I plan to participate on October 15th in the Blog Action Day 2008 and hope that you will, too!

"Blog Action Day is 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. Our aim is to raise awareness and trigger a global discussion."

Blogging, as I have talked about many times in the past, is really about conversations and I think the idea behind Blog Action Day is the perfect example of that.  By encouraging as many people to focus on the same issue for one day we can ignite ideas, conversations, and even actions to help fight poverty and the issues related to it.

I’m excited to participate and hope to blog about some great examples of social media use by poverty-focused organizations as well as the missions and work of those groups.  So, join me for Blog Action Day this year and help further the reach of the conversation!

Blog Action Day 08: Focusing on poverty

  • Hi Amy,

    I will be participating in Blog Action Day as well. I look forward to reading your blog post.

  • Me, too. I live a town (Clarkston, GA), that has received national coverage for its large population of refugees (http://www.nytimes.com/2007/01/21/us/21fugees.html). We have a lot of poverty in Clarkston, and I write about its effects a lot on my blog. Honestly, Oct 15th will be just another post for me…
