Reddit AMA Infographic

Infographic produced on PIktochart for how to produce a Reddit AMA. I recently worked with a faculty member to produce a live Reddit “AMA”s or “Ask me anything” on Data Privacy, to coincide with #DataPrivacyDay. A student worker helped tremendously with the planning process, and since I expected to be asked how we did it, I had her create this infographic explainer using Piktochart. (more…)

Qeepsake

Qeepsake app screenshotIt’s an app. It’s a service. It’s a daily prompt-delivering text service to document baby’s development!

From their website:

Empty baby book?
Try Qeepsake.

Use text messaging to store memories about your kids.

Qeepsake texts you questions about your child!

Qeepsake texts you a question about your child. You text back your response, and an entry is added to your child’s private journal.

There are free and and premium plans with three tiers of options, including the number of text prompts sent to your phone, photo uploads and other functions.

I signed up for the free trial in August, used it and really liked it, but  was reluctant to sign up for yet another paid service. Now that another three months has gone by and I still haven’t been diligent with that baby journal, I decided to go for it and signed up for the $35.88/year plan.

Ultimately, the feature that really hooked me was the daily prompts.

As always, it’ll be interesting to see how much I actually use the service over the next year. I’ll also keep an eye out for other options to see whether the service is worth the cash.

Stay tuned!
