This is a quick blog post to plug Blog Action Day which will be happening again this year on 15 October. In 2008 the goal is to raise awareness and conversation around the worldwide topic of poverty and in the process raise money for the cause.
Blog Action Day is an initiative co-ordinated by Collis Ta'eed from Envato in 2007. The idea is to create an event that gets bloggers, video creators, and podcasters to start a discussion about the same issue on the same day. Last year it was the environment, this year's topic is Poverty.
To participate just commit your blog to the Blog Action Day website, write a blog or create a video about poverty, and donate an amount you see fit to the cause. At the time of writing over 2,500 blogs have registered for the event.
Whether it is your professional, personal, or company blog and you can spare the time and money then you should get on board. Visit http://blogactionday.org/ for all the details. I'm in.
