We have plenty of gadgets in our home, but for some reason, it is always difficult to get my hands on them. Between Hudson’s homework, Mila’s app obsessions, and Donnie’s never-ending research on all the do-it-yourself housing projects that he has planned… I usually have to wait until everyone is asleep before I can get anything done.
So when I was contacted by Intel Tablets to join their #TabletCrew I was super excited! I decided right away that this Acer Iconia One 7 tablet would be ALL MINE. I wanted my own place to blog, keep up with social media, and just enjoy the things I like to do… without worrying about the kids deleting apps or messing with my stuff.
When I first opened the tablet I was a little nervous, since I am not very tech-savvy, but it was really easy to navigate. I loaded it up with apps that I love and now this tablet is my favorite guilty pleasure, second only to reality TV. (Hellooooo… Teresa on the Real Housewives of NJ reunion… I can’t!)
Intel Tablets can do so many awesome things, but my favorite thing about my Intel tablet is the size! I bring it with me everywhere, I just toss it right in my purse. It fits right into the little neoprene sleeve I used to use for my Kindle. The screen is large enough that I can read everything comfortably, but small enough that it can go anywhere.
So here is how I use my Intel tablet to enjoy some much needed ME time!
Blogger: I love to blog. I love to blog even more while sitting on my couch with a big glass of wine. This tablet makes it so easy for me to hop on blogger and write or edit my posts.
Bloglovin: This is the easiest way for me to catch up with my favorite blogs, and the app version makes it convenient and easy. Everything loads so quickly on this tablet, that I can read and comment on my favorite blogs whenever I can sneak a free moment.
Pinterest: I have a Pinterest obsession. Especially around the holidays… I love getting Christmas decorating inspiration and pinning my favorite fall recipes.
Kindle and Overdrive: I LOVE my Kindle, and now with the Kindle app I can read all my books on this tablet! Overdrive is an app that lets you borrow e-books from the library. Thanks to my tablet I can borrow books that are in the Kindle Format, or in the regular e-book format, since I can read those right off the Overdrive app. This gives me more options when borrowing library books, since the Kindle versions usually have a wait list, while the other format is available more often. I love to read, but since I’ve had Mila it is really hard for me to make time for it. Now that I bring this tablet with me everywhere, I can find little moments to read, which makes me so very happy.
