Being in the social media/nonprofit fundraising field means always having to educate yourself on fundraising studies or changes in social platforms. You can spend hours trying to figure out how to set up your new facebook profile, testing out a new social media channel, or reading and understanding a 40 page study that was just released on online giving. Doing that plus your job every day can be very overwhelmed and will eventually suck you dry!
I’m thankful that Second Harvest encourages this type of training. It’s an investment in their employees, plus both parties end up winning in this scenario. I’ve listed my go to nonprofit resources below. I hope you get as much out of them as I do. Who do you follow online? Why do you follow them? more →
This will be my third time trying to start a blog. My first blog started out as a music blog that quickly died when I realized I didn’t really know that much about house music. I just really enjoy listening to it.
My second blog had some good posts but then my site got hacked. It’s not pretty when google decides to block your site from browsers. Or when your twitter followers start sending you dm messages about your site. Well, it was good to know that some people were actually interested in what I had to say.
So tonight, instead of working on those wedding Thank You postcards that I was supposed to have sent a month ago, I’m here sitting in our spare room setting up another wordpress blog. Oh wordpress, I’m going to conquer all million of your settings and probably end up changing my theme 5 times before I decide on my final one.
This is my, I’m determined to get this done look. Here’s to my third time at giving this a try.
