In today’s fluid social sector environment, we cannot afford to sit still. Keeping your skills honed and current can make the difference between evolution or obsolescence. When we started Social TrendSpotter in January 2013, we endeavored to merge current thinking with the edge of innovation to inspire, to encourage, to educate, and – ultimately – to create a better social sector. Our blog newsletter and online tweets/postings keep on top of the latest knowledge and trends and help all of us absorb ideas and techniques that you can apply today.

So, on the same day as our country’s birthday, we also celebrate our 6-month birthday with our greatest hits from our blog newsletter and our social media platform, just in case you missed them:
