Have you signed up for Blog Action Day?

Blog Action Day is the day when the bloggers around the world will unite and post something about the environment on their blog.

I have registered to participate! Have you?

According to the Blog Action Day website:

Blog Action Day is about MASS participation. On October 15th, bloggers around the web will unite to put a single important issue on everyone’s mind – the environment. Every blogger will post about the environment in their own way and relating to their own topic. Our aim is to get everyone talking towards a better future.

You can participate in any or all of the following ways!

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

Watch a short promo video about this:

Following has been taken from the official Blog Action Day website:

“The best way to participate is to post on your blog something that relates to the environment. Your post can be about anything to do with the environment. So you could write a post which is offtopic for your blog OR relate the environment back to your topic in some way.

For example, if you had a blog about programming and technology, you could write about applications used for the environment, how to make your office more sustainable, how to stop wasting paper, why technology will save the environment, or just write about an environmental issue which has nothing to do with programming!

As another example, if you wrote about restaurants, you could write about kitchen practices that make for a more environmentally friendly workplace, food packaging, produce made from sustainable farming or any of a multitude of topics.

What works best is to keep writing as you normally would. Your audience reads your blog for a reason, you don’t need to suddenly change your voice, style or emphasis. Simply find an angle on your regular postings which relates to the environment.

Our aim is to get people thinking, discussing, questioning and talking about the environment, from every angle, niche, viewpoint and personality. “

If you decide not to, at the very least, check out their website and find who else has registered to participate!

    I think it is along the same idea.
