Well about an hour ago, I was on the phone with someone from a large foundation’s communications department who wanted my advice on the pros and cons of them starting a blog. At just about the same time, Google.org was writing the first post for their new blog. If there is any foundation that should know how to best utilize a blog to further their mission it’s Google. After all, Google the company owns Blogger.
I told the foundation communications employee that the Council on Foundation’s decision to invite bloggers to their conference and the Chronicle on Philanthropy’s launch of Give & Take were important markers in the development of philanthropy blogging. Today we just got another one.
And yes, I’ve added the Google.org blog to my daily read.
