Make a difference on October, 15 talking about poverty on your blog!

 

 

"Blog Action Day is an annual nonprofit event that aims to unite the world’s bloggers, podcasters and videocasters, to post about the same issue on the same day. Our aim is to raise awareness and trigger a global discussion.

First and last, the purpose of Blog Action Day is to create a discussion.

Out of this discussion naturally flow actions, advice, ideas, plans, and empowerment.

In 2007 on the theme of the Environment, we saw bloggers running environmental experiments, detailing innovative ideas on creating sustainable practices and focusing audience’s attentions on organizations and companies promoting green agendas. In 2008 we aim to again focus the blogging community’s energies and passions, this time on the mammoth issue of global poverty.

Anyone is free to join in on Blog Action Day and there is no limit on the number of posts, the type of posts or the direction of thoughts and opinions.

Currently registered to participate: 3,825 Sites with an audience in excess of 7,626,754 Readers, among which are

TechCrunch, ReadWriteWeb, LifeHacker, Mashable, Smashing, VentureBeat, etc."
