Alexa: My New Best Friend

January 25th, 2016

One evening, admittedly after a few glasses of wine, my husband and I saw a commercial for the Amazon Echo. We were so intrigued, I purchased it from my phone right then and promptly forgot about it. By the time we received it a few weeks later, I wasn't even that anxious to plug it in because I couldn't imagine what we would really do…

Reddit 101

January 7th, 2016

Earlier this week, I visited with KATV about Reddit, what it is, how to use and whether your kids should use it.

While most of our digital team members were reticent to…

I come with a lot of baggage. My daily tote bag. My travels. And even to meetings. I say that I am high maintenance, but that I can maintain myself. And usually can maintain all the people around me with all the stuff that I carry with me. Over the last several years I have tried to lighten my loads, but that each attempt barely…

Favorite App of the Week: BarkCam by BarkBox

Rarely do I download an app and use it more than a few days or a couple of times before its novelty expires. I thought that BarkCam by BarkBox would be one of those apps. But given the fact that I take many, many pictures of my three dogs, BarkCam has become one of my favorite apps. First a bit about BarkBox: it is a…
