Awesome Pinterest Boards to Follow!

I remember being at a conference 4 years ago when one of the presenters talked about this new thing that was going to be BIG someday called Pinterest.  We all scratched our heads because we couldn’t envision what she was talking about.  A visual pin board?  What on earth does that mean?  Now I laugh thinking back on how we had no clue that this new little tool was going [Read More…]

How to protect your kids on Facebook: Honestly Social

Honestly Social

Just last week a few friends were talking about their kids using social media. This post isn’t meant to tell you how to parent.  Because frankly, I’m still trying to figure out how to parent my three and I’m almost thirteen years on the job.  See what I mean? Times have changed.  My Punky Brewster loving years are long gone.   My mom used to send us outside and let [Read More…]

Pure Bliss


Blissdom has come and gone…. I still can’t quite wrap my brain around it. After months and months of talking, planning and preparing I hopped on a party plane to Nashville, Tennessee for Blissdom. I was lucky enough to room with four amazing ladies: Lindsey, Jeannett, April and Jess. I also had the chance to meet people that I consider my friends for the first time. (yes blogging can seem [Read More…]


I feel like I’m starting to get the hang of things, social media wise. I have a looooong way to go but at least I know what’s out there. sorta. So have you heard of StumbleUpon? It’s just another way to get your blog out there- kinda similar to “liking” a Facebook fan page or Tweeting. You can download a toolbar that makes it really easy to click “I like [Read More…]

What about Tumblr?

Back from a whirlwind trip to Las Vegas and ready to tackle the week. Continuing on in my pursuit to better understand social media, next up is Tumblr. All of the social media that I’ve been posting about isn’t meant for everyone. Take what you want and run with it.

And now on to Facebook: I recently learned that it’s going against Facebook rules to include “liking” a page as part of a giveaway entry. I had no idea. Did you know? Facebook has me a little stumped. So this post is probably [Read More…]

Image via Naldz Graphics My head is spinning after The Creative Connection and I have so many ideas to share. I didn’t know where to begin. So I decided to post about Twitter.
