The Most Memorable Moments at Blogger Bash 2015

Head Over Heels - Blogger Bash

When I come back from a blogging event and feel compelled to write about it, I worry about several groups of my audience and wonder how I can shape the story for each of them. Group #1: Bloggers that didn’t get a chance to attend the event. Group #2: Bloggers that also attended the event. Group […]

You can teach an old dog new tricks, or how I learned to love the Care Bears

New Share Your Care Image

I’ve always considered myself a big kid. Even my son will tell me I have a kid heart. I’m constantly reliving my childhood through him with TV shows, old commercials on YouTube, and even with some of my toys (he loved my Cabbage Patch preemie doll). But as a Generation X’er, I’m sometimes on the […]

Disney Infinity will be jamming on Twitter with #BBNYC


Remember yesterday when I told you I was going to Blogger Bash and gave you all the reason why I was going and all the reasons you should go? Oh, you didn’t? Well, you can go back and read that now because it’s going to set the stage for this Twitter jam thing I’m going […]

All the reasons I’m heading to Blogger Bash

BBNYC friends

July is going to be a busy month for NYC. Although I suspect that every month is a busy one for NYC. I’ll be heading up on July 15th for no less than THREE events in the same week. But the one I’m most looking forward to is Blogger Bash. If you haven’t heard of […]

2015 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration: Day 4


If I could paint a picture of how I feel right now, it would include a happy face, sad face, and a really big exhausted face. It’s been a weekend of nonstop activity and I would have it any other way. But the conference is over. Mother’s Day is over. And my mini-vacation is over. […]

2015 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration: Day 3


Day 3 is always the best part of the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. The conference day is behind you but you still have some planned activities. And then? Lots and lots of free time to do whatever you want. I started out the day bright and early with a unique opportunity to get filmed […]

2015 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration: Day 2


CONFERENCE DAY! Conference day at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration is always a day full of surprises. We’re surprised at what the program holds and surprised at what our families spend their time doing (mine went to the pool and Magic Kingdom). It wasn’t so bad, though. I got to see some of my […]

2015 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration: Day 1


You’ve been closely following my tweets, Instagram pictures, and Facebook updates. You been watching and waiting for my video from Day 1. You maybe even set the alarm to get up early waiting for my video to post. Well, here’s the problem. I woke up at 4:30am yesterday morning for an early morning flight. I […]

Meerkat is more than just a cute little mammal from Africa


How long have you been waiting for the Next Big Thing in social media? Not only have there been tons of apps to compliment, augment, and even consolidate our social media platforms but there have also been plenty of new platforms. And most of them don’t last too long. As proof positive of this, I encourage […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Losing My Blogging Mojo

SOC Sunday 2015

This week felt like my first real brain dump. It’s been hard to let go of my writing. A lot harder than when I used to do this. So I’m thinking maybe this exercise is a good one for me. When I wrote this entry, I started in one direction and felt like my fingers carried […]

The images that come when you Google yourself


A few days ago, I was following a thread that the lovely Amy Bellgardt from MomSpark had posted on Facebook. She had apparently done a Google search of her name (which, trust me, is something anyone online should do from time to time) and looked at the images that were returned. She shared with us one […]
