We’re happy to say that Safe and Savvy has been named a winner of a 2010 Top Blog Award.
We’ve been blogging for less than a year. In that time, we’ve talked about quitting Facebook and what to do if you stay. We’ve covered the best methods for backing up your content and how to make sure your web cam isn’t spying on you. And we’ve told you about what happens when you get robbed in the World of Warcraft and how to find out if you have a cyberstalker.
And we always want to hear from you, which leads to…
This week’s question is: What online safety or security question would you like see us blog about? If you can’t think of one, you can just tell us about a Safe and Savvy post that you’ve appreciated.
Just read the rules and post your answer in the comments. This week’s winner will receive an iPod touch 8 GB plus F-Secure Internet Security for your whole family (up to 5 members).
