Go Daddy Twitter Party, NoWebSitis #NoWebSitis

Small Business Website: Win One from Go Daddy!

Co-hosting a Twitter party two days ago for Go Daddy, I realized how much we all cherish our local small businesses. They are a vital part of our local community and we feel good supporting them. From Farmers’ Markets to our neighborhood bookstore, we all unanimously want them to succeed.

Not all my favorite local businesses have websites, particularly my artisan mom friends. It’s usually the cost combined with lack of expertise in the technical arena that prevents them from tackling their small business website. It’s a shame.  A website is an important marketing and sales tool. But now I can win one for them!

Go Daddy’s No WebSitis Contest

I’m excited about Go Daddy’s No WebSitis contest. They are giving away 10 domain one year registrations PLUS a one year Premium Website Builder plan. Even better, they are providing special assistance to create the site.

It’s easy to win:

1) Go here to nominate your favorite small business: 

2) Vote for your favorite small business beginning June 25th and running through July 15th. Read more…

Friday Find: Pedometer to Teach Kids Math and Fitness

Getting Kids Active While Doing Math

I received this nifty gadget from Reebok to try for February Heart Awareness month. It took me more than 2 months to actually try it out because I thought it was complicated to figure out.  I am not good with the gadgets. It sat in the kitchen for a month before I realized I really need to try it out, plus I wanted to clock the number of steps I take at the off leash dog park around the reservoir. I’ve heard rumors that it’s 1.85 miles for one loop. Read more…

Neti Pot, an Ayurvedic Remedy For Pollen Allergies

Neti Pot Effective Pollen Allergy Cure

After reading about the amoeba problem (that kills you) with the Netti Pot if you don’t use sterilized water, my Mom Friend Gwen found something better. It’s called the Grossan Hydro Pulse Nasal and Sinus Irrigation System, developed by a doctor. It’s like a Braun toothbrush system but for your nose/sinuses. It’s $78. She swears by it and I want to get one if I can make space for it in our tiny bathroom. Read more…

Cool Tech For Moms from CES

Best Tech Gadgets for Moms

I read a newsletter called Engaged Moms and this was the report back from the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES), a playground/trade show for techy types. Stephanie Azzarone reports back on cool tech for mom and indeed, this stuff is cool! Makes me wish I still needed a stroller. Anyway, I was thinking this might be right in time for Valentine’s gift for mom — thoughtful, high techy, practical and useful (and so much better than a vacuum or blender!). Read more…
