Comcast #InternetEssentials in Action

Disclosure: This post is in partnership with Comcast; all opinions expressed are my own.



With the back-to-school season underway, it’s easy to take for granted how widespread internet access appears to be, but with the recent expansion of Comcast’s Internet Essentials initiative I’ve learned that the digital divide is very real. Comcast is doubling the number of eligible households to now include Federal benefits such as Medicaid, SNAP and SSI for Internet Essentials in its national footprint to help close the gap of 25% of U.S. households currently without home internet service. And, in case you haven’t heard of it before, Internet Essentials provides free digital literacy training, Internet service for $9.95 per month and the opportunity to buy a laptop for less than $150.

Happy 9th Birthday, Nia!


As I type this, Nia is just a couple hours shy of officially turning 9. She is quite serious lately and has specifically requested no birthday party this year. I knew there was a shift when for the first time last year she decided to have a birthday party at the house. It turned out that it rained for the first time ever on her party day, so it was perfect!

Join Me in Brooklyn this Saturday, August 10



If there's anything I've continued to hold steadfast over the last few years, it's the importance of moving online to offline. Especially given the state of affairs, violence and despair I'm honored to be participating in this weekend's My Sister's Keyp'her Kickback with Power in Pink. 

This FREE event will bring women together in Prospect Park for a time of reflection, conversation and BYO-picnic. 

There is still space available to RSVP here

I'm looking forward to this time together. 

We need it.

Kicking Off Summer at XFinity's Day of Awesome

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post on behalf of Comcast. All opinions expressed are my own.



Today officially marks one week down of summer and last weekend I kicked off the season at XFinity's Day of Awesome. We've been an XFinity household for years, and I'm always amazed at their latest updates that help my family manage technology and stay safe. At their new store at Legacy Place, associate Laura took me through a 45 minute overview and of course had plenty of coffee and snacks.

Here's what I was most excited to learn about at Day of Awesome...
