Today is the official launch of the Nonprofit Millennial Blogging Alliance, that includes a cadre of amazing bloggers who blog about the non profit sector. I was asked to join the Alliance by Allison Jones (in photo), a fellow non profit blogger, writer, advocate and entrepreneur. She came up with the idea after reading an article about forming a blogging alliance. She shares:
“In the almost two years that I have been blogging I have learned so much about the nonprofit sector and the challenges that young employees face. This has motivated me to act and to connect with those who share my passion for creating a culture in the sector that values and actively supports young employees.
However, I always wondered how we could include more voices from the next generation in the conversation about the future of the nonprofit sector. Then I came across this article in problogger about forming a blogging alliance. While he talks about it being a secret mainly to benefit bloggers, I saw an opportunity to gather a group of young nonprofit bloggers who can help each other reach wider audiences and collectively bringing important issues about the nonprofit sector to the forefront by actively engaging and sharing each other’s work.”
Without further ado, here’s the list of the alliance members!
