It’s becoming more and more clear that the craigconnects experiment I started last March has gotten off to a better start than I’d ever expected. The site’s recently been noticed by the Chronicle of Philanthropy, which is a big deal.
It’s still all pretty surreal to me, I never anticipated the work I’m doing to be newsworthy enough to be noticed by the Chronicle of Philanthropy. Though the causes and orgs I believe in and support do such good stuff I’m thrilled that they are being promoted, and a main topic of conversation. I’m glad this article will lead people to the site so that they’ll have access to more information and links to the causes and orgs themselves.
Anyway, Cody Switzer says:
Two men dominated the most-viewed stories on The Chronicle’s Social Philanthropy blog this year: Steve Jobs and Craig Newmark.
Mr. Jobs, the late Apple founder, was the focus of two of the most popular posts, both questioning his legacy on philanthropy. Mr. Newmark, the founder of Craigslist, was also mentioned twice in the five most-viewed posts—one about his new nonprofit-focused blog Craigconnects and another about a graphic he commissioned about large charities on social media.
I appreciate the recognition. Thanks, folks.
