“Is Your Nonprofit Blog a Snoozer?” Find the Solution at SXSW Interactive 2011

By Emily Riemer

Ever wonder how nonprofits write successful blogs, turning high readership into active support? Believe me, it’s a challenge. 

No matter how interesting your nonprofit’s work, if you don’t offer a variety of content on your blog–a range of technical, informative and human interest stories–it won’t engage supporters. If you’re the editor of a nonprofit blog–or even a for-profit blog–and are challenged to turn passive readers into activists, vote to bring http://www.opportunity.org/Opportunity[/intlink]‘s proposed panel discussion “Is Your Nonprofit Blog a Snoozer?” to SXSW Interactive 2011. We’ll discuss our experiences with nonprofit blogging, and bring in several editors and leaders from a variety of successful organizations who’ll give helpful advice and lend their expertise. 

Opportunity has been to SXSW before. Last year, we stirred up some buzz with our discussion, “http://www.opportunity.org/blog/%e2%80%9cwill-kiva-kill-your-nonprofit-donations-2-0%e2%80%9d-nope-not-ours/Will Kiva Kill Your Nonprofit? Donations 2.0[/intlink],” led by our very own VP of interactive marketing Ruth-Anne Renaud.

Blogging not your thing? Check out “http://www.opportunity.org/blog/bring-opportunity-to-sxsw-2011/Life After Blackbaud[/intlink],” a proposal by software engineer Jonathan Neddenriep for a panel discussion on switching from nonprofit-specific CMS and CRM platforms to general market service platforms. Vote for Opportunity’s interactive proposals and we’ll see you at SXSW 2011. 

Note: This Friday, August 27 is your last day to vote to bring Opportunity to SXSW.
