We have a not so pleasant name for a friend who is all about her hotel points...but at least going after these points makes me feel like I'm adding to my professional network...right?!?!?

That's the idea, Joan! Unlike hotel points, you don't redeem community points for anything. It's all about establishing yourselves as experts in the space!

Thanks, Holly! I'm new to the Blackbaud community and to fundraising. This post was helpful as I try to figure out how to learn and grow in this new world. Being a part of the Blackbaud community will certainly help!

Thank you for this Holly. It is most helpful and import to keep us all continuing to connect and professionally network within the community.

Thanks, Holly! Do you have a page or post that talks about guidelines for writing and submitting a blog post?

Not yet, Jennifer! But that's an awesome idea! Look for a post about blogging in the next couple of weeks.

Is it just me or does it seem odd that you get more points for replying to someone else's post than you do for starting a new discussion? Just wondering.
