Objection, Your Honor! Relevance? (A Reflection on the Blog and Social Media)

As you can see by the picture above, there are some out there who are cynical about blogging in general. While I’m not necessarily one of these people, I do see their point in some instances.

Recently, someone in our organization noted that a few of the blog entries I’d written seemed a bit “off topic.” While the critique wasn’t highly specific… Continue reading

What’s a Hoot? HootSuite, of Course!

Back in June, we signed up for HootSuite, another great social networking tool that I feel we haven’t used to its greatest potential.

If you’re unfamiliar, allow me to explain: HootSuite gives you the opportunity to integrate all of your various social networks (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, etc.), and check out RSS feeds from your friends on each. It’s very similar to TweetDeck (designed by Twitter), in which you can see, in a simple interface, whom you follow, who’s following you, and all the latest tweets your friends have made.

Why Are People Afraid of Clowns? They Don’t Look Under the Make-Up!

A topic I frequently joke about among friends is clowns, in particular “evil clowns.” I don’t remember as to why this has become a running gag among my group of friends, but regardless, I’m aware that many people are afraid of clowns. Continue reading

How Jazz & Poetry Can Enhance Your Nonprofit

When love beckons to you, follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.

I feel that Georgia Community Support and Solutions’ ideals, ultimately, are based in love. Continue reading

This is a Job for…Danger Woman!

Someone I know personally in the “disabled” community, who is nevertheless high-functioning, sometimes refers to herself as Danger Woman. I’ll decline to mention her real name here out of confidentiality, but if you search for “Danger Woman” on Google or any major search engine, chances are many results will appear. Continue reading

No Twitter?! Heaven Forbid!

Earlier this morning, I had been using our list of Twitter followers to compile a spreadsheet of autism/disability support organizations in Georgia.

While in the process, a thought occurred to me: how much traffic is Twitter actually bringing us? Continue reading
