The Digital Family Summit: A Weekend Devoted to Tech, Video, Social Media for Tweens and Teens!

At KidzVuz we believe that technology is not the enemy, and that our kids need the right tools and knowledge to become creative, responsible digital citizens.  That’s why we are so excited to be part of the first ever Digital Family Summit in Philadelphia from June 29th-July 1st.  The Digital Family Summit is an interactive, […]

Building Social Media Savvy Kids

So excited to be in the Wall Street Journal today in the article, Tweens’ Secret Lives Online.  It’s a great write-up for KidzVuz.com and an issue I feel passionately about.  Kids are online.  Kids are going to make mistakes.  The two realities are not a great combination.  But, they are realities nonetheless.  So we have […]

Every Day is Take Your Child to Work Day in My House

I woke up this morning to find endless articles, tweets and Facebook updates about people and companies talking about Take Your Child to Work Day.  I’m glad no one told my daughters about this special holiday, because then they’d be sitting right next to me at the kitchen table as I write this post.  And […]

When it’s OK to Work For Free (Really!)

There have a been a flurry of articles in the mom blogging space over the past year about mom bloggers who work for free and how you should never, ever do it.  I wrote one myself for Mom Blog Magazine.  You’ve heard it before: You cheapen everybody’s work; you make it harder for anyone to […]

She Streams Conference: The Next Evolution in Blogging?

I started with this blog.   I formed the Blogging Angels podcast a year ago.  I launched a user-generated video site, KidzVuz, this year.  And I am not unique.  All around me women are launching real media careers from their blogs – taking charge of their presence and voice in as many outlets as possible.  Once […]

My 7 Links Challenge – Writing Against My Will

If you know me you know I am not a big joiner.  I never did the 25 things about me meme on Facebook, I rarely answer those emails that urge you to answer questions and then send them on to 5 more people, I hate polls, but I am writing this post because this game […]

One Post, A New Friend and A Look Back on Jewish Italy

Two years ago today I was in Pitigliano Italy, site of one of the oldest Jewish towns in Italy – though of course not anymore.  I blogged every day of our month-long stay in Italy and Pitigliano was particularly hard to write about.  I thought about this post recently because when I wrote it I […]

Ain’t No Party Like a BlogHer Party (except the 50 other BlogHer parties)

As BlogHer looms ever closer the party haves and have-nots are starting to make their voices heard on Twitter and across the blogosphere.  It’s inevitable that when there are 3000 women at a conference, but only a small amount of invitations available for many events, that jealousy – or even panic – will set in.  […]

Blog Early and Often and Other Interesting Findings…

I got this chock full slide show of social media marketing data in my inbox today and thought it was too good not to share.  I especially like the advice on posting to your blog early in the morning since blog readership and commenting peaks by 8am.  Guess blogs have become the new morning newspaper… […]

I Love Your Blog – But Not You

One of the unanticipated perks of being a mom blogger is all of the amazingly talented, funny, witty and inspirational women that I’ve gotten to know.  In New York I am fortunate to have a group of women (and a couple men too) whom I regularly see at events or record with or work with […]
