Another Great Resource for Nonprofits

March 18, 2009

Last night I stumbled upon the Web site for One World, an online resource for nonprofits worldwide. It’s a great news aggregate in terms of relevent headlines, training workshops (there is a strategy workshop on integrated online communications such as the use of Facebook, Twitter and the Internet which looks good) and international job postings as well.

It also covers a broad range of world regions and issues. It’s worth a browse and perhaps some regular visits from time to time.

I’ll add a link to our sidebar as it seems they update their site regularly.

This looks like a very useful resource for anyone working in the non-profit field or doing work involved with international development.

Blog Note: Sidebar Features Peace Corps Blog Directory

February 2, 2009

As Colony Magazine’s blog “The Advanced Ape” continues to develop, its sidebar will also grow. If you have a blog that deals with international travel or development work and would like to see it added to our sidebar, please send us an email with your URL and a brief description of your site. (In return, we would appreciate you linking to our blog as well!)

In the meantime, we encourage our readers to check out the the World Wide Peace Corps Blog Directory which is on our sidebar. The site compiles several Peace Corps volunteer blogs from throughout the world and even has an alert system that notifies visitors of the most recently updated sites.

Considering the technical limitations many PCVs have during their service, most of the blogs seem quite up-to-date with current posts.

If you know of a PCV blog that is not part of the directory and should be, please notify us about it. “The Advanced Ape” will check out the site and if it’s appropriate, link it to our own sidebar.

In the meantime, you will see this blog develop more and grow. Link recommendations, guest bloggers (or those willing to serve as part of our team of regular bloggers/writers) are welcome!

Welcome to “The Advanced Ape,” a blog for Colony Magazine

January 6, 2009

Welcome to Colony Magazine’s blog, “The Advanced Ape.”

The mission of the magazine (and blog) is to portray people in peaceful developing communities who strive to improve their world but lack resources in a realistic and compassionate manner, and to connect them with counterparts who have technical skill, expertise and concern for their fellow human.

Colony Magazine, set to officially launch early this year, is a new publication that highlights the successes of driven individuals in peaceful developing countries. (more…)
