Last year was the first year that the Council on Foundations issued press credentials to bloggers. I just read through my posts from that experience. To recap what we learned about philanthropy and blogging:

On a personal note, the Gaylord resort where the conference is being held is having a problem with their reservation system. I was sent to 5 (!) rooms which either had not been made up or which actually had people staying in them before I was given a good room tonight. I’ve already had 3 people come to the door after being told that my room was theirs (yes their room keys opened the door to my room). So let’s just say that if any of my blog posts are a bit irritable, you’ll have to cut me some slack!
