In the News, Social Media

Sheila Scarborough and I are honored to be among the five Social Media Mavens profiled in the current issue of Austin Woman magazine, a free monthly publication distributed in over 800 locations across the greater Austin area. With SXSW in town this month, the magazine’s cover story is about Austin music legend Marcia Ball, with a special section on social media.

I think I’m even more excited that another one of the mavens, Lisa Goddard, attended the first-ever workshop we conducted back in June of last year-just a few days after CEO David Davenport kicked off a blog for the Capital Area Food Bank, which Lisa serves as advocacy and online marketing director. Since then Lisa and the food bank team have not just gotten the blog off the ground, they have successfully integrated social media into a number of their fund-raising and awareness efforts, and even have 11 employees on Twitter.

    VERY COOL, Connie!

    (& very deserved.)

    I’d not seen the issue yet!

    Congratulations!! Well deserved. :-)

  3. Connie Reece Says:

    Carla and Aruni — thanks, ladies. It was an honor to be featured in the magazine’s special section. It’s noteworthy to me that a general-interest women’s magazine is aware enough of social media to devote 11 pages to the subject.

    I finally had a chance to read the profiles of Sheila and yourself. Congratulations to both of you!
