October 15th is Blog Action Day, an annual event wherein bloggers from around the world join together and post about a single subject having to do with improving lives, calling attention to important issues of the day, and sparking a global conversation.
In 2007, Blog Action Day focused on the environment, and in 2008, poverty is the focus of thousands of bloggers who will all post about some aspect of poverty on the same day.
If you're a blogger, please consider joining and adding your voice to the conversation. If you're not a blogger, please consider starting a blog today and making your first post about this crucial global issue. If you are neither a blogger nor a person who cares to become one, please tune in to the Blog Action Day website on October 15th, follow links to some of the many posts submitted, and leave comments for the participating bloggers so that we know you're out there and listening.
Thanks, and please check out this video from the Blog Action Day staff.
