The Nonprofit Blog Exchange has now been around for 10 years! It started off as virtual events connecting nonprofit bloggers with each other and a place to see links to nonprofit blogs. Now it is known as a source for news in nonprofit technology with the roundups.
To celebrate 10 years, I will be making some changes to continue the success of this blog/project.
Here are some of the changes that will be made:
1) I am officially announcing that the virtual events are now over due to the lack of interest. Social media has now allowed bloggers to connect with each other better and there is no need for this.
2) The Nonprofit Blog Exchange will be the place to see links to nonprofit blogs. You don’t need to sign-up to be listed anymore. I will be looking for blogs to add to the list. There will still be a form though to add your nonprofit blog if it is not linked yet. The same rules will still be applied for me to add the blog to the list. If you are currently listed, it will be noted on the list that you were part of the original list.
3) Roundups will no longer include blogs for nonprofit organizations. According to my stats, it seems like my readers would rather read links to blog entries about nonprofits. The end of year roundups will still include organizations as those are always interesting to read.
4) One of my goals of the exchange was to increase awareness of nonprofit organization blogs. This goal has not been reached yet. Each month I will pick a theme and write a post that links to blogs for nonprofit organizations.
5) I will begin putting together reports about nonprofit blogging. I already mentioned about the report about nonprofit organization blogs in my last post. There will be 2 reports related to blogs for organizations. The first one will be from a reader perspective and the second will be from organizations filling out information. The other report will be about blogs about nonprofits – what topics people write about related to nonprofits, how they are promoting blog, and other related info.
6) I will begin putting together a summary of nptech yearly trends based on blog entries linked in the roundups about nonprofits. I have already begun looking at my data and it is very interesting to see how nptech has changed throughout the years. Analysis of this data for the first ten years (or whenever it was I started collecting this data) will be posted in early 2016. Then each year I will posting this information.
7) I will be adding a section with links to blog entries about topics in nptech.
More information will be posted as I add these new ideas.
