your audience. But I can tell you it will make your headline click-worthy. It doesn't have to be graphic either, by the way. Just suggestive. =)

PR is EXPENSIVE so anything you can do on your own to generate buzz will reduce your burn rate. You can pitch editors yourself but if you don't have a hook, they don't have a story. The surest way to get a response is to give them the whole setup. If you can't hook an editor, you won't…

Time To Bust Outta That Box!!!

You're a startup entrepreneur. By nature, that makes you an idea generator. It also probably means you're operating on a shoestring budget.

So you have to wear multiple hats - innovator, marketer, developer, designer - and figure out how to get your offerings to market in an expedient and cost-efficient way. Not an easy task...but you've got the tools in your arsenal. =)

For those of you without huge marketing and advertising budgets, it's frustrating to get your voice heard. I…

Before you upload that picture...

Let's start with privacy basics: The bathroom door.



After several years of repeated discussions, my son has finally learned to knock on the closed bathroom door. About 60% of the time he also waits for acknowledgement before trying to come in. It is (in my head) a parenting triumph.…

The full story of media abstinence for children

Before our son was born, my husband and I talked about what kind of environment we wanted for him. And one of the areas we agreed on was that we wouldn't expose him to a lot of media. The decision came from information from several sources citing that media use was not good for infants. 



Since that time, more research has been done, and a more complete story has…

Nobody knows you like Facebook

As previously mentioned, I am not a Facebook user. (And, for the record, I have no problem with people who are avid Facebook users as long as they understand the site's policies.) I know how the site works as I used to have to monitor my company's account. When I did the monitoring, I had lots of internal conversations about data tracking with my bosses. So, I was very intrigued to read how well Facebook knows who you are with just your…
