Changing the World, One Blog at a Time…Unite!

I missed announcing this by a couple of days, but I thought it was still worthwhile to do so in case some of you out there still haven’t heard. The folks behind the “Blog Action Day” weblog are organizing the first annual, well, Blog Action Day! On October 15th, 2007, bloggers from all over the blogosphere will unite in a single cause by universally discussing the same topic on the same day, worldwide. This year, that cause is the environment. The idea behind the site is that if everyone is talking about the same topic on the same day, you can help bring awareness to the issue in a way that simultaneously reaches the masses far and wide. I wish they had done a blog action week, but a day is a good start :)

I signed up Bookmark Bliss today, and I’ll most likely discuss something that deals with ways to improve your business without stepping on the environment. You can write about something in your niche dealing with the environment, or go completely off topic and talk about something else. The choice is yours! I encourage all of you out there to sign up as well. The official launch was only 3 days ago, but already they’ve rallied more than 1,000 blogs to the cause. By the time October 15th rolls around, I think that number will be pushing into the 10’s of thousands if not 100’s or more. If you don’t have a blog, they also list several other methods that you can use to participate.  

It’s a great cause and you can head over to their site to read more about it and ultimately sign yourself up should you feel so inclined.

I did a quick scan of the list of already participating members, and I thought I would do a little “call to action” for a few of my favorite blogs who I didn’t notice on the list (if you are on there, I apologize, the list is pretty long!).

Here are some blogs I’m hopping to see sign up:

I hope everyone will take the time to signup, and encourage others to do so as well. Here’s looking forward to October 15th, 2007!

  1. Excellent, great to hear you guys both signed up. It’s an interesting idea, especially with the fact that they plan to change causes every year…
