Two things to celebrate today! I started this blog exactly two years today, and this is my 100th post.
No pressure or anything!
I just want to take a moment to reflect on the past two years, what it’s given me, and the role blogging has had in my life.
In the past two years, I was accepted to and started the Masters in Nonprofit Administration program at University of San Francisco. I moved from San Diego to the bay area to pursue this program and move back to where my family is. I have had two different jobs, and am thrilled to share that I am starting something new in the coming weeks! My new opportunity, while still in development, is at a higher level than I’ve worked before. I have a successful career, am learning like crazy in my Masters program, and continue to rock it in the nonprofit sector.
Blogging has so much to do with this. Through this blog, I have connected with thought leaders in the sector. When at networking events, people commonly recognize my name and ask “Chapin – are you Nonprofit Chapin?” I started this blog as a way for me to process my experience and thoughts about my experience in the sector. And while I still do that, and that will always be the core of this blog, a strong consequence of this has been that others have recognized and appreciate that I put my voice out there.
I am so grateful to all of you, my readers, for your participation in my experience, whether it be silent or spoken. Thank you!
Congrats on the 2 years! I just hit 2 years on my own blog last Tuesday. I think I’m only at around 80 posts though. Either way I feel like it’s an accomplishment especially seeing how much has grown. To another 2 and many more!
Thank you so much, and congratulations to you as well! It is a great accomplishment 🙂
Congrats!! Let me know if you’re ever back down here in San Diego 🙂
I’m so pleased to hear that you are doing so well and documenting your journey. Sharing your experience is such an asset to others!
Thank you, Julie! Thinking about stress management in the context of my experience is a big deal for me as well, so I will always be grateful of our time together!!
Nice writing, I enjoy reading your blog.
