Welcome to my blog!
As a complement to my consulting work, I’ll be blogging about topics related to communications, philanthropy, nonprofits, and racial and social justice issues. I’ll also take on some topics related to fundraising and development and, occasionally, other issue areas outside of racial and social justice, such as the arts or education.
You’ll find categories named for each these topics under the categories listing on the blog page or by checking out the submenus beneath “Paul’s Blog” in the navigation menu. Each entry will have at least one topic category.
Each entry will also consist of one of the following writing types: how-to articles, knowledge-based/informational articles, interviews, commentary, or stories/reporting (which will quite often dovetail with stories I’ve researched through my consulting projects or through my ongoing assignment as the managing editor of the Marginalized Males Funders Group (MMFG) e-newsletter.
So, each entry will have at least two categories: a topic category (possibly more than one) and a type category.
My hope is that this will generate some useful information for readers and allow for some interactive discussion about topics in the independent sector to which I’ve devoted the last 10 years of my career. It also should give you some insight into me, my skills, my work, and what I might be able to do for you—whether you’re a potential client, colleague, or just an interested party.
I invite your comments, questions, and opinions (both vague or heartfelt).
