Blog Action Day 2007

'What would happen if every blog published posts discussing the same issue, on the same day? One issue. One day. Thousands of voices.'

This is what the organizers of 'Blog Action Day' hope to find out...on October 15, 2007

Here's the details from the website:

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

Publish a post on their blog which relates to an issue of their own choice pertaining to the environment.

For example: A blog about money might write about how to save around the home by using environmentally friendly ideas. Similarly a blog about politics might examine what weight environmental policy holds in the political arena.

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.

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.

And that’s it.'

I'm going to participate.I've signed up not only this blog, but also my Travel New Zealand and Christchurch Tour Guide blogs. I can't donate my day's advertising earnings (nothing to donate) but I can be one more voice to write about the environment.
