Juicy Nonprofit Blog: The Case Foundation Blog


When I give talks about nonprofit blogging, I often use the Case Foundation's blog as an example of a juicy blog. 

Here's why:

• Each post is illustrated with a photo

• It's featured on the home page.

• Posts cover a range of topics (e.g. TED Fellow profiles, social media tips, reporting back from events, calls to action).

Multiple staff members are bloggers, which takes the weight off of one person.

• It's easy to share. Each post has buttons at the top for people to share it on Facebook, Twitter, via email, etc.

• It's easy to subscribe. Icons for their RSS feed, Twitter feed, Facebook page, and newsletter are featured at the top of the blog.

• The author of each post is visible, rather than saying that all of the posts are by "the Case Foundation."

• It runs series (e.g. Dressed to GiveWeekly News Roundup, TED Fellows Friday).

• It has a blog roll.

• It's well-written.

• It features guest posts.

• It has a visible post archive.

• It uses video.

• It asks questions readers can respond to.

• It helps readers take action.
    What nonprofit blogs do you loooooove to read?  I'm thinking about occasionally highlighting juicy nonprofit blogs (blogs by nonprofits, not about nonprofits).  If you have suggestions for juicy nonprofit blogs I should check out, please let me know in the comments, or email me at britt AT brittbravo DOT com.
