Tagging Missions of Organizations

I started researching organizations to help me with my job search and I have been looking at the missions of these various organizations. Even though I am looking for a technology related position, I decided I would first focus on organizations whose missions interest me. I am interested in organizations related to education, environment, and health.

Through my research and the recent posts about the use of Flickr for nonprofits, I have realized the nptech tag can be used in other ways. Learning about tagging is not just a skill for techies, it is a skill for anyone.

More uses of nptech

  • bookmark blogs of non-profit organizations
  • bookmark blogs or blog entires about an issue
  • take pictures at non-profit related events and tag them on Flickr
  • write a blog entry about an issue and tag it using tags on Technorati

How can non-profit organizations use tags?

  • Tag images, bookmarks, and blog entries to share with others who might be interested in the mission of your organization.
  • Look at the users of the tags and see who else is interested in the mission of your organization
  • Find images on Flickr related to the mission of your organization. Images found on the Creative Commons section can be used for websites, newsletters, or blog entries.
  • Find bookmarks on to help with researching about the mission of your organization.
  • Find blog entries on Technorati related to the mission of your organization.

Tags (missions, events, organizations)

  • conservation
  • ecology
  • pollution
  • raceforthecure
  • recycling
  • redcross
  • wildlife

I will be adding to this list as I find more tags.

I decided to write an entry about this topic after reading the following blog entries:

Wonder what flickr has to do with nonprofits?

I started a blog a while back called Man on a Mission, which is a blog all about mission statements. Most of the mission statements I have collected are for businesses, but I am looking for good non-profit statements to post. If you run across any you think are worth sharing please let me know.
