In March of this year I set up this blog. In the week that brings us International Volunteer Managers Day I want to reflect on the blog itself.
I truly wanted to have a forum where I could have a say about the profession that I love. I hoped that some people might come here and have a read of my views and perhaps engage in some dialogue about Volunteer management.
Being new to blogging I had no idea what to expect. I am a volunteer manager at the coalface and enjoy working every day with a great team of volunteers. I also happen to be privileged to work with and have as colleagues some great volunteer coordinators and managers who share my vision for the sector.
At some point yesterday the 3,000th unique visitor visited this site.
Perhaps this is small considering what other blog sites attract in a day not to mind 7 months.
But for a humble blogger like myself I am astounded. Truly.
Thank you for visiting this blog. At the end of the day I want to get more people engaged with the issues and challenges we face in volunteerism.
Now to get more people responding and answering polls!
However – by being here in the first place you are engaging! Thank you for sharing the journey with me.
