Content Curation: Hey, I think I am attempting that!

Beth Kanter presented a slide show at a recent non-profit conference, with a title I just love:  Mindful or Mind Full Social Media, with tips for mindfull content curation…I can already see how burn out can creep in!

Slate also published a useful article on how limiting commitments can be your best new years resolution: Economists on How to Make Better New Year’s Resolutions 

One of my goals for this blog is to be a spot where I can keep track of all the articles, webinars, blogs about  social media, particularly for non-profits.  It has been a challenge in the past for me to keep track of web-based content so I am giving this a whirl.


The tour starts here

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.
