You started out small and simple, a fledgling blog before the gold rush of social media exploded. You quickly came into your own - providing a voice for hundreds of pioneers in the hinterlands of the internets.
You showed us the secrets of MySpace. The magic of avatars coming to life and protesting. The Emperor of Social Media without his clothes. And secrets to winning campaigns and donations for great nonprofit causes online.
You scored sweet points on AllTop, and even won Digg.com for a day. You featured many smart strategists working on human rights, free press, animal rights, and the environment.
It’s with bittersweet feelings that you’ve now grown up from a cute little frog, to a full fledged butterfly. You provided a beacon for those brave souls who dared to capture the alchemy of nonprofit internet marketing.
But you’re not gone. Like Obi wan, you’re just transcending to the next level of the game and with a new name. We can’t wait to share the latest nonprofit trends in online advocacy, fundraising, and social media.
