As internet technology takes off at an ever-evolving pace, daily, so do blog websites. And, thanks to bloggers out there, many have begun blogging about more than just celebrities, fashion and entertainment. Blogger and researcher Cara Pring studies social media statistics on her website, thesocialskinny.com. According to Pring, the purpose of creating her site was “to choose the social media topics that actually matter and explain them in a no-fluff, no-jargon way so that you can keep up to date about the important developments in the social media world without having to scour countless daily/weekly update emails.”
The World of Difference website reflects on the three best independent charity blogs out there on the internet currently and states these charity blogs are meant “to inspire, amuse, and inform. From donations to marketing to celebrity endorsement, these independent bloggers address the real concerns of the sector.”
To start our countdown, coming in at number three on our list is:
#3: “The Charity Blogger”
This blog site covers a wide-array of charity topics and features news stories that revolve around some of the world’s top non-profit charitable organizations to keep readers informed on what these organizations are currently working on and how we can help. With the tagline “occasional observations about giving, this blog collects anecdotes about the charity donations the way a small child collects pebbles.” The site features inspirational stories about the power of giving to those less fortunate and gives readers the opportunity to subscribe to the site.

#2: “Daryl’s Blog”
This site actually features three separate blogs. One is about Daryl’s daily life, the second is called, ‘Daryl Martin’s Fundraising Blog,’ and the third is ‘Daryl Martin’s Charity Blog.’ Martin is the author of ‘Fundraise Without Fuss’ and is known as the man behind Independent Examiners, a charity consulting firm. According to Martin, his “blog is an authoritative font of information relating to charity operations.” Martin claims “his charity operations are accessible but far reaching, as he gets to the real nitty gritty stuff so that you don’t have to.” On his site, Martin features fundraising and charity stories and how the public can become more aware of non-profit organizations and how they can contribute.

#1: “Fundraising Detective”
Created and written by Craig Linton, a blogger with years of fundraising experience, the site features tips and tricks for how the general public can get more involved in fundraising and charity organizations. Linton is also the “head of fundraising for a charity which he keeps slightly under wraps so as not to confuse the blog (his thoughts), with that of his charity (their thoughts),” according to the site. His site features ‘best fundraising links,’ ‘best fundraising blogs,’ an ‘about me’ section. Linton started blogging in 2009 and says that his blog drives him. “I do it because I’m passionate about fundraising and want to share my thoughts, opinions and learn from others.” To check out Linton’s work, go to http://fundraisingdetective.typepad.com/fundraising-detective/
