Holly Helpful Hints: BONUS ROUND! How To Share Your Personal Blogs

Hey Community! In this special bonus edition of Holly's Helpful Hints, I'm turning my keyboard and my awesome headline photo over to our newest Community Manager, Jon, to share a cool opportunity for any of you who might happen to have professional blogs.

So, with that, here's your note from Jon:

Hello Blackbaud Commiunity! 

I'm your new community manager, Jon.  As someone who's just moved from Burbank, CA back to Austin,TX, I find myself asking people for advice on what I need to experience in this great city.  Which got us in the community thinking.... how many of you all have your own blogs where you write about best practices in your profession (e.g. fundraising, online marketing, data management, etc.)?  We know that we have a community full of experts out there and would love to be able to help get your blog(s) more visibility as well!

If you have a professional blog, share a link to it in the comments below.

And as a fun bonus challenge, go check out your fellow community members' blogs and then report back in the comments some cool tips or tricks that you learned.

I look forward to working with and learning from all of you,

Question based on one of Tom Klimchak's blogs - Whose organization has a planned giving/legacy society? How do you recognize them? What criteria do you use for "membership?" Do you have annual meetings, and, if so, what is the purpose of your gathering those individuals together? Do you offer a speaker or is it more of a social gathering?

The Sisters of Charity Sister Spotlight was an awesome feature using YouTube. It wasn't too long and really seemed to bring focus on what each Sister was passionate about. Well done and enjoyable spotlights, nice work!
