Nonprofits Live: DIY Blogging




On Wednesday, March 21 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific time, join TechSoup for another dynamic Nonprofits Live (#NPLive) interactive event. This time, we'll be talking about DIY Blogging  — from best practices, tips, and tools to help you make informed decisions about how to develop your digital footprint by DIY Blogging.


Our featured guests include:

Jody Dilday, executive director of Single Parent Scholarship Fund of Northwest Arkansas, has spent her career raising awareness and support for nonprofit organizations. Jody was introduced to blogging while on assignment with the public affairs team assigned to the Houston Astrodome during the American Red Cross disaster relief efforts following Hurricane Katrina. She returned home and started a “mommy blog” – purely as a hobby and virtual scrapbook. In 2008 she decided to integrate blogging into her organization’s overall communications plan. 

Will Coley, Aquifer Media, designs social campaigns and digital storytelling for groups such as ACLU, the Freedom from Fear awards, Rights Working Group, and Public Interest Projects. Will describes himself as a "latte-drinking, bike-riding, taco-loving, media-making social justice do-gooder media maker originally from North Carolina now living in Los Angeles." He has been an advocate and organizer with immigrants and refugees in Charlotte, New York/Newark, and Los Angeles, as well as in Zimbabwe and Great Britain, for organizations including Detention Watch Network and LA Media Reform Group to name a few. 

Having spent the last ten years restlessly roving the planet, Melissa Schilling, a published writer and photographer, has spent time coordinating photo-art therapy in the aftermath of the Haitian earthquake, searching for huitlecoche on the Mayan Riviera, riding bicycles through Patagonia, cooking Basque food in the Pais Vasco and deep-sea fishing off the coast of Cuba. Her most recent project, Project Hope Art, is on a mission to use art as a catalyst for healing and expression to improve the quality of life for children in need.  

Rosetta Thurman has been blogging about leadership, nonprofits and social media  since 2007. She is also the co-author of How to Become a Nonprofit Rockstar, 50 Ways to Accelerate Your Career, an accessible, do-it-yourself map of how to build a successful career in the nonprofit sector. Rosetta is proud to be a member of the Young Entrepreneurs Council and the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network.  In 2008, she was named a “New Leader in Philanthropy” by Greater DC Cares. In her free time, Rosetta writes poetry, cooks fancy food and listens to music from the 80s. She also tweets. A lot.

This is a live-streamed, interactive event where you can ask questions directly into chat and get answers from a range of experts and TechSoup staff on hand.
