Beth Kanter is an expert on social media for non-profits and I strongly recommend perusing her blog for great information. She is also on Face Book, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, to name a few!
Interesting blog post about the importance of harnessing the storytelling power of social media with strategy. Doing so is especially important for non-profits – social media is a great opportunity to tell success stories and personalize your non-profit mission.

Welcome! I am a capacity building and writing consultant based near Portland, OR. My goal for 2013 is to transition away from grant writing and more towards web-based content development, social media, and research. My LinkedIn profile has more details on my background. I also have a now-dormant blog on parenting children with special needs, A Different Nest. You can find my posts here.
A new year, a new blog, created to organize and and share information on how social media can and does help non-profits be more efficient, robust and successful. I learn best by doing, so at the risk of being “meta” – I am learning more about social media by doing more social media.
