Happy 4th Anniversary Leading Hands

21 Jun

Today, four years ago I started Leading Hands because of an incident that seemed so innocent, but scary. In the years that the blog has been around, I have never truly shared the story of how Leading Hands came to life. No, I wasn’t down below in some laboratory shouting, “It’s Alive!”. I was actually talking with Todd Bertsch one night about what I should blog about and he bluntly said, “You need to write about your passions!”. One of my passions is technology, especially the Internet and how it impacts society.

Years ago, a friend of mine told me about how his little boy was instant messaged by Santa Clause for credit card information. The instant messenger ID said “Santa Clause” and he wanted mommy and daddies credit card, so his son gave up the information. The family was hit with identity theft. At the time, my friend didn’t know what instant messaging was or what his son was doing online. This blog is dedicated to breaking down the latest online trends so you can make informed decisions.

I totally believe in the saying “If you stop learning, you stop leading.” I live to continually educate myself about online technology and how we can use it to improve our lives. I know that if this blog can inform one person to make a technology decision to improve their lives, we’ve done our job. Internet Safety isn’t the most glamorous topic, but it’s time to face the music and be S.M.A.R.T. about your kids day to day online activities. And the beat goes on…

I consider them little radio shows that I can play on my portable digital music player (iPod). You can either save it to your hard drive or carry it around with you wherever you go. The portability is the sheer beauty of it.
