The Blogger Behind the Blog

The Blogger Behind the Blog

nice to meet you

While here, my typical game is parenting,  technology and mom style  – I guess I should step out from behind the blog so you can meet me, the blogger.

Meet the Blogger

Me (nerd) & my sister (socialite)

Konichiwa! I am Molly, the resident blogger here at Digital Mom Blog. I’m 33 years old, 1/4 Japanese (hey I’ll take what I can get) and married to my geek husband Sean for 14 years. We have 4 of them kids (see below).

I created Digital Mom Blog in February 2010 as a creative outlet and sounding board for my geekism.  I had been blogging for years for my kids, but wanted something different – so decided to put more of a focus and blog what I love, technology! While I am not huge on labels, “digital mom” seemed to describe me best. When not blogging here, I blog for Babble and Tommy Nelson.  And when not blogging, I freelance in the blogging and marketing arenas. Oh and I like to stay busy.

My family and I reside in Dallas, TX – though we call Austin our second home (so much so, I get regular PR requests from Austin – LOVE THAT!).  Word to the wise about Dallas, we’re not like what you see on TV. Well at least most of us aren’t.

Them Kids

Them kids is my endearing term for our termites lovelies. It was an adventure having each. Now each brings so much love, laughter and crazy to our lives, we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Alice for the iPad

Alice for the iPad

So of COURSE I would love to have an iPad. In all honesty, I have no NEED for it and in an effort to sort out wants and needs – this will have to fall to the “dreaming about” list rather than the shopping list. OR if you would love to sponsor this Digital Mom with an iPad, shoot me an email (don’t hate a gal for trying! molly at digitalmomblog.com)

That being said, it doesn’t stop me from lusting over iPad apps.

Check out Alice for the iPad. Described as a modern day pop-up book, While the book isn’t geared towards adults, it seems adults can’t get enough of this app.

Alice for the iPad App

Tilt your iPad to make Alice grow big as a house, or shrink to just six inches tall. Enjoy Alice in Wonderland digitally remastered for the iPad.Throw tarts at the Queen of Hearts – they realistically bounce off her. Witness the Cheshire Cat disappear, and help the Caterpillar smoke his hookah pipe. This wonderful book includes 52 pages and 20 amazing animated scenes. Watch as full screen physics modeling brings illustrations to life.

• 52 incredible digitally-remastered pages

• 20 breathtaking animated scenes that revolutionize the Lewis Carroll classic

• Pictures that move and animate as you tilt your iPad

• A new and beautifully typeset abridged text

• The perfect interactive story for entertaining kids on a car journey

• Amaze adults and children alike with this remarkable new book design

This is a stunning treasure for the whole family to enjoy. It’s time to get your hands on Alice for iPad, one of the most gorgeous apps this year.

This is the beginning of innovative development for tablets. Creating these applications for the iPad, Slate and other tablets is ground breaking. Innovation like this will keep young readers interested and those with A.D.D. amused.

My only fear is the durability of the iPad, Slate, etc. with my kids. I know what their Leapster and Nintendo DS look like and those are built for kids.

The Alice app is available for $9 or as a free “lite” version.
