Setting Rules With Smartphone for Children

We live in this day and age where things like a smartphone are expected. There are parents out there who genuinely feel guilty if their child is the only one amongst their friend circle that doesn’t have a cell phone or the freedom to walk around town aimlessly. I never feel guilty. I parent my children the way I parent them, other children have nothing to do with my rules nor my children. With that being said, if a child is willing to work for extra items, such as a smartphone, or if the situation calls for a child needing […]

Duracell Powermat “24 Hour Power System” for the iPhone 4/4s or the Galaxy S3 Giveaway #takecharge

The box arrived and we had our Duracell Powermat charging kit for our iPhones and we couldn’t have been more happy. I am not great at following directions but these were super easy to setup. We plugged the unit into our wall and were ready to stop fighting for an outlet for our three iPhones we have in the house. The unit was plugged in on our cabinet in the kitchen, a main area of the home for easy, quick charging access. Once we had the unit plugged into the outlet, we then had to put the Duracell Powermat case […]

Handable Helps me Not Cringe when Daughter Holding iPhone #cell #holidaygift #spon

I am so happy to have The HandAble Phone Holder as part of my holiday gift guide this year, seriously. This has been a fantastic product to have because my daughter now has an iPhone. Obviously it was a difficult decision giving my child such an expensive cell phone, but in all honesty it just made sense for our plan. The cost was more effective than us all having different devices. I must admit though, I cringe each time my tweenager has her iPhone in her hand either texting, reading an ebook or playing a game. My daughter has my […]

One Day Wasted

Woke up with no internet. It was fun. That was yesterday. Went all day without internet because when they finally turned it back on  .. they did what they always do FORGOT TO REFRESH THE MODEM. I sat with nothing to do but twiddle my thumbs, lay with Jenny the Pug and attempt to work best I could from my iPhone. Sure I could have written some content in Word but when my brain is so annoyed at no internet, it doesn’t write very well. So I laid in bed. All day. Why? Because that was the best option to […]

Is Your Broadband Fast Enough?

What carrier do you use for your broadband coverage? Here, where I live, I have to use whatever is available and the fastest possible option because of the fact that the Internet is where I make a living from. Writing, publishing, editing and using social media is all my avenue of money making, so without any form of Internet connection I would be out of a job. Without a job, there is no income from me. Without income, well you know where that will lead. No where fast. Getting back to the talk of broadband service, virgin media broadband offers […]

Holiday Gift Idea – Bass Buds High Performance in-ear Headphones

Today I get to share a fantastic gift idea for someone in your life who has an MP3 player or simply enjoys using head phones to listen to audio books or music like crazy. My oldest was so excited when BassBuds arrived because her current in-ear headphones have been attacked by the four year old and she uses them often. Between waiting for me to get her at the school while listening to her MP3 player and using her in-ear headphones while playing on the Kindle Fire; this girl needed a new pair. BassBuds.net sent my family a pair of […]

I Actually Do Have a Life and Business to Deal With

I remember when I used to have a cool smartphone, that Blackberry totally rocked my world but the problem with it was; I was working 24/7, literally checking email before bed, as soon as I rolled out of bed, replying to emails within moments of them reaching my inbox. I think reps started to get used to me replying so quickly and maybe they are used to this with other bloggers as well which means they send you opportunities expecting a quick reply, as in within moments. Slow down people! You do not need to reply to a reps contact […]

Who Knew Life Without a Smartphone Was Fun

I started my love of smartphones when a Research in Motion Representative offered to provide me with a Blackberry Tour, The Blackberry Diaries book and a specific time with a Verizon Wireless account. This was a way to not only read the book, which I still love, but a way to find out what life as a mom with a smartphone was all about just like the author wrote about in her book. Eventually I continued on with a Verizon Wireless account and upgraded to another Blackberry and then a Droid HTC Incredible. I loved each smartphone I had because: […]
