no. 51 – The Upparent Episode

 

Word of mouth has always been one of the ways parents get recommendations on things to do with kids. Upparent.com makes finding these recommendations easier than ever before.

Intended as a way for users to browse parenting-related content and recommendations, Upparent.com is quickly becoming a go-to resource for parents who want to spend less time researching and more time enjoying activities with their kids.

In this episode I interview Upparent co-founder Alexandra Fung as we discuss:

  • Which markets Upparent currently provides market-specific content for
  • What types of information parents can find on Upparent, including topics that range from the best sippy cups for kids to races the entire family can run
  • How content on the site is generated, curated and monitored for quality control
  • Why the topic of volunteering as a family is popular on the site and with its founders

I close out this final 2018 episode with a brief discussion about the Cool Stuff page, where I include my choices for favorite and recommended products, including a recommendation of my favorite natural deodorant by LaVanila (<- affiliate link). I also share a follow up on LaVanila’s underarm detox mask as shared with me by their team, in case listeners are looking for a way to transition from traditional deodorant to a natural one.

Thanks to every listener who has helped to make 2018 an amazing year for me and this podcast! I look forward to bringing you all new episodes in January of 2019. ~Regan
