Do-it, the site which enables volunteer matching, has launched a range of blogs by volunteers.
There are a number of contributors to each of The Overseas Blog, The Students’ Blog, The Campaigners’ Blog, but we were surprised, or possibly just amused, to note that all 7 or 8 bloggers are female. Hopefully they’ve got some blokes lined up – wouldn’t want volunteering being seen as just a girlie thing, would we?
While on blogs, David Miliband, the minister reshuffled to head up environment food and rural affairs (DEFRA) has managed to ‘move’ his pioneering blog. That’s in quote marks as at present it still resides at ODPM but with a rebranding. And don’t confuse him with his brother Ed, now minister for the voluntary sector in the Cabinet Office.
