The internet is a big place. It can be difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff when it comes to finding reliable resources online.
One of the best ways to keep up on what’s current—especially in technology and social media—is by following blogs. We follow a lot of blogs here at Givelify, so we have a pretty good idea of where to find the most interesting, relevant, and valuable information.
Here are some of the top blogs we’ve found for technology, internet, social media and online marketing information aimed at churches and nonprofits (in alphabetical order).
While these blogs are either church- or nonprofit-specific in scope, there is a great deal to learn from all of them regardless of the type of organization you work with.
