In Susan J. Ellis’ September Hot Topic Addressing Volunteerism Issues in the Blogosphere http://www.energizeinc.com/ she speaks of all of the wonderful information available on the blogosphere and explains the best way of utilizing this media via twitter and RSS feeds without getting information overload. The internet has opened up opportunities to communicate on a global level. We now have access to a plethora of information, all at our fingertips. We can also connect and have discussions with volunteer management colleagues on the other side of the world.
I started a blog over a year ago on matters related to parenting teenagers. For me this was a sort of therapy and hopefully was of assistance to other parents also going through the challenges of dealing with wayward teenagers. With the experience gained from designing a blog, writing posts, placing comments and following stats I felt that I was ready to start another blog; this time on matters relating to volunteer management http://wendy-moore.blogspot.com/. The purpose of this blog was to support, encourage and inspire people in the field of volunteer management, through sharing information and ideas to take our sector and boldly go where no one has gone before.
