Social Media for Special Needs and Disabilities

BREAKING NEWS!

I’m adding a specialty in special needs and disabilities (challenges of all kinds) in my social media business as a new service from here forward. I do believe that there is a lack of representation for persons with disabilities and special needs online via social media, and at conferences as well. This new addition to my services brings in my past experience as a professional Music Therapist and Counsellor.

I’m really excited about this newly added service which applies to only to social media marketing, education, training, workshops and speaking engagements.

I’ll write up another blog post which details my work with persons with disabilities, and add a new page to this website as well. These new social media services will include training on social media marketing tools and technology, training on the use of social media for both clients and caregivers as well as education, workshops and speaking engagements.

Silence is More Powerful than Noise Online

“Silence is more powerful than noise online.”
— Brenda Johima

This could simply read “silence is more powerful than noise.” Period.

Online, this means, only post, write, Tweet, Facebook, blog when you feel, when you want, when you have value to add, and something that has emotional impact and/or an opportunity for learning. Having said this, there still are no “rules” on when you must post, despite what “experts” may tell you. It’s simply my take on things.

People shut out noise. They listen, we listen … when wisdom and smarts jump out from within the silence online … and even more so, if you’ve opened hearts at the same time.

What are you adding online? Heart, smarts, value, love, learning, meaning and connection?

Or … noise 😉 ?

iPhone Photography (iPhoneography) Workshop in Prince George B.C.

I’ll be in the Northern Interior of B.C., in Prince George this fall (2012) for two workshops, at the Two Rivers Gallery.

In the workshop below, I’ll cover the basics of iPhone photography (iPhoneography) and mobile photography for artists and business owners. It’s intended to be an introductory workshop but anyone at any level of ability is welcome to attend 🙂

This session will be hands-on so please bring your choice of an iPhone or any mobile phone that has the ability to connect WIFI or 3G. There will be no boring PowerPoint in this session. You’ll be active, interactive, learning and busy. The  majority of the presentation will focus on iPhone photography and apps available for iPhone cameras, however, I’ve had people attend this session with almost any cell phone camera (or no mobile phone at all) and still received benefit, as we also cover the very basics of fine art and design principles as it applies to improving your photography skills for either personal use or for mobile phone marketing online. Everyone is welcome!

Here is their write up below. Please contact the gallery directly and visit the Two Rivers Gallery website as they are taking care of all payments and registrations for me. Thank you!
