It’s a #Verizon Blog Party!!!

Disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Boomer Voices program and have been provided with a device and six months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product. #VZWVoices #Boomer

958It is really hard to believe, but it has been six months since I became a Brand Ambassador for Verizon. Back in June, I traveled to Chicago to learn about some fantastic devices and programs offered by Verizon. I was more than happy to blog and tweet about my new phone, my new FitBit One and other items.

I really fell in love with my Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD – specifically because of the camera and the ease of use of the phone. Then, about a month ago, I was supplied with a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and well, let’s say I am head-over-heels in love with this “phablet.” It is a wonderful phone, and a wee bit smaller than a 7″ tablet, so it makes reading on my Kindle app much easier – no reading glasses needed for me! And let’s just say the camera is amazing, and the stylus pen allows me to use the phone as a note pad. I have scrapbooks and notes set up. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is an amazing piece of technology.


I am so sad that this Brand Ambassador program is drawing to a close. I have met and worked with so many talented #Boomer bloggers. And the staff at ComBlu and Verizon couldn’t have been more supportive or generous if they tried! Truly, a wonderful group of people.

What has really amazed me is how much I have learned in six months! In addition to really learning how a smart phone can enhance and help a blogger’s life, I found myself becoming more interested in how technology can fit into so many aspects of our lives – especially as “Boomers.” There are devices, like “Sure Response” than can assist in the care of aging parents. There are apps for so many areas of our lives: banking, insurance, grocery, health and fitness, shopping – even apps for the NFL and NHL (Go Wings!). I learned how to use Rafflecopter and see the power social media – all in less than a year.

Which brings me to my blog party…

Part of being a Brand Ambassador for this program was to host a few parties. A fellow blogger and I hosted a digital party in October, and now, I am hosting a blog party on my own! Sorry that I don’t have refreshments to serve, but I do have a few “real” gift bags, courtesy of Verizon, for my virtual guests! And, there are three great prizes for three lucky people, whose names will be drawn at random.

  1. I would love to win the tablet or the Mophie powerstation! I have a Mophie charger for my s3 (on Verizon, too) and it works great.

  2. Great prizes being offered by the best provider of wireless communication. I have had Verizon for years and they are the best – even during the “great blackout” when they were the only ones to keep their towers operational in our area. I would love to win any one of the great prizes shown. The Ellipsis is intriguing, the Mophie would help out my when power gets low on my Motorola Droid Maxx and the Mini Jam Box is really cool.

  3. I think just about everyone in my family is a Verizon user…and a tech nut, so it’s hard to keep up with the latest and greatest technology. But, we sure try!!

  4. I’ve been wanting a cell phone but have not made the leap yet. IDK what to buy or what service! This is a really fun giveaway, hope I win!

    1. Heidi, Verizon has several great packages. You may want to start out with a “pay as you go” phone until you can navigate around. I really like Verizon’s service – I think you would be happy with them! 🙂

  5. I would be blessed to win any of these wonderful prizes! I had been with a different carrier for over ten years and I ported my cell service to Verizon about a month ago. I am super glad that I did! The Verizon network is far superior to any of the others!

  6. I would love the Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation™ so many times I am out somewhere and my phone gets low on battery. Also we use Verizon’s HomeFusion as we live in an area that our only other option is satellite and well that didn’t work for us as I work online. Thank you for the giveaway!

  7. I’d love the Ellipsis tablet. I’m a single mom on a very tight budget and I own my own business so this device would make my life a whole heck of a lot easier. lol 😉

  8. Found your blog through this giveaway, so glad I did! congrats on being a Verizon ambassador, quite the accomplishment!

    I’d love to win the Verizon Ellipsis tablet for my dad for Christmas, he uses his little phone and I’d love to surprise him with something more..readable haha! lovely giveaway, looking forward to more posts!

  10. Those are all awesome products! Jawbone makes some wonderful sounding products, the tablet looks great, and the power station would be really useful to keep you running remote all day!

