How This Blog Works
I began Carolyn’s Nonprofit Blog in 2011 after moving from Corpus Christi to San Antonio, Texas after ten years of productive work across South Texas. During that time, I I began reviewing my lifetime of professional nonprofit work and writing down and sharing my experiences and advice. The encouragement to blog came from NTEN: Nonprofit Technology Network, and during that time, I also began learning how to use social media platforms in earnest. That proved to be a smart investment!
There are no other authors nor guest authors on Carolyn’s Nonprofit Blog. I receive fairly regular requests to write articles for the blog, but there are no other authors at this time. Having said that, I do reference discussions by others I believe might be helpful. I also believe in giving credit where credit is due. But link- and article-sharing does not necessarily indicate endorsement.
- In-depth “primary” articles and portfolios accessible from the main menu bar at the top of the page.
- Occasional posts on more narrowly-focused and recent topics, which you will find by looking in the margin under, “Carolyn’s Posts.” Included is a searchable archive of articles going back to 2013. When some of my “posts” relate well to articles in the main menu, I have begun adding post links there as well.
- See the special sections in the drop down menu, “A Brief Account,” “Asking,” “Baby Boomers,” “Capital Campaigns,” “Connecting With Diverse Communities” and more. when you click on the primary article, others on that general topic appear at right.

Keep in Mind
Because each nonprofit organization is unique – as is each nonprofit professional – you should tailor your activities accordingly. I stand by the information I convey. But you must always consider the context in which you are operating before applying new concepts.
