The Gaga Epidemic And Ignoring the Body Shamers

Although it seems like it’s been around forever, body shaming is a relatively new issue facing our young girls today. The age of social media and reality television has taken the act of critically looking at women’s bodies away from scouts of runway models and puts it into the hands of every person who has a smartphone. Even before this new generation of technology, women were praised looking a certain way, but the era of photoshopped magazine covers and edited Instagram photos have given us regular folks a false sense of what a person’s body – no matter their size – actually looks outside of staged shoots.

How to Use Hashtags Momtrepreneur 101

Added to the Oxford Dictionary in 2010, you are most likely familiar with hashtags throughout social media, but do you know where the term originated from and what the best practices are for how to use them?

Before social media took over the symbol, the lonely # [number or pound] sign was resigned to mailing addresses and pencil types. With limited use in everyday conversation, the pound sign was ideal for helping users of fast paced Twitter to group discussions in an easy to search platform. Since then, other social sites have adopted hashtag usage but few users understand how hashtags can be more than an aside at the end of your most recent post.

We’ve put together some tips and tricks for how to properly use hashtags on a variety of social sites and how Momtrepreneurs can capitalize on this social tool for growing your businesses.

Dad’s Guide to Staying Close to the Family While on the Road

Dads Guide to Staying Close to the Family While on the Road

Unfortunately, some of us have to pack our suitcases up often for our jobs– and as much as we don’t like leaving our families, knowing that a week here, or a month there is just what we signed up to do.  Obligation overtakes heartache, and we grab our sick-packs, neck rolls and toothbrushes to board our airline of choice to rack up our frequent flier miles, and off we go across the globe.

Up until the last ten years, if you traveled for work, you were a slave to the hotel room’s phones, lobby pay phones, post cards, and snail mail to stay in touch.  And even if you were able to get in touch with a loved one… time was limited because there was actually a time where we paid long distances fees to talk from state to state.  Any veteran military spouse can tell you technology has come a very long way from what it used to be.

The truth is technology is so unbelievable today that a lonesome traveler doesn’t have to suffer the hotel-room-blues anymore.  Speaking from our own experiences, here are some tips to staying close to your family while you’re gone.
