Favouriting A Tweet

Public Or Private

by: Sharon DeVellis

I'm just going to throw this one out there because I want your opinion.

Last Friday I was on my way to Ottawa to celebrate Winterlude with my family (more on that to come).  It's a five hour drive so when I got tired of reading, I went on Twitter and started going through tweets favouriting anything I thought I might want to read later when I had access to my computer.

Foursquare: WTF

Can Someone Please Explain This To Me?

by: Sharon DeVellis

I don't get Foursquare. I mean I get that you can save money or unlock rewards but I just don't get it.  When you check in with Foursquare you're essentially telling the internet:

a) You're not at home: Hey! Look at me! I just checked into a hotel in the Bahamas which means my house is empty and everything is ripe for the taking.

or

b) Where you are: Hey! Look at me! I'm grocery shopping at Big Box Grocery Store—come stalk me.

Sharon is a Common Sense Parent which is somewhere in between being free-range and helicopter. She believes in being active as a family and eating well 85% of the time. The other 15% is for the days when she's PMSing and then all bets are off. So far her parenting style has worked wonders for her two boys who astound her on a daily basis but that's not to say she doesn't have time to totally screw it up. She can't teach you how to keep your house clean while balancing a job and motherhood but if you're a mom who's struggling to figure it out, you've found your tribe.
