We Trended on Twitter #EcoDisco


Did you join us at the Eco-Disco Twitter Party?  What a wicked good time we all had (I had fun, didn't you?)!! Guess what?  We trended on Twitter during the party!  That means the #ecodisco hashtag was rated in the Top 10 hashtags during our hour long party!  No small feat to achieve a trending twitter party!  Sadly, one of the downfalls of trending is the spam that comes along with it.  I promise we were not promoting and R-rated information during our party and if you happened to open a link from one of the spammers I have NO IDEA what you would have seen. But it was fun (or groovy, funkadelic, far out) to party with all of you for the hour. We updated the list of winners on the original party RSVP page if you're interested.  They have all been contacted and their info will be shared with the sponsors tomorrow.  Prize fulfillment is provided by the sponsors so watch your mailboxes. Ready for another party?  We'll be doing large group sponsor parties like this one ... [ Read More ]

How to Use TweetGrid for Parties – Twitter Parties 101

Looking for an easier way to take part and follow a Twitter Party?  TweetGrid is one of my favorite party tools.  Here's a brief tutorial on how to use TweetGrid for parties: 1. How do I refresh my page – it’s appeared to slow down or stick?  DO NOT refresh the page by using the Windows refresh button.  Instead if you select the FULL ADDRESS button at the top of the TweetGrid your grid will be refreshed without having to reset or lose your place. 2.  How do I share my TweetGrid with others?  You can simply click TWEET IT from the top of the grid and a shortened URL will appear in your tweet box.  Select TWEET and you have now shared your TweetGrid with others. 3.  I don’t see my tweets showing up in the grid, why?  There may be many reasons.  First check to see if you added your user name to the 3rd grid and select SEARCH.  You can enter @User or simple User and you can now see when people talk to you AND when your tweets show up in the stream.  If that doesn’t work – you ...

#changingdiapers Twitter Party Recap

I think I'm still on my "Twitter High" - you know that feeling you get after a fun filled @EcoChicParties Twitter Party!  We had over 675 people on the RSVP list and I hear that my website crashed for a few minutes and wouldn't let everyone register.  I seriously need to get more techie (or hire someone techie) to help me speed my poor blogs up a bit.  I'm savvy with many things but not with that! If you were able to make it you know that we had a ton of fun with @KellyWels talking about her new book; Changing Diapers, The Hip Mom's Guide to Modern Cloth Diapering. With over 20 sponsors and over 75 prizes to be awarded there was not a moment to spare. It was fabulous seeing all our sponsors present and tweeting with you all - I can't thank them enough but I'm sure you can think of some ways to help with that.  Every time you "Like" or "Follow" or comment on their pages please be sure to say thank you for their role in the party.  Without them there would be no prizes and without ...

Birth of a Cloth Diaper Advocate

Day 5 - Birth of an Advocate.  Making a commitment to cloth diapering doesn't just affect you and your immediate family.  You will soon realize that you will be teaching others about cloth diapers each and every day.  In the early days you will be introducing cloth diapers to your spouse and other family members (grandparents, aunts, uncles) and friends.  They will have similar questions and concerns as you do and it's easy for use to fall back info disposables in an effort to not cause any conflicts amongst our loved ones.  But you have the power as a parent to teach these people instead of giving them a 'get out of fluff free card.' My husband wasn't hard to educate since we were both learning together.  My mom was (and still is) one of my biggest supporters.  Having used cloth diapers on both me and my brother she was extremely excited to use these new modern cloth diapers.  My mom used a diaper service when we were little so she didn't have to wash her diapers but she did have ...

Tell Everybody the News – #RumparoozMusic


This has been a very busy week for my friends over at Rump-a-rooz.  This past weekend they attended a local baby & kids expo where they equipped one Colorado family with a stash of 64 colorful and fun Rump-a-rooz.  They also had their skeptics like the one mom who never thought Rump-a-rooz would fit their chunky little 29lb six month old (yes 6 months) - guess what?  After a trip to the changing table they were proud to find out just how perfect the Rump-a-rooz fit this little man.  In another week the Rump-a-roozteam will be packing their fluff and heading to Las Vegas baby!  It's time for the annual ABC Kids Expo (You can follow #ABCKidsExpo on Twitter) once again where companies and retailers meet up and elope at a little chapel on the strip (OK a very large conference center)!  Anyways, this is the time of year when manufacturers and brands bring out all of their NEW products in hopes to be the 'next big thing' to hit the baby and kids market.  I hear that Rump-a-rooz has ...
