About Calm, Cool & Connected:
The Calm, Cool & Connected blog launched in November 2008 and is authored by seven moms and dads – all of which are AT&T employees. The blog is a place for parents to connect and discuss the ways they use technology to keep their families “calm, cool and connected”- something we can all relate to! It’s also a great place to learn about select AT&T products and services from a parent’s perspective. As an added bonus, the blog features monthly giveaways/contests for its readers. The bloggers are volunteer writers. They are not compensated for their contributions. In the future, AT&T hopes to add to their list of talented authors and also feature guest bloggers (non-AT&T employees) on a regular basis.
What’s new at Calm, Cool & Connected? The blog is currently featuring two guest bloggers who are AT&T employee moms-to-be chronicling their experience using a text service, text4baby.
Text4baby is a free mobile information service designed to promote maternal and child health. An educational program of the National Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition (HMHB), text4baby provides pregnant women and new moms with information they need to take care of their health and give their babies the best possible start in life. Women who sign up for the service by texting BABY (or BEBE for Spanish) to 511411 will receive free SMS text messages each week, timed to their due date or baby’s date of birth.
