Hi everyone! My partner and I (pictured above) just got back from GenCon, the largest tabletop gaming convention in North America. While I was there, I realized what a disservice it was that I have not been updating my blog followers with what I’ve been up to lately. Many of you may have noticed that I haven’t updated this blog in a long time (or maybe you didn’t notice and I’m just flattering myself). Well, the reason why is because I’ve started working on an exciting new project – I am in the process of developing a card game!
Because of this, you may notice a few changes here on the blog. I will still publish content about the nonprofit sector and social good, but you will also find updates on the game I am working on here as well. I will try to be considerate with the way I tag my posts so that folks who are only interested in my posts on charity and social good don’t have to dig through tons of content about boardgames to find what interests them (and vice-versa). The transition to include this type of content might be a little awkward, so feel free to message me and let me know how I can make the experience of reading this blog easier for you.
One thing that I really believe in is the power of listening to other people. Listening stimulates empathy and increases your knowledge and understanding of the world around you. One of the downsides I’ve found of churning out blog content every week is that it actually has been cutting down on the amount of time I am able to spend listening to other voices in the field and catching up on the news and information flowing around me. In short, I feel like I’ve been spending too much of my time and energy on talking, and not enough on listening, and it is for this reason that I have decided to dedicate every other week to highlighting writing and reporting from experts other than myself.

Hi all – my post this week is just going to be a short announcement. I created this blog to be a resource to people who are looking to have a positive impact in the world, but truth be told, there are already lots of existing resources to help you have a better impact on the world, statistically speaking. That’s why I created this handy resource page. That page is there to link you to other sites that will also help you on your journey to be a better, smarter person – whether it’s through philanthropy, volunteerism, ethical business, or simply having the facts you need to tackle the big issues.
Know a cool resource you think a missed? Please shoot me a message and let me know. While you’re at it, here are some other good reasons to send me a message:
- You have an idea for a topic you’d like me to cover
- You’d like to collaborate on a post
- You think this site is really cool and you’d like to get involved somehow
- You have an opinion/suggestion for how I could improve the site
- You’d like to know who designed my adorable owl logo
