I got an email from someone interested in the One Post Challenge today:
I’ve been managing a listserv that addresses topics in philanthropy for quite some time now and many of my recipients have been encouraging me to start my own blog. My listserv is a weekly e-mail where I normally address three to four topics in philanthropy and request feedback. The entire process has been very rewarding and I expect running a blog has the same potential… Thanks for your leadership on pushing philanthropy discussion in the blogosphere.
I’m convinced that there is a massive amount of wisdom about philanthropy that exists in silos. The expanding blog conversation offers an opportunity for the walls around these silos to be broken and the discussions from foundation conferences to mix with roundtables about Hacking Philanthropy and then being remixed into something real and valuable that truly transforms philanthropy. I hope you’ll submit an entry to the One Post Challenge.
After a couple conversations I’ve had, I’ll be tweaking the framework of the Challenge. If you have any input let me know. I look forward to seeing everyone’s entries.
I’ve posted the November Giving Carnival post with a reference to your One Post Challenge.
This month’s topic is: “What business practices should nonprofits adopt to maximize their resources?”
The deadline is Monday, November 26th, but I will send you a reminder by before the deadline.
I am hoping that this month we can make a special effort to engage new bloggers and off-line professionals, so please spread the word.
(I don’t know if your comments are HTML enabled, so I am putting the links at the bottom.)
