Blog Action Day – October 15th


Bloggers Unite - Blog Action Day

What would happen if every blog published posts discussing the same issue, on the same day?

One issue. One day. Thousands of voices.

From blogactionday.org:

On October 15th – Blog Action Day, bloggers around the web will unite to put a single important issue on everyone’s mind.

In its inaugural year, Blog Action Day will be co-ordinating bloggers to tackle the issue of the environment.

What Each Blogger Will Do

Bloggers can participate on Blog Action Day in one of two ways:

  1. Publish a post on their blog which relates to an issue of their own choice pertaining to the environment. Posts do not need to have any specific agenda, they simply need to relate to the larger issue in whatever way suits the blogger and readership. Our aim is not to promote one particular viewpoint, only to push the issue to the table for discussion.
  2. Commit to donating their day’s advertising earnings to an environmental charity of their choice. There is a list of “official” Blog Action Day charities on the site, however bloggers are also free to choose an alternate environmental charity to donate to if they wish.

To participate, all you need to do is register your blog at their website, and blog about environment on Oct 15. To help promote the day so more bloggers are aware, put a banner on your site.

Thanks to musedition for passing the word!!!!
