What It’s All About

29 06 2010

Well, I suppose if you’re going to start a blog, you should introduce yourself. Of course, I imagine that when you first start a blog only your friends are reading it, so you already know me. But, just to be polite, I’ll introduce myself.

My name is Sarajoy Pickholtz. You can call me Sj.

Here are some important things to know about about me:

  • I love my family
  • I sing barbershop — I’m a lead, though I sang baritone for 17 years
  • I sing in a 5 time Gold-Medal-winning totally awesome record-breaking Sweet Adelines chorus, the Melodeers
  • I also sing with a wonderful, smaller Sweet Adelines chorus, Riverside Chorus
  • I sing in a quartet called Premium Blend
  • I love my cats
  • I’m a webmaster in my “real” job
  • I used to be a graphic artist
  • I was an English major
  • I have a strong, vested interest in my sister and brother-in-law’s business, Gold Medal Ideas and I look forward to some day in the far future when I’ll be able to work at it full time
  • Lots more but this is all that I’m going to start with right now

I’ve been working in and around and with non-profits for over thirty years, and I’ve picked up a few tips and tricks about marketing, fundraising, membership, and participation that I thought I might share in this blog. Since I’m a webmaster, I have some particular web tricks I’d like to share. I know a lot about graphics, so I’m going to answer a lot of questions that you didn’t even know you had.

I envision a kind of interactive blog where I share, you share and we all get great ideas from each other.

That’s it, I think. How this for my first blog entry?
