Today I’m headed to Los Angeles for the very first time! I’m excited to be speaking at V3Con Digital Media Conference. I’m honored to be speaking with my fellow panelists about how can parents tackle digital issues without saying “In my day….” You can follow our session “Help! My Kid Is on Snapchat”: Online Issues Facing Parents and Families this Saturday at 1PM on Twitter with the hashtag #V3fams. You can also follow the panelists on Twitter:

Ever since I learned of V3Con (which evolved from Banana Conferences) as an event for fellow Asian American Pacific Islander journalists, bloggers, and other digital content produces, I knew I wanted to go. I’m hoping I don’t geek out when I meet the AAPI bloggers I’ve been following for a long time. The schedule is jammed packed with sessions about activist blogging, success as a woman in social media, Asian visibility in Hollywood, and lots more.
Plus, the conference will be at the Japanese American National Museum right in Little Tokyo. There’s event time in the schedule for us to walk the museum. I’m planning on taking lots of photos on my new Samsung NX1100 camera. It’s my first fancy pants camera! Not only did I buy myself a new camera with a detachable lens, I also am a proud owner of a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. You know how much I love my Android devices.
With my new mobile device purchase, I’m glad to be working with Protect Your Bubble, who is my travel sponsor for V3Con. Protect Your Bubble offers insurance for your new gadget, especially mobile devices like your smartphone and my new tablet! I’m still learning more about Protect Your Bubble, but I like the fact that if something happens to my device, I can get a replacement the very next day. How awesome is that, especially if you’re traveling? I wouldn’t want to be stranded in Los Angeles without my smartphone. Check out their video to see what Protect Your Bubble offers:
Protect Your Bubble even insures cracked screens, which would have been handy when my old laptop screen met its sad, sad death several months ago. I’m testing out their service and will return in a couple of weeks with more info. I’ll also have a cool giveaway from them. In the meantime, learn more about Protect Your Bubble on their Facebook page or follow them on Twitter.
I’m looking for the five hour flight each way. I have a stack of books packed plus some tv shows on my tablet to catch up on for some quality me time. My trip to L.A. will be short but sweet.
I’d love to hear more about your devices. Have you every lost a cell phone or cracked your tablet? How did you deal with it? If you have any questions about Protect Your Bubble, please leave them in the comments and I’ll find the answer for you!
