Skyping My Way Through The Day


At any given time a day you can find me on my computer (not all day I promise). At at any given time I am on the computer you will find Skype open and chirping.

Throughout my time in the blogging world I have made close friends all over the country. But Skype makes it feel like they are all in my living room. Sometimes all at once, all “talking” at once, with emoticons everywhere. It is my happy place.

Sometimes Ryan travels for work. And we all miss him desperately when he is gone. But when his face pops up on Skype it is almost like he is sitting across the dinner table asking the kids about his day.

And on the rare occasion Ryan and I get away together Skype is what makes us be able to focus on each other. Because we know we can check in with the kiddos and they don’t miss us near as much. And we can usually tell by the weary looks on my parents faces how things are going back at home.

Cards, letters, emails and Facebook updates are all nice. But there is nothing like being able to see the faces of the people you love. Mother’s Day is coming up. Wouldn’t your mom love more than anything to see you face to face (unless you are my mom who sees me every day. She frankly probably wants a break for Mother’s Day).

So of course you could do a boring old card for your mom for Mother’s Day. OR you could send her a rocking greeting from Skype’s “Mom’s You Rock” Facebook app. It is a fun way to rock out with a band and let your mom know how much she means to you. And the best part is, with every video created Skype will donate $1 to a fantastic charity, Save The Children.

I am really excited to announce that I have been chosen as a Skype Ambassador and will be doing some fun Skype experiments in the next few months. I actually have something really fun planned for June and am hoping you all will join in the fun. In the meantime tell me:

How do you use Skype?

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Skype. I received Skype credits to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.


  1. I love skype! My brother lives in the virgin islands, so he would barely know my kids if it weren’t for skype. Kids can be so hard on the phone, but skype is AWESOME.

    Also I helped my sister learned to breastfeed via skype. We both had newborns at the same time (my third, her first). True story.

    ALSO my bff uses skype to talk to his parents back home in iowa, because his dad doesn’t hear well and skype makes conversations easier, seeing people’s faces.

    SO BASICALLY IT’S AWESOME FOR A MILLION REASONS. #skypeftw #hashtagsinblogcomments

  2. I use Skype to chat with the friends I have made blogging who are spread from hither to yon.

    A family who are dear friends of ours just moved to Togo. How great to Skype with them and get a tour of their new home.

    Skype rocks, it’s as simple as that.
