Last week saw the launch of Blog Action Day, an international initiative aiming to unite thousands of blogging voices and have them talk about one specific issue on one specific day – with the aim being to further global awareness of that issue and so contribute to bringing about positive change.
The inaugural Blog Action Day is scheduled for October 15th 2007, and the issue that its organisers are asking bloggers from around the world to focus on is the environment. As well as dedicating that day’s posts to reporting on issues relating to the environment, bloggers who make money from their sites are also being asked to donate the day’s earnings to environmental charities.
I’ve added this blog and the other one I contribute to – livinginadigitalworld.com – to the 1,300-plus already registered, and will be seeking-out relevant fundraising topics to blog about come the day. If you author a blog – on any subject at all – then do take a look at their site and consider adding your voice to this innovative global initiative.
