Blog Action Day – October 15th – Topic: The Environment

Filed as News on August 17, 2007 1:54 am

On October 15th, the first annual “Blog Action Day” will take place, offering an opportunity for bloggers around the world to write about a common subject in whatever way is appropriate to them and their blog.

For its first year, the topic is “the environment”, and the organisers suggest three ways of getting involved:

  1. Post on your blog relating to the environment
  2. Donate your day’s earnings to an environmental charity
  3. Promote Blog Action Day around the web

Some “big names” already participating include GigaOm, Lifehacker, Chris Garrett, Copyblogger, SEOMoz, and ProBlogger, but of course the power of projects like this is in “the masses” taking part.

“For just one day, we’d like to unite as many of the millions of bloggers around the world and speak about one issue – the environment,” said Collis Ta’eed, an Australian blogger from FreelanceSwitch.com, and a cofounder of Blog Action Day. “We want to display the potential and the power of the blogging community, which is a disparate community but one with an amazing size, breadth and diversity. By bringing everyone together for one day, we can see just how much can be achieved, and how much we can be heard.”


You can sign up for the project at BlogActionDay.org

    I’ve been focusing on water saving issues on GetGreen. Now that it’s not just 3rd world countries suffering from a lack of water, it seems people are starting to take notice.
