I really like reading the Chronicle of Philanthropy's Give and Take blog a daily roundup of blogs about the nonprofit world, however I've noticed the folks who write Give and Take tend to write about general sector wide issues or topics that are hot at the moment. That's ok, and many of the posts are very interesting, however I also like reading blogs that provide practical tips and advice for running my nonprofit.
So, I decided to do my own mini blog round up and share practical nonprofit operations tips provided by fellow bloggers. These items may not be "hot" to a lot of folks, but these tips are very practical and useful to me as well as the nonprofits I provide consulting to!

While I'm on this subject, I recently signed up to receive the Nonprofit Risk Management Center's eNews. So, far the two issues I received have been very practical for my nonprofit, for example the most recent eNews title was, "Legal Advice, When and Why you need it." The eNews went on to explain how to hire a lawyer. Also, the previous newsletter was, "Employee or Independent Contractor, What's the difference and why does it matter." I'd be happy to forward these eNews articles to anyone who asks via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org .
