Hello, world…

“This is your very first post.”

Thanks WordPress!

So I’ve started this blog to get some of my thoughts on being a fundraiser in HE down somewhere, to share some of the things I’ve learned/am learning about doing this money-raising business, and to spread the joy that is doing a job you love.

I found myself in fundraising entirely by accident, but it was the best accident I’ve ever had (that bump on the heid when I was three doesn’t even come close). I’ve met such fantastic students, researchers, supporters, and colleagues, and I’ll be writing a bit about all kinds of things I’ve been lucky enough to be involved in so far.

The most fun I’ve had at work has been on days when something pops up and opens a whole new door I didn’t know was there. This role certainly keeps you on your toes at times!

I’m hoping my posts here will be informative, insightful (mostly) and above all, inspiring. If I can make one person happy to be a fundraiser, or give a student a new career path to consider, I’ll feel I’ve done something good.

Wish me luck, and please be kind – I’m a baby blogger! 🙂
