Ready, Steady, Shoot ~ Review & Giveaway!!!!!

Ready, Steady, Shoot.
Three words you need to know for great videos of whatever you desire.


That's it.
Just three little words.


Easy, right?
I know, a lot of people freeze up when it comes to taking videos.


This book, Pocket Posh Guide to Great Home Video, Ready, Steady, Shoot by Roger Sherman, is the book for all of us.
Yes.
All. Of. Us.
No exceptions.


I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to review it.
It is extremely informative.
My fav chapter: Zooming Equals Death.
Poetic, no?
Seriously, it explains why zooming is not always the best option when filming (ever see Blair Witch Project? Have to take an anti-nausea pill afterwards?...that why!)


Remember, now a days, you aren't just using a video camera to film...everything from a Flip to your iPhone is able to take videos now.  This book is essential for all the video capable devices.


Using the author's 10 Shot Video learning system, anyone can practice making short, easy to understand exercises to get the hang of it.  The best part: The book is only about 4x6 so it is easily portable.  I take it with me to Cheeks flag football on Sunday & read when he's not playing.  Seriously, flag football can be slow you know...tee hee.


Of course, this book will be coming in very handy when Tim graduates this June.  In 2008,  ok 1998, hmph in 1988 when I graduated high school no one thought to video me.  Of course back in the day video cameras where huge...they were getting smaller but nothing like today.  Can you really believe I graduated that long ago? I know! Me either.


I digress.


Now onto the best part, how would you like to own this book?

Recalls Plus App ~ One That You Need

SheSpeaksbutton
I was fortunate enough to get to try out the Recalls Plus App.

Can I just say...Love!

Anything that is going to help me with my child's well being is a plus in my book.

A few years ago, I bought Cheeks some blocks.  After a few weeks of use, I got an email saying they had been recalled for lead.
Lead!
Needless to say those puppies were thrown out & someone was tested for lead poisoning.
Thankfully he did not have it.

Had this app been available a few years back, I would have known way before I did.

The app helps a parent to be proactive.  It has recalls for strollers, cribs, toys, formula & many other things.
It's such a cinch to use as well.

Best of all, thanks to SheSpeaks and the SAP, the makers of the app, it's free.
FREE!

Check it out: Recalls Plus App.

This app even helps catch allergens in kids food.  Fortunately, Cheeks doesn't have food allergies but a ton of kids at his school, including one child in his class, do.  With this you know toot sweet if the food is going to make your little one sick.

You can get the app on Facebook, iPhone & Androids.

What are you waiting for?
Go!
Get!
Let me know what you think!!

Uknow Kids ~ Info & Giveaway!

If you are a parent, a grandparent, aunt, uncle, teacher or anyone who wants to help protect kids, you need this program.

It's Uknowkids.com.

What's it about, Schmeggy? you ask.

Read on!

The concept of uKnow.com was born in June of 2009. The team developed an online service that makes it easier for you to connect to your child’s digital world. Our technology helps protect kids from predators, bullies and sexting. Unlike parental control software, uKnow.com enables parents to “have their child’s back” without constantly looking over their shoulder. By giving parents the information they need to educate and engage their children about staying safe online and smarter tools to supervise their children in a digital world, uKnow.com helps make technology safer for kids and less intimidating for parents. And by supplementing this proactive approach to parenting social and mobile kids with a notification and reporting system to inform parents if their child becomes intertwined in a risky situation, uKnow.com provides parents with uniquely smart tools to help keep our kids safe.

The owner & creator of Uknow.com created this site because his own son became a target of a child predator!

I love this program because you, the parent, monitor everything your child does on the internet.  This is definitely something we use in the Meghan's Mindless Muttering Household for sure!  With 3 boys, 2 who are under 18, it's definitely needed.

Uknow.com is allowing me to giveaway a code for a membership to it's programs.

I highly recommend entering the giveaway to win.  It's win-win for you & your kids!

Check out the video explaining the concept:


So now it's time to enter the giveaway so you can win the code to start protecting your child.
