    E-marketing: Managing an E-mail Marketing Platform Migration

    New Media, Nonprofit Communications

    Over the last couple of weeks I have been in charge of a migration from one Salsa Labs platform to another. The reason for this seemingly meaningless and unrecognizable change, at first glance to the end-user, is to host the KeepAmericaFishing™ actions, e-mail and donation forms on their own dedicated IP address. Previously, KeepAmericaFishing actions, […]

    Blog Tools, New Media

    Recently, I ran across an article on Six Revisions entitled, “The 960 Grid System Made Easy” by Joshua Johnson. I have known about the 960 Grid System for some time now. However, I had yet, up to this point, to implement the system in any of my designs. As I had some time on my […]

    Living an Excellent Adventure

    Nonprofit Communications

    Recently, I read a Fundraising Success Magazine article by Jeff Brooks, entitled, “Go On … I Dare You: Feeling brave? Here are 10 fundraising challenges for the new year” and it got me thinking.

    Is Traditional Online Political Advocacy Working?

    General Thoughts, Nonprofit Communications

    Recently, I read an article on the Huffington Post by Jake Brewer entitled, “The Tragedy of Political Advocacy.” This article questions the effectiveness of online political advocacy in reaching the intended recipient, in this case and most often, Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. Brewer writes, “[d]espite how good your civic action may have made you […]

    Exploring the Fortress Model

    Nonprofit Communications

    Today, as is accustomed to my personality, being a Myers Briggs ENTJ, I acted too quickly when trying to spread the news of the latest campaign that is launching today. I was quick to jump the starting gun and was asked to rescind my posts to both Facebook and Twitter about it, which I quickly […]

    Appreciating the Process

    General Thoughts, Life Events

Unemployment insurance will only last six months, or 26 weeks. This indicates that unemployment insurance may run out while I seek out gainful employment. […]
