As 2010 draws to a close, I’ve been taking trips down memory lane with the help of Google Analytics. Here are some of the most popular topics and posts since January 1, 2010…
Lots of you want to learn how to score your dream job. Some hits from the Career Corner:
- Career Corner: How to Share Your “Resume Leftovers” at an Interview
- Career Corner: Avoid a Midlife Crisis: Discern Your Career Path by Networking
We also try to cover events and themes that relate to the nonprofit sector more broadly; the most trafficked post on the subject was the one with the most alarming title: Will 200,000 U.S. Nonprofits Vanish in Two Weeks? Hope we didn’t scare you too much!
With regard to current events, the posts that struck the deepest chord were the ones about how to respond to the earthquake in Haiti in January; Helping Haiti: Things to Consider had the most views.
And then there were a whole bunch of posts that loosely fit under the category of “Resources” – books, websites, contests, events, and ideas that can help people move from good intentions to action:
- Launching or furthering a teaching career? Alternative ways to move forward
- Small change adds up to more than a billionaire’s bucks
- Planning a wedding? 10 tips for a socially conscious celebration
- Students: Apply today for a $10,000 grant
- Volunteering, 2010-style
- Book Review: Learn to love your lack of direction
I love this category. Why? I like to think of our website as one giant, hands-off matchmaker. Every day, hundreds of new opportunities appear on Idealist – from internships in faraway countries to events taking place down the street. And every day, thousands of you come to search for the perfect opportunity. We can’t help every single one of you find the perfect match, so we try to use the blog to highlight resources that lots of you might find useful or interesting.
We’ll keep highlighting these resources, and whether you identify as an activist, advocate, volunteer, everyday philanthropist, job seeker, or you simply, boldly embrace the label “Idealist,” I hope you’ll enjoy our shiny new blog as we head into 2011. Let us know what you think by leaving comments on the posts that grab your attention!
