Linking things up – January edition

Jan 31, 2011 by

Between my Google Reader, Twitter and Facebook recommendations, I get to read all kinds of amazing content every month. Since I love to share the love, here are some links for you to check out:

  • A Strategic Nonprofit Reorganization Plan – This amazing and hilarious piece was published in the Nonprofit Quarterly a few weeks ago and got tons of play on Twitter and Facebook but I had to share it yet again. It is the perfect culmination and expression of nonprofit frustration in the face of ridiculous foundation expectations. It’s long, but you should just go read it. Now.

  • 5 Tips for Blogging in the Post RSS Era – While I don’t know if I fully agree that RSS is dying, I do agree with Geoff Livingston’s excellent blogging suggestions and tips. We all need a reminder about what makes a good blog and how to keep readers coming back for me.
  • 5 Lessons I Learned From Bad Managers – This great post from Nikita Mitchell has excellent tips for what to do when dealing with bad managers. It’s a fate too many of us suffer, though I hope you can avoid becoming one of those bad managers yourself.
  • Freedom is Priceless, But It’s Not Free – My friend Rosetta Thurman has been blogging at Happy Black Woman for the last year or so and she still always manages to share the most amazing tips, thoughts and revelations possible. This particular post is a mediation on the work it takes to actually be free and achieve your dreams. As someone who has owned her own business before and is still working to make her dreams come true, I can certainly identify with the loneliness and ‘nose-to-the-grindstone’ mindset that Rosetta explains. But if you want to achieve your dreams, it takes work and Rosetta can help show you how to get there.
  • Three reasons why young nonprofit professionals should be mentors – This wonderful blog post by Allison Jones is right on the money about the importance of young professionals helping those even younger than themselves to succeed. If you’re still not convinced, cruise on over to Allison’s blog and check out the reasons why.
