I've wanted to do this for years, capture my thoughts and share them as part of my work. The plans were always for longer form writing. But either I start writing or don't. Here we go.
Over time I expect this blog will contain pieces on nonprofit governance, on planning and group dynamics, on arts and culture as well as government. It will range from conventional to heretical, and I am good with that. My starting point, however, is the COVID-19 world we live in. I have a restart toolkit on the website and a longer guide for the Indianapolis arts community already, but again I know you all need some bite size pieces too.
Today's bite into the COVID-19 apple? Here is my daily routine for keeping up with all the news and changes - the places I check every morning that might help you as well.
Next, I check The NYTimes and WaPo, as well as my local/regional paper and websites for my governor, mayor, or county health for anything reported.
The CDC's What's New page, telling me everything that changed online the day before.
Last, I skim Today's Stories at the ArtsJournal to find out what happened in the sector.
My list for less often check-in is longer than you want to see. Truly. But the twitter-verse is helpful, and I'll talk about that in another post.
Go forth. Do good. Be well.
