I’m Your Stella Artois Légére Social Media Neighbour

Guess what?  I have been waiting to share the awesome news with you that I’ve been selected as one of the the Stella Artois Légère Social Media Neighbour’s for the Beach/Leslieville/Danforth area. There will be six sampling teams (wearing 1960s-inspired outfits and riding Stella Artois Légére-branded bicycles and Mini Coopers) who will be handing out complimentary samples throughout the cities neighborhoods from now until July 9.

But complimentary samples of Stella Artois Légére is not all… they’re giving YOU a chance to vote for your favourite neighborhood in Toronto (EAST SIDE) via the Stella Artois’ Facebook page The neighbourhood receiving the most votes gets to host an Ultimate Block Party for 200 people! Voting closes on July 10th, 2011.

If you live in the Beach/Leslieville/Danforth areas you already know that we live in the BEST neighborhood in the city so stay tuned to my blog and twitter for updates on the Stella Artois Légére summer sampling program.  And keep your eyes peeled for the Stella Artois Légère street teams.  Tweet or FB me if you see them!

Also, for all you parents or concerned folks out there — you MUST be 19+ to participate in the sampling — no complimentary beer for minors.  Sorry guys!

So happy to be back in TO for the summer 🙂

SUMMER OF FUN

I Heart Social Media

Today is Social Media Day and I’m going to celebrate by going to the Mashable Meetup at The Madison this evening to hang with some of my favourite tweeps and blog babes.  Casie & Scott are going to be speaking and I’m excited to meet some new people IRL.

I’m in love with social media and I can’t imagine my life without it now.  I’ve made so many new friends and I have to say it’s changed the way I work, think and live.  I know some people don’t really like it, or see the point, but it’s all in the way you use it.  I feel like my blog and my twitter are an extension of my thoughts, a way for me to get the things out that I need to, all the while building up my influence and reach.  It’s helped me in my business – the launch of my agency’s Social Media Division this year was a pretty ground breaking event for me.  I’m the first agent in Canada to represent online personalities and I’m building a strong network of people.

If you’re looking to get involved today you can join us at the Meetup or check out this list of ways to participate from Mashable.

  • Meetup Everywhere Mashable: Sign up to attend an event on the Meetup Everywhere Mashable.
  • Watch the live streams worldwide: We’ll be updating throughout the day.
  • Tweet: Use the #smday hashtag on Twitter. With so many participating, we should be a trending topic on Twitter on June 30. Also, we’ll soon be announcing a prize for those that tweet or post to Facebook.

How do you feel about social media?  Do you Twitter, Facebook, Blog, YouTube?  How has it affected your life?
