New Website!

I am so excited the launch of my new website! Check it out:  www.alicialegg.com. The design was created by my beautiful friends, Liviu and Aline

 

Here you can see Aline actually hand drawing the art for the site.  Isn’t that amazing?   

God bless Liviu for his endless patience and his amazing website expertise.   I am just so grateful to them both, because I love what they did for me.

A warm thank you goes out to Joan Hefler for her beautiful pictures as well.

Now I will officially be blogging from this site.  If you are receiving this message from an e-mailed blog subscription, it will be your last unless you subscribe to my new blog site.  I know you couldn’t live a full and happy life without my periodic posts, so here is the link  to subscribe to the new blog so can continue to receive your updates when I post without interruption. 

Important:  After you sign up for the blog subscription, you will have to respond to the e-mail that FeedBurner sends you to validate that subscription.

Thank you to all of my dedicated followers who have followed me for almost a year now.  I can’t believe a year has passed already.  My new semester has begun.  Here in the Northeast, we have been just pounded by an obnoxious amount of snow and already school has been cancelled twice and it just started.  Yet already there are so many things I wish to share with you, about school and the ScareMeNots. 

I am looking forward to sharing a great year with each of you in 2011.

Social Media – Love it? Hate it? Inquiring minds want to know

This is my first “official” blog post for my social media class. I have only attended one class so far. My professor is the same one who taught my Crisis Communications class I took last semester and I recognize many of my classmates from last semester.It is nice to have so much familiarity at the beginning of the semester.

In this class we are going to be learning about the applicability of social media in a corporate setting. We will be examining the use of social media like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn (among so many others) and how corporations can use these new mediums as a vehicle to reach their customers and employees. We live in a whole new world now and the “old school” days of typed memos and meetings really have taken an entirely new meaning. Corporations hire consultants that work from home, Skype in to work and host meetings virtually in all sorts of ways. Skype is one of the video tools that a person can use to have a virtual conversation on screen with one another via a computer. I only know this because Oprah uses it a lot.

All of the content in this class really fits me like a glove. I am a Facebook addict. It seems that I am concerned more these days about the status updates than I really care to admit. I know I am not alone. As a new blogger I find myself opening Twitter accounts, setting up RSS feeds (that means whatever I post on my blog automatically posts to twitter, facebook and LinkedIn in a vain attempt to make me feel like someone is actually reading these things) and doing all sorts of things that were foreign to me just a year ago.

So I guess the big question here how does Corporate USA use these tools for their own gain? How are each of us as their consumers and employees affected by them? Is it good or bad?

I really look forward to your opinions as we go along – so please don’t be shy.
