Blog Action Day 2008!

We were delighted to be invited recently to take part in Blog Action Day on October 15th 2008!

Blog Action Day is an annual nonprofit event that aims to unite the world’s bloggers to post about the same issue on the same day. The aim is to raise awareness and trigger a global discussion.

Each blogger brings their own perspective and ideas to their blog post, and each blogger engages their audience differently.

First and last, the purpose of Blog Action Day is to create a discussion. Bloggers are asked to take a single day out of their schedule and focus it on an important issue.

On Blog Action Day, the blogging community effectively changes the conversation on the web and focuses audiences around the globe on that issue. Out of this discussion naturally flow actions, advice, ideas and plans.

In 2007 on the theme of the Environment, bloggers ran environmental experiments, detailed innovative ideas on creating sustainable practices and brought attention to organizations and companies promoting green agendas.

In 2008 the aim is to focus the blogging community’s energies and passions on the mammoth issue of global poverty.

Blog Action Day is about mass participation and anyone is free to join in! There is no limit on the number of posts, the type of posts or the direction of thoughts and opinions.

StatCounter will be taking part in Blog Action Day on October 15th, and we encourage our members to think about participating also.

  9. Hi Statcounter Team & Friends,

    Just 2 days to go before B.A.D. 2008. Like that?
    I am already going with the posts at my personal political oriented blog.
    Figured I would get a head start since I feel like an under dog.

  10. Hi China Tea,

    Its just me AKA DSL Guy. I think I can honestly say I have come from the gutter to becoming a viable participant in my community. Yes, I have been homeless before. I know what it’s like to be alone, hungry and cold with no where to go.

    I am sure others knew it too by the way I smelled. Usually like the salty Pacific Ocean. At that time the Pacific was my bath tub. 🙂

    I am here today by God’s Grace so I suppose I was never really all alone. 🙂

    Take Care China,
    Sincerely Danny
