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

One of the difficulties we’ve had at Georgia Community Support and Solutions is reaching a wider “audience.” Whether it’s to promote one of our events, to let people know about our services, or to simply network with other organizations, we’re still experimenting with the best methods as to how to do that.

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.

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

Golden Goals: Achievement Collage

I don’t know if “collage” is the proper word, but it’s the best I could come up with. In the ongoing effort to think of a design theme for the Golden Goals Awards programs, I considered the idea of taking photos that would represent different types of achievements. Continue reading

The Poetry of Work is…Image, Image, Image!

Once again, I’ve borrowed my title from an important person in my life, namely a college screenwriting professor.

My fiancee recently sent me a link from Yahoo! HotJobs entitled What Your Workspace Says About You, and I thought it worth sharing here.

It makes a number of excellent points about what conclusions people might draw from the image of your workspace.

I once visited the office of CosmoCom, Inc., whose “mission is to optimize communication between organizations and their customers.” Continue reading

The Recruitables

As of today, our new Facebook Cause, Creating Opportunities for Developmentally Disabled People, has 4 members and growing.
