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.

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

In regards to yesterday’s blog entry…I want to stress that my idea about using the “chatterbots” to work with people who have disabilities was only a thought on my part, and does not represent the opinions of GCSS as a whole.

I admit that I’m not an expert on autism, and although I’ve met quite a few individuals with varying forms of the illness, this does not mean that I have the training to develop a computer program for them.

How Criminal Minds Relates to Disability Support…

As I was pondering various professional blogs this morning, wondering what to write myself, the show Criminal Minds, on CBS, somehow came to mind…

Obviously, our organization isn’t trying to catch criminals or rescue crime victims. However…

Each of our programs, and the people who work in those departments, have different areas of expertise upon which we focus our efforts. Continue reading

Selling It…

I want to start off by once again thanking all the great social media experts that we’ve been networking with recently. It makes me very happy to know that we’re reaching out to others.

For instance, when I think of MySpace, for example, I don’t think we fit in there. We’re not a band; we’re not a coffee shop; and we’re not a tattoo parlor.

As Gini Dietrich, our new “business buddy,” so to speak, at Arment Dietrich, said in response to another blog entry, nonprofit promotions are not so different from advertising for other organizations…

A Dress Code?? Oh, Right.

In regards to the company-wide e-mail sent out by Human Resources Director Valerie Henderson about dress code, I thought it worth addressing in the blog.

A few years ago, I also worked in a position similar to the one I have with GCSS…

I don’t mean to be a hypocrite, because there have been a few days when I’ve come in looking disheveled, and although I’m still technically an extern, I would never want to present GCSS in a negative light.
