Marlo Thomas is going Digital?

Do you know Marlo Thomas as the face of St. Jude Hospitals? Well, I remember her as the creator of "Free To Be You and Me" from my childhood. She is so many things... an actress, author, philanthropist and now a digital force!

Join Marlo at the just-launched http://www.marlothomas.com MarloThomas.com in partnership with AOL -- a new site where Marlo will connect with and inspire women, sharing a laugh, and, most importantly, building a community of support so we can all keep dreaming and achieving!

And she wants to hear from you and tell your story - with video series such as
Hero Next Door. Marlo will find and profile amazing women - just like you. Watch the first feature - about Lu Picard of Torrington, Conn. - and then tell Marlo about a fabulous woman you know. Nominate a Hero now by emailing heroes@marlothomas.com!

In addition to launching MarloThomas.com, Marlo's now on social media, too. Follow her Twitter account at @Marlo_Thomas

You can also subscribe to Marlo on YouTube at

When asked why she's going digital, Marlo says the answer is easy. "I want to step out from behind the one-way mirror of television and have a real conversation with women," says Marlo. "I haven't stopped dreaming; you shouldn't either! It's your turn: What should we talk about together?"

This digital effort coincides with the upcoming release of Marlo's newest book, "
