There’s so much great information in articles and blog posts out on the web, we are trying to roundup our favorites of the week and share them with you on a somewhat regular basis. Here’s what we put together this week.
Watch your online check-ins on Foursquare or Facebook, because although fun to let people know where you are, it can also be pretty dangerous. A new app called “Girls Around Me” can now take your public Foursquare check-in data and link it back to your Facebook page, according to this post, Think Twice Before Posting Location Data, on Mom Blog Magazine. Scary stuff, especially when our kids information may be involved.
Can all of our sharing on social media make us feel like we are lousy moms? Your Children Want YOU! is a post inspired by the thought that moms everywhere are logging onto Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and the like and and seeing photos and hearing stories of everything they are not cooking, crafting and doing – and thinking that they are not enough. A great post on a great and current important topic.
Today’s tech savvy and well connected moms are increasing the statistics of mom-owned businesses in the US every day. With quotes from some amazing business mom’s, including our good friend Maria Bailey of BSM Media, learn about The Rise of the Mommy Economy published in Oregon Business.
Do you consider your phone a part of your family? Just kidding, but really, my phone is an integral part of my life. It helps keep our calendar and contact information together, along with keeping me in touch with friends and family. If you love phone apps that will help you, here’s a great post with A Dozen Apps for Busy Moms including apps for a recipe finder, coupon collector and more.
