  • Community Happenings: December 12
    A conversation overheard at my house today:   “Remind me not to do so many holiday activities next year.” “Sure. It’s not like that stops you any other year. You’re a force to be reckoned with when you want to do something. ”   That stuck with me as I hauled my potluck contributions into the office today – a force to be reckoned with . It made me stand taller ... more

  • Community Happenings: November 7 2017
    Hello Community!   Last weekend I made my first fall wreath and a turkey luminary. As I shopped, I couldn’t find a lot of fall items. I checked the date on my phone because all I could see was red, green, white, and a certain large man who shimmies down chimneys.   It dawned on me that we are always in a hurry to get to the next big thing.

  • Holly's Helpful Hints: How To Have Some Fun During BBCON Week
    The week before bbcon is an interesting time to be in the Blackbaud offices. There's an energy around bbcon that is almost indescribable. We've spent a lot of time and virtual ink talking about all of the learning opportunities offered at bbcon. If you need a reminder, you can find them here and here and here and even here . This week, I'd like to focus on another aspect of bbcon - the fun! And, just so the Community members who aren't attending bbcon (or who attended one of our international conferences instead) don't feel left out, I'm going to talk about things you can do online as well as on the ground at the event. more
