The internet has revolutionized the opportunities to communicate, connect, and to pitch your skills or services to others. To this end, most of us have turned to Facebook, Twitter, or other means to tell our stories.
For me, I try to use these medians to promote ideas and thoughts related to community engagement, building social capital, and inclusion of all people into our circles. This, of course, is in line with my work, passion, and world view. Quite simply I believe we are better together and an inclusive community is one that is more vibrant, healthier, and happier.
To this end, most of my Facebook posts, and Tweets are toward this goal. Further, the launching of my website, and this blog has helped me continue to share ideas and strategies on ways we can all be more inclusive and engaged in our communities. And this gets me to the point of this blog today.
When I decided to set up a website, like most of my friends who have done this, I was overwhelmed on where, and how to start. This is where my daughter, Gianna (www.giannarotunno.com), came in to save the day. Gianna is a talented designer, artist, and educator, not to mention, my favorite daughter. She simplified the process, set up the pages, designed my logo, selected colors and fonts, and got me up and running quickly, inexpensively, and with a cool, professional look. Further, she manages my site, uploads documents, and keeps my schedule up to date. All of this allows me to focus on what I like to do, and am good at. And this has increased the impact of my message and increased opportunity for me to tell the story of social capital.
So, take a look at my site. If you like what you see, and are thinking about developing your own website, or re-doing yours, drop Gianna a note at her website listed above. She would be happy to show you how she can make your online appearance dynamic, current, and reflective of who you are and what you do.
