Reminder to my Fellow Bloggers

The date for the 2008 edition of "Blog Action Day" is approaching. For those that do not know what this is about, I am talking about 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. Under the motto of "One day, one issue, thousand of voices", last year the issue was environment, this year the issue is poverty.

You don't need to change the general topic of your blog to participate. You just need to talk about the issue on the chosen date (October 15th) from the perspective of your own blog topic. For example if you are about Arts & Crafts you may let the world know about artists and craftmen involved in helping poor communities.

Check out their video to learn more about this event:

Being my thing creativity I have to say first that in fact, I find the idea of "Blog Action Day" very creative...

For some it may be just words, but thousands of words in thousand of places can help to boost the discussion about the topic as well as to create more awareness. Just that, is already a lot.

So if you have a blog, get involved by registering your blog and then on October 15th post something about the issue... We are talking the same day of the last McCain-Obama debate what makes it a perfect moment to talk about poverty.

The 15th is around the corner, so go ahead and register your blog now!

Hey, I almost forgot! You can also help by translating their main page from English to some other language.
