Moonyeen

Hi, there –

Big fan of the site! I’m wondering if you have any information on the name “Moonyeen?” It was my grandmother’s middle name but I have no idea where it comes from or what it means.

Send those baby pics more simply

Having a new baby introduces a lot of complications — including sending photos of your infant to all your friends and relatives, on all the various services they might be using.

A new service named KidPost aims to simplify that for you, by consolidating all the shots on all the sites, and sending them in one email message to those people such as your grandparents who might not be the most tech-savvy…

You can still share photos wherever you like — just add the hashtag “#kidpost” and those pictures are later consolidated into a daily message. Read More
