New Tool to Help You Protect Your Kids Online

I’ve written about being protective of your kids when they’re online. There are lots of dangers in the sites older children love to visit most, such as MySpace or even in their email. Monitoring their usage is vital.

However, you can’t be standing behind them every second, and that’s where a quality software solution comes in handy. Today I read about one I hadn’t heard of before.

SpectorSoft has a software that can help. It can be used for Myspace tracking and other online activities. You can have it alert you to the usage of certain keywords or phrases, so that even if it happens in IM, chat, email or MySpace you’ll know about it. Read the rest of this entry »

Here Comes Christmas

Yes, with Black Friday only days away, the Christmas season is almost at full swing. Get ready for Christmas music in all the stores not playing it already and even more crazed people shopping for that perfect gift.

My family has a pretty good handle on Christmas. I just finished handling my family’s name “draw” which isn’t so much a draw as me figuring out how to divide the names up fairly so that no one is having to spend more than a fair share and isn’t shopping for the same person year after year.

We have a lot of fun at Christmas. There’s a bit of competition we have sometimes with this elf and ladder set my mom has. We try to find the oddest way to assemble them. It started because we couldn’g find the pegs to assemble the three ladder pieces together. Read the rest of this entry »

PayPerPost Rube Goldberg

I can’t believe the mice wouldn’t help me with this one. I went ahead and took the time to find out how to download a movie onto my computer, first time ever, so I could do this payperpost project.

Here’s how the whole Rube Goldberg thing went. Dropped a ball down the digeridoo, which hit more balls, which dropped onto a rolling pin, which rolled down and hit the Earth (ball), which knocked over a box, which knocked over another box, which pushed a toy truck, which pushed over a stack of Legos, which pushed over another stack of Legos, which knocked over a block, which knocked over a Lego, which knocked a ball down an oven mitt, which hit a brick in the barn, which hit the barn door, which knocked the coins all over the paper with PayPerPost written on it. Phew!

Watching PayPerPost Fun

You just have to love watching a good show. And the PayPerPost Wedding certainly qualifies for that.

I love seeing what companies come up with to get the word out. It’s also fun getting procrastinating couples to go ahead and tie the knot in Vegas.

There are those who would accuse me of procrastinating marriage, but in reality my husband and I didn’t put off getting married, as we got married 7 months after becoming engaged. We put off dating. Only knew each other for 10-1/2 years before getting married, and only maybe 2 years of that was dating.

However, the couple I voted for didn’t really have that problem. And wouldn’t you like to know who I voted for??? Do you really think I’m going to tell you? Read the rest of this entry »

Checking Out the PayPerPost Forums

PayPerPost works hard to keep its “Posties” happy. They have a nicely active forum for people to post questions, problems or just discuss stuff in general.

I’ve checked out the PayPerPost forums a time or two, but never quite gotten around to joining. I have a decided lack of questions so far, as well as not being familiar enough with a lot of things to provide answers. But I have had some fun reading them and gotten some great insights.

I think the one challenge I had was in discovering them. There doesn’t appear to be a link in the blogger’s section of PayPerPost. It’s on the home page of the site, however. I spent a while going through my blogger dashboard looking for them before finally thinking to check the home page. Maybe I’ve missed it.

I love reading the opps that other people have enjoyed writing about. It doesn’t matter that the opp often is no longer available.. it’s seeing the enthusiasm and unusual ideas that people come up with that is so much fun.

Am I earning money doing this? Well, all my posts are still pending approval, but including this one I will have earned about $40. Not exactly big bucks but a nice addition. I’m happy about it.

Update:
Yes, I’ve joined and participated.
