This post was sponsored by Carbonite as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. Did you know that October is Cyber Security Awareness Month? If not, now you do. I know what you’re thinking: every month should be cyber security month! We should ALWAYS be thinking about how to better secure our cyber lives. After all, hackers are always thinking about how to better break into those lives! I’m pretty smart about cyber security. At least I think I am.

I have been compensated for this connected home post in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

Coolpad 2

Can you believe I’m the mom of a 5th grader? I can’t! Jacob was in 1st grade when I started Pretty Opinionated! Back then, I wasn’t even thinking about things like after-school activities, cell phones and letting him walk home from the bus stop. Now, at 10, he’s starting band practice and begging for a bit more independence. He also needs a cell phone. While I have one that I got for him last year for review that I did love, Jake just burns through minutes on it. I needed something that let him get in touch with me anytime, […] Read more »

Check out my favorite tips for capturing authentic back to school memories and for safely storing them so they last generations!

I have been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card for this post. All opinions are my own. The back to school countdown is on! Jacob has less than two weeks until he returns.

He’s also starting band and learning the clarinet. It’s going to be an exciting year for him, and I want to document it! I have to be honest, over the last few years, I have more […] Read more »

SmartFeed 1

This post is brought to you by SmartFeed. All opinions are my own. Ever wish you could stop filtering out all the bad stuff and start filtering IN the good news for your kids? With SmartFeed, that’s exactly what you do! I’ll be honest with you, I don’t want my son watching the news. I am a pretty liberal parent. I let him watch shows and play games that many parents don’t allow. Yet I draw the line at the nightly newscast. To me, it’s the most violent show on television. As he’s getting older, I do give him access […] Read more »
