My Last Post

It’s my last day here at the Red Cross, and I feel like I should have something profound to say, but I don’t.

It’s been five eventful years. Earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, you name it. I feel privileged to have been able to help the Red Cross respond to those events. And also to help people like you, dear blog reader, get prepared for such disasters.

Five years is a good chunk of time, but it’s eons in Internet Years. Back when I posted “A Brief Introduction,Myspace was still a big deal, Twitter was in its infancy, and your mom was not yet on Facebook. My how times have changed.

But before I get too wistful, I’m going to recap some of my favorite little silly moments from way back in the blog archives. (When you’re doing serious work, it’s important to balance it out with some silliness.)

There have been SO many more silly, amazing, sad, and wonderful moments. Too many to mention.

Most of all I feel lucky to have worked with such warm-hearted, talented people. Lise, Nate, and dozens of equally awesome non-blogging coworkers.

And now I’ll sign off and bestow the title of Blog Master upon the very worthy Nate Warren.

All I have left to say to you all is THANK YOU. It’s been great.


  • I'll miss you, Robin!

    It was great to be able to meet you as part of the Portland Peace Prize. I wish I'd been able to do an internship with the Red Cross before you left.

    I wish you all the best with your endeavours from now on!

  • Your Red Cross blog posts are some of the reasons I wanted to blog for RedCrossPDX in the first place. Thank you for your contributions and I hope to carry the flag high!

  • I'll miss you Robin! Social media has changed a lot, in particular with the importance for an organization to have a personality online. You've given the Oregon Red Cross an amazing personality, which we will strive to keep active. Wishing you the best in your future endeavors.
