My family consists of gamers, techies or geeks. And I LOVE IT! That’s why this Holiday Gift Guide for Techy & Gamers is probably my favorite. My 13yr old is obsessed with FortNite and my Oldest loves the racing games like Grand Theft Auto 5 or Forza. My husband loves Final Fantasy Games (he pretty much loves all of them) and my obsession with The Elder Scrolls Series or Assassin’s Creed. Gaming aside, I love tech. ALL things tech! If I could have everything, I would. I’d probably have all of the latest computers, tablets, cell phones, smart devices, etc. My husband always rolls his eyes whenever I talk about swapping out the old out dated thermostats for new smart thermostats.
The use of social media is rising dramatically, and every new social media app has some sort of marketing option for businesses. Facebook and Instagram have sponsored ads. Snapchat allows users to follow brands they love, and that’s only the beginning. You’ve probably already seen sponsored social media posts from social media influencers.
I recently had a blogger event about an hour away from home and it was just for me. I couldn’t take my husband or a kid. JUST ME! Sure, I could go into “work mode” and sometimes that works, but what am I going to do BEFORE “work mode” sets in? I knew I was going to be at least 30 minutes early, so I wanted to walk around town a little.
The other day my youngest son was playing a popular game on the Xbox One. I overheard the conversations a few kids and my son was having and he said something that surprised me since we’ve talked about internet safety quite a bit. He mentioned that he was only 12 and that he was home with his mom and that he couldn’t do something because he wasn’t allowed to. It shocked me. So I had him turn the game off and we discussed again how telling people online that you don’t know personally, any type of personal information is unacceptable.
