Forever Online


I am in the process of consolidating multiple social platforms due to a restructuring of our service area.  As I am going through this process I am learning, you are forever on the internet once you sign up for any social site.

I am trying to delete a blog site because we will no longer be updating it. I can’t! I can make it private, but I can’t delete due to something about domain name. I am still trying to figure out how to delete a You Tube site. When I try to change the name of a Facebook Page (ps. Get it right because you can only change it once) I get this!


What I am trying to say is, think carefully and into the future when you are setting up your social sites. Make sure you keep some type of log with all your usernames and passwords.  Yes, I know they say never write it down….but for nonprofits DO IT!  Make sure someone besides yourself has access to that paper (online document). Trust me, trying to consolidate three area social sites to one regional one, and the people who set them up are no longer employed at my work place – I would kill for a password list from those areas.  I am still waiting for a reply from Facebook in regards to a very outdated site, that I have NO IDEA who set it up or what the username/password is.  Forever online that site will be.

Reaching your Goals


We are 18 days into the New Year. How many of you have made resolutions and have continued to stay on track? I am not one to make resolutions, but I do like to create a yearly goal or goals to strive for.

One of the tricks I have learned about setting any goal and to have best success is to accomplish that goal in little chunks.

“Do something every day, to help you work toward that goal.”

It can be 5 minutes of time or many hours a day to get to the end result of what you want to achieve.

One of the other best practices I have found in reaching a goal is to tell people.  Telling people makes you accountable and puts it out in the universe. People will then ask you about your success, and naturally, you will want to report that you are successful, so by telling people, it will make you work harder to make it happen.

I have also learned, it is ok to change the goal. Changes occur in life, and maybe because of that change, the goal you set is no longer something that is as important to you.

What are some tips you have learned in helping you achieve your goals?
