It is so very hot outside.

Dear reader-friends, as much as I would like to “Christmas-in-July” you with a witty article, a link to a fabulous contest you should enter, or THE gem of advice that could transform your organization or career for the better…

It’s just so very hot.

The best I can muster for you today is a re-gift. Grab an iced tea (or, if your air conditioner is like ours, a hot cocoa and a Snuggie) and chill your brain with a dozen of the most popular posts we’ve published in 2011. Here they are, loosely organized by category:


Graduate school

Nonprofit sector news


Now, tell us…what can we give you during the second half of the year?

Are there additional topics you’d like us to cover? Other voices you’d like to hear from? Please don’t hesitate to leave a comment and say so. Or email me anytime:

    Whatever happened to your forums? I would really like to see them return.

    Hi Abra, When we re-launched our site, we created many new ways for you to interact with us and with others on the site. Is there a specific type of dialogue you’re hoping to have, or a piece of advice you’d like to ask for (or share)?

    If you have a question about the site or our work, the fastest way to get an answer is through Contact Us:

    If you have a suggestion to make the site better, you can use Get Satisfaction:

    And if you have a question or want to start a dialogue, you can join us on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, or of course link your profile on to the people and organizations you know or admire.

    Hope this helps!
