Blog Action Day is Coming

Posted on October 2, 2007. Filed under: Musings, Science |

The Environment is the topic for the first annual Blog Action Day, on October 15.

I’m pleased that the good folks at BlogActionDay.org (part of a network of socially conscious creative support tools) are inviting bloggers to write in any way they wish about the environment. Global warming real or media hoax? Give your opinion on October 15. Do you have a favorite environmental action organization or cause? Let us know about it then. Maybe you think the environment is a truly boring topic? Blog about how overblown the whole thing is!

What will I say? You (and I) may be surprised. Thousands of blogs are going to participate. If you’d like to register yours, it will be linked on the Action Day website. See you on Monday, October 15.

For just one day, we’d like to unite as many of the millions of bloggers around the world and speak about one issue – the environment,” said Collis Ta’eed, an Australian blogger from FreelanceSwitch.com, and a cofounder of Blog Action Day. “We want to display the potential and the power of the blogging community, which is a disparate community but one with an amazing size, breadth and diversity. By bringing everyone together for one day, we can see just how much can be achieved, and how much we can be heard.”

This is a good idea, though I must post on the environment at least once a week, anyway.

Thank u so much for the info..

Have a nice day..

C.V.

The topic certainly impacts us daily, Anthony. I wonder if you’ll take a “Patternology” approach? I appreciate that you write from a holographic perspective.

C V, you are very welcome. I’m looking forward to reading what we all write on the 15th!

[…] to musedition for passing the […]

I don’t have to be prodded to do this …lol. I used to be an environmental blogger so I’ll be glad to join in. Thanks for the heads up.

Between, thanks for linking!
And brightfeather, you are welcome. Familiar territory for you! It’s exciting to come together as a community for something like this.

Thanks for the reminder, Muse. This almost slipped my mind after the Blogging Against Abuse campaign but it’ll be good to take part in. And looking at the site they’ve got some pretty impressive groups supporting it; Lifehacker, Treehuger, ProBlogger – even Greenpeace!

Not sure what my topic will be about yet, but maybe something positive, like some of the small ways we can all make a difference… now we just need Bob Geldof to organise LiveBlog and we’ll be all set! 😛

Oh, Liveblog, that’d be good! I believe this Action Day will get quite a response. It’s pulling me in several directions right now–don’t know which way I’ll lean. I am sure you will write something good and pertinent and helpful, and I’ll look forward to that. 🙂
