Kris Cain

Kris Cain is a Chicago area mother to 2 sets of twins, photography nut, gadget addict, web designer, and blogger. In her previous life she held positions as a help desk technician, desktop support tech, and network administrator working a 9-5 job for over 15 years. She has experience building and troubleshooting computers both personally and professionally. There is a good reason why jeans are still her favorite thing to wear. That is what you wear when you have to carry dirty computers all day and crawl under desks to plug in cables! Kris is a true geek. She does not just play one on the internet. And now in her company LittleTechGirl Media she focuses on working with companies, brands, and bloggers to use social media to its full advantage. She found a way to turn her addiction into a business. Isn't that everyones dream? :) On her blog, LittleTechGirl.com she writes about her love of gadgets, social media, and anything else that crosses her mind. Kris has been involved in Social Media for around 12 years. She has experience building web communities for moms, manning forums, web site design, blog building and more. Her latest project, ChiTownMoms.net is really taking off and becoming a great resource for Chicago area moms. Kris has been a featured speaker at several conferences including Type-A Parent, Gleek Retreat, Blogalicious, and BlogHer. She has also spoken on other panels sharing her experience with social media. technology, and blogging. She has been featured in several articles both online and in print, been interviewed for 2 books, been interviewed for Ebony Magazine, and had her photo show up in Essence Magazine. She has even been on the cover of a local newspaper for Mother’s Day. She has connected with great companies such as AMD, AT&T, Intel, HP, eBay, Keurig, Chevy, Cisco, MSI, Little Debbie, Kenmore, Sears, Western Digital, Google, CNN, Verizon, and more. Kris figured out a while ago that she was destined to be a busy body really busy (hence the 2 sets of twins), and she has found peace with that.

Does the RockMelt Integrated Facebook Browser Jeopardize Your Online Security?

For the past few days I have been trying out the new RockMelt Browser. Released one week ago, it is drawing attention for being an integrated social media browser. Right now, RockMelt is in beta and is currently available by invite only. But the neat thing is that if you sign up for an invite, Facebook friends that are already using the browser get a notification that you are in need of an invite and can send you one. ...more

Interview: Anissa Mayhew Talks to BlogHer about Her Stroke, Her Recovery and the “Amazing” Support

Many of us know Anissa Mayhew as the ass-kicking, hard-charging author of Hope4Peyton and Free Anissa. Last November, we suddenly met her husband, Peter under circumstances we would never wish: Anissa had just suffered a massive stroke. He posted on her blog: I really just keep feeling like I’m in a bad dream. Do these people not realize who they are dealing with? This is Anissa Mayhew. The strongest, most amazing woman I’ve ever met. She’s thirtyfreakinfive and can move mountains with her smile. She can beat this. There was some hand squeezing the first evening. Baby step, but encouraging. Then came the news of the second bleed. ...more

You are doing awesome. Thank you so much for this. We DO love you Anissa. And your comeback so ...more
