(republished post to "get to the point" also because my Mom said I ended too many sentences with a proposition (sigh) )

I took a break from blogging for the past few months. It was not really a summer vacation. It was just that I got the blogging blues. Why? Because I was getting wrapped up in the Wiki-RSS-SecondLife-Web 2.0-Social Media maelstrom. I was afraid my philosophical musings couldn't compete. In short, I lost my way.
What is my way? I’m here to provide a philosophical examination of the issues underlying our nonprofit ways. Sometimes it’s accounting or compliance and yes sometimes technology or meta-tech. Unfortunately, I’m a generalist lost between the hot topics with the great take-aways. My message isn’t clear (or clear enough) and I only reach 39 unique visitors. Yes I’m RSS-able and search optimized and post regularly (at least I did for 14 consecutive months).
So why bother? Because there are things that I need to say and I’m compelled to say them. In addition, because I have found myself among a community--one that I never had before. A group of nonprofit bloggers I’m proud to be a part of. So without further adieu here are the five bloggers with a philosophical bent that I love the most:
- Andrew Taylor’s TheArtfulmanager
- The Agitator (IF that is Roger Craver and Tom Belford, does this count as two? Then I’d have to have the top 6 but that wouldn’t qualify for the “top five” carnival!)
- Ken Goldstein’s The Nonprofit Consultant
- Phil Cubeta’s Gift Hub
- Bao Vang’s Minnesota Council of Nonprofits blog
