Blog Action Day 2008

 

 

Blog Action Day October 15th 2008  (http://blogactionday.org/)

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. Their aim is to raise awareness and trigger a global discussion.

 

The Purpose Of Blog Action Day  [Video here] 

The goal is to create a world wide awareness on a different topic each year through the power of blogging.  Blogs are a great promotion, communicator and resource of information.  What better way to help promote this years topic by contributing a blog to this cause.

No Excuses.  You don't have to donate money or even run in a marathon.  All you have to do to spread awareness is write a blog on the topic for that day.

2007 over 20,000 Bloggers participated in the Environment movement.  Over 14 million readers world wide on that day!  Let's double those numbers in 2008!

 

One Issue, Thousands of Voices - Poverty -

Global issues like POVERTY are extremely complex. There is no simple, clear answer. By asking thousands of different people to give their viewpoints and opinions, Blog Action Day creates an extraordinary lens through which to view these issues and triggering a chain reaction of increased and positive movement throughout the world as a collective!

 

Blog Action Day 2008

Join me in participating

I am very excited to participate this year and what a wonderful way to bring your blogging skills to the next level, a good cause!

Register your blog.  Grab the tracking code. Post your blog and include tracking code on October 15th 2008.

Now the people at Blog Action want you to keep your poverty post within your field.  My field of finance will be easy to incorporate and I am sure Real Estate Agents field will be easy to include as well.  Any field can find someway to include a poverty article in there.

 

 

Still not convinced, how about a FREE backlink?

If doing something for a good cause is still not enough, how about a free backlink for all you SEO buffs out there who want more exposure.  Once you register your blog, your blog will be listed in the Blogroll.

Are you in?  I am!

I wouldnt need any other reason to do this other than it is what is right. I have been trying to write about speaking out from the start of my blog and I dont think its something I will stray from. The internet is the last refuge of speaking your mind freely and the free exchange of ideas.

It's tomorrow.... time to start conversations about Poverty locally... what better place than Localism.  I would have thought Localism woulda been out of beta by now but it's not.
