Lexington, NC (PRWEB) May 24, 2006
Nonprofit organizations now have a simple way to find the best free advice that consultants are offering to them online via blogs – the new Carnival of Nonprofit Consultants. Each Monday, the Carnival of Nonprofit Consultants will present seven of the best blog posts of the previous week. Topics will include everything from fundraising and management to communications and technology. The first edition will be published June 12, 2006.
Nonprofits interested in reading the carnival editions can subscribe by going to the Carnival’s homepage at http://www.Writing911.com/carnival. The page features an RSS feed, as well as an email subscription option. Subscribers will be notified when a new edition of the carnival is available and where it can be found online. An archive of all of the editions will also be available on the page.
Consultants interested in contributing to the Carnival can visit the home page at http://www.Writing911.com/carnival for information on how to submit their blog posts for consideration each week, starting June 5. They can also join the contributors’ mailing list to get reminders about deadlines and themes. Consultants who add the Carnival’s logo to their blog will be added to the permanent blogroll (list of links) on the Carnival home page.
Blog carnivals are a fast-growing tool for Web users who want help wading through the blogosphere. They are often compared to magazines or journals, because they are formatted as editions with annotated links to articles. “Blog carnivals have been a useful way for bloggers to increase their traffic and participate in communities that discuss issues they are passionate about,” says Brad Rubenstein, CTO of Blog Carnival (http://blogcarnival.com), which helps bloggers organize and promote blog carnivals. “The bloggers who host and contribute to carnivals form online communities related to topics as varied as finance, law, cooking, and sports. Blog Carnival looks forward to serving the not-for-profit community along with the Carnival of Nonprofit Consultants," says Rubenstein.
The Carnival of Nonprofit Consultants is organized by Kivi Leroux Miller, president of EcoScribe Communications and Writing911.com. “The quality of advice that consultants are offering through blogs is incredible, but it’s hard for nonprofits to find that advice and to sort through it regularly,” says Miller. “The Carnival will help solve that problem by providing the best of the consultant blogs each week.” It will also provide consultants with a new way to market themselves and to build their own professional networks, says Miller.