  11. I would be just grateful for anything. My son and three grand children would just love to win something. Thank You for giving us the chance. Happy Holidays!

  12. How wonderful! Thanks for the opportunity! I think any of these items could fit into our lives, especially the jambox! Love to have music playing throughout the day:)

  13. I would like the tablet please..I take the bus and the train to get to work and this would make my trip time go by quickly..thanks for this contest and HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!

  14. I’d love to win all of these products, particularly the Jawbone and the Mophie charger.. but who knows, maybe if I won the Ellipsis I’d switch back to Verizon

  15. Wow, what great prizes! I would be happy to win any of the three but my favorite would be the Verizon Ellipsis ™ 7 because I have to keep my legs elevated and this would be great for the recliner. Thank you for this awesome giveaway.

  16. These are all awesome prizes! I would love to win the Verizon Ellipsis 7. We have been talking about getting a tablet and this one looks amazing! I love the service we get from Verizon.

  17. Wow what a fantastic giveaway! I would love to win any of these, although I think the tablet is my favorite if I had to pick *fingers crossed*

  18. I would love to win any one of these great gifts.. I could give it to my husband for Christmas since we don’t have money to buy Christmas this year.

  19. I’ve been considering switching companies for a while…. Verizon is pretty much the only company that I could switch to that has service where I live.

  20. Great giveaway! I think I’d like to win the tablet the most, because I don’t have one and it’d be something that would really help me out in terms of being able to blog from anywhere. My Nook tablet is nice, but it just doesn’t give me the freedom the Verizon tablet would! The charger is cool too, because I could use my phone longer at things like events, and it would be great for travel (I’d even loan it to hubby when he travels). The Mini Jambox is awesome as well, and I’d give that to my hubby as a gift… he’s been wanting one of those since we heard a friend’s at the beach over the summer!

    1. it’s hard to choose which would be “my favorite” too! I think the tablet would be great as well. You can even check your Verizon messages on it!

  21. I would just like to say thank you so much for holding this awesome giveaway! (Oh, and I’ve been a happy Verizon customer for about 3 years now!) 🙂 Thank you!

  22. I would love to win any one of these awesome prizes! What a great Christmas present that would make 🙂 I’m a techie at <3 and any one of these prizes is right up my alley! Plus Verizon ROCKS!!! End of story 🙂

  23. Still Blonde after all these Years sent me I think the Jawbone and Verizon Ellipsis 7 my grandson would flip over. Amazing products thanks for the chance.I like them all really.

  24. Well here is how lame I am. I have had Verizon for years and I did not know they made a tablet and that powerstation in the bomb! It must be that rock I am living under. Thanks for the giveaway. I come from the Blonde… any friend of the Blonde is a friend of mine. 🙂

  25. I would love to have any of these but the tablet would be great or the powerstation. Thank you for the chance – Good Luck to ALL! and Thank you to Still Blonde After All The Years referring us to you!

  26. i love the powerstation……tablet is really great too.
    Still Blonde after all these Years sent me over here.
    thank you for the chance.

  27. Just got a hot tip from Still Blonde After All these Years.
    Hopped over to check out your site and write up on Verizon.
    I too have been a dedicated Verizon subscriber for years and have been extremely happy with the service provided. Would love to try out some of the above accessories…to help my Electronic world sparkle! Have really been praying about starting a blog in 2014.
    Who knows I may get an extra nudge from above.

    1. Start a blog! I always encourage people to write! Read some of my posts…Many were “nudges from Above.” Tell Still Blonde “thanks” from me. God bless!

  28. I would LOVE to win! Still Blonde After all These Years sent me here! If I won, they would have a new user of their product! Would also have to teach me how to use….lol. Thanks for the chance to win!

  29. What an amazing giveaway. I would be thrilled to win the Ellipses. I have never had a smart phone or a tablet..I have a laptop that is ready to be put out to pasture and a dumb phone that doesn’t do a whole lot…it does take pics…really really crappy ones lol. Thanks for the opportunity. Best of luck everyone. I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season and a Merry Christmas.
