Sponsored by Frito-Lay, all opinions are my own

In February, fans were asked to select one of three potential heroes they wanted to see come to life in the next Skylanders® video game. Once their Skylanders® selection was made, contestants then submitted a suggested name and a 200-character or less inspiration for the name they chose. A qualified panel of judges, including executives from Frito-Lay and Activision, selected the three finalists from nearly 20,000 fan submissions.

The finalist receiving the most eligible fan votes who submitted the selected hero name will be awarded a $100,000 scholarship. Voting closed on June 13, 2014 and the winner will be revealed later this year.

Wp Auto Affiliate Links Plugin Makes #Affiliate Work Easy #Giveaway

Wp Auto Affiliate Links

 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

Wp Auto Affiliate Links is a wordpress plugin that will automatically add affiliate links into your content. It can work with links that you add manually or you upload trough a data feed, but it can also extract and display links from Amazon and Clickbank.

Successful bloggers are getting most of their income by promoting affiliate products. However, this is not easy because you have to post and maintain all your affiliate links. What if you had to insert affiliate links in 500 posts, or 1000? That will take an enormous amount of time. What if one of the products you placed links for changed affiliate network and you have to change all the links ? Dealing with affiliate links on a high content blog may take all your free time so you are going nowhere.

My Take on the Plugin

I have been using this now for some time and I have been finding that this seems to work so easily. The installation was simple and once complete, setting up your connections to affiliates was also quite quick and painless.

In looking at my posts after connecting the plugin, I did not find that the links were overwhelming and in fact in the settings itself you have the ability to control how frequently you want to even see affiliate links. You can set specific posts to not allow affiliate links which is good based on working relationships you may have too.

All-in-all I have been impressed thus far with the plugin. I am still waiting to see whether this leads to more affiliate sales or not, but only time will tell on that!

Giveaway

How would you like to win this for yourself or for your family? All you need to do is fill out the below form to be entered.  The contest will run for one week and will end on July 13, 2014.

About the Magazine

People are always talking about how they want to be happier, but not as often about the practical solutions to actually live happier.

That’s where Live Happy magazine comes in. Encouraging everything from small moments throughout the day to ideas on how to achieve lifelong authentic happiness – Live Happy provides advice and practical solutions to help people do exactly what it says – LIVE HAPPIER!

The May/June 2014 issue focuses on COMPASSION. The first lifestyle magazine to balance the science of positive psychology with the art of application, Live Happy reveals recent studies and research that confirm that people who practice compassion – the feeling of empathy for others –receive an array of benefits that go beyond simply feeling good.

My Take on the Book

I was quite impressed with this magazine. With every page that I read I found that my spirits were raised and that I felt more motivated to do more for others and live a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling life. Too often we get mired in the negative, whether it is in our own personal or professional lives, or even what we see on television or even read online. This magazine was a breath of fresh air and really helps you to revitalize your own spirit and awaken something new within me to change some of the things that I do daily to impact even more people!

Animal Jam Is Fun & Opens Minds @PlayAnimalJam #Giveaway

Animal_jam



 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

As a parent you are always looking for online communities that allow for kids to be able to not only learn, but also be able to connect with others in a safe atmosphere. Over the past month my daughters have been trying out the new National Geographic Animal Jam online community. What I found interesting was how each of my daughters interacted with the community. My eldest daughter loved the games and being able to build her animal’s den, as well as being able to adopt pets for her animal as well. My youngest conversely, loved interacting with the environment as well as moving around the worlds, finding animals hidden in each of the worlds.

Animal_Jam

The one thing that I have found in Animal Jam that I like as a parent is that there is a great balance of both education and entertainment. You can tell that much time was spent to make the environment interactive and fun, while still holding true to the ideals of National Geographic and what they try to encourage in everything that they share both in print and online.

My daughters loved the customization that was present from the very beginning when they were signing up to the ability to create and design their dens. It allowed them to be able to keep their experience different from each other, but also allowed them to have fun and have come common experiences too.

All-in-all I was really impressed with Animal Jam and think that you and your kids will too. Just remember to encourage your kids to explore, click and check out everything in the Animal Jam world!

My Take on the Site

As someone that wears nice clothing everyday for my professional job I am always looking for clothes that will last a long time and that look good too. Recently I found out about Original Stitch and I was excited to check out the site and what it offers. In looking through the site itself I was impressed to find the breadth and depth that it offered consumers. I explored the site and found that there was a ton of things that could be customized and that no matter what your size you were able to develop clothing that will fit you well and look good too.

I found the site to be very easy to use. It walks you step-by-step through the process that you would need to get the right measurements and get the right fit. I was impressed with the quality that I found on the site as well as the variety as well. The prices were also reasonable based on the fact that you are getting a customized shirt, which you cannot get by just going to the store itself.

All-in-all, this was a great site that offered great quality and customization and I highly recommend that you check out the site for yourself to see what it can offer you too!

As a dad I don’t always know what the heck I want for days like Fathers Day, which tends to frustrate my wife and kids immensely. With that in mind it becomes even more important for me to be able to go out and take some time to check out some stores that have a bit of everything to be able to make lists. So this Fathers Day, JCPenney asked me to go to their store and to make my own Father’s Day Dad’s Wish List. I don’t always do this, but I have to say that I had a ton of fun looking at all of the cool things that JCPenney had and I was impressed with the breadth and depth of the variety that the store had. I decided to make a few videos on some of the things that I found. Take a look and see what you think.

The Watchbot Helps Families With Pet Monitoring

watchbot
 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

About the Product

The WatchBot is a CCTV unit for the home or office. It has a unique 30 second set-up time and works wirelessly to enable you to watch your sleeping child in bed, keep an eye on the cat or dog while at work or simply feel reassured when you leave the office or shop at night, perfect for those going away on vacation. The WatchBot features include a motion sensor; two-way audio; remote control function from your pc, smartphone or tablet; night vision.

My Take on the Product

For me having pets is both wonderful and challenging. Pets give us unconditional love with asking little in return, while at the same time, they have needs that are sometimes hard to deal with when you have to work on a daily basis. Recently my own family adopted a new cat from a local animal control. The issue that we have with her is that she has all of her claws and as a young cat she still like to sharpen her claws and lately it has been on our own furniture. On top of this she is mischievous and is always seemingly getting into trouble, so having the ability to keep an eye on her definitely appeals to me in many ways. With that in mind this camera helps with pet monitoring and gives peace of mind and allows me to know what is happening around my home no matter where I am.

This wireless pet cam fully function and controllable camera is can be controlled remotely and you get a crisp video and even audio feed that allows you to keep an eye on what is happening both day and night within your home. With the fact that the camera has a full 360 degree control radius as well as both day and night vision capabilities, no matter if you are at work or if you are away on vacation you can know what is happening at home.

The camera was super easy to set up, and within seconds you are ready to go. One of the perks of this is the software that it comes with. The software was very easy to use and allows you full control over the camera itself. A nice thing about the software and the camera is that once set up you can use the camera over multiple devices to keep even more tabs on your home.

All-in-all I was very impressed with the quality of the camera, the crispness of the images that were shared as well as the ease of installation and usability across multiple platforms. I was even able to catch my cat doing some things that she knows she is not supposed to be doing! If you are looking for a security camera that gives you all of this and more, I encourage you to try it out for yourself today!
