A Tool to Help You Know About Inappropriate Content

What a coincedence! Yes, really. I just finished typing up my post on helping kids avoid inappropriate content, and here’s this opportunity to post about PC Pandora, a software tool to help them avoid it and to help you know what they’ve been doing online.

Talk about timing!

I hadn’t gotten into software solutions in that post, as no names really came to mind. My kids are young enough that I don’t have a lot of worries about their internet use. My 4 year old only uses the computer next to me, and she picks from a list I created. Read the rest of this entry »

Another Resource to Show My Husband

Yes, I know. I keep saying that. And no, he hasn’t gotten around to signing up and trying those voiceover sites yet. He was going to do that after New Year’s, then got sick and lost his voice. My goal is to try to get him signed up by the end of this month with one or both of the voiceover sites.

But this post isn’t about those sites. It’s about a different kind of job hunting website.

Career Linked offers Free Job Postings right now. I guess that’s a part of their beta, from the looks of their website. But of course I’m more interested in what they offer to job hunters. Read the rest of this entry »

The New PPP Guy

Well, PayPerPost is sponsoring me to post about one of their YouTube videos, so I decided to go with the video of the new guy. Here he is:

Yes, Terrence, when you start working for a company like PayPerPost, the folks they’re paying to post blog ads are going to have fun with you. But by the sound of your video I don’t think it will bother you much.

I had to watch the video a couple of times. Nothing wrong so much with the video as with my background noise here. You try listening with a toddler and a preschooler demanding your attention!

And Ted, I have one question… are you going to leak the first version? Outtakes can be fun!

Want Someone to Plan Your Child's Birthday Party?

Personally, NO!

Of course, I’m the kind of mom who still remembers how easy it is to please kids. I also enjoy expressing my creativity, and that means planning the party, baking and decorating the cake at home and so forth. But I will admit it’s not for everyone.

There are services such as Oogles N Googles that will plan children’s birthday parties for you. They have all kinds of themes to choose from. A fair number of locations too, although none in my state at all.
I will admit that Ariel would no doubt enjoy the Once Upon a Time theme, especially if she could get them to call her Rapunzel. Just a little obsession of hers right now. Read the rest of this entry »

PayPerPost vs. The Toddler

PayPerPost asked us to have them battle someone of our choosing. For me it just seemed natural to choose the challenge I face every day. Yes, PayPerPost must battle my toddler.

I turned on the camcorder as I worked on a different post, and recorded every time my son decided to interfere. Fortunately he was particularly demanding at the time. Obviously, PayPerPost doesn’t have a prayer when it comes to fighting it out with a toddler wanting Mommy.

And yes in case you’re wondering, I do get paid for blogging as well as paid to create that video. It’s fun!
