On October 15, thousands of bloggers from across the globe will have a conversation to "raise awareness and trigger a global discussion" about one of the most pressing issues of our time - POVERTY. Over 6,500 sites are registered to participate to date.
In my mind, this is what's best about blogging and the Internet. The ability for all of us to have conversations about IMPORTANT ISSUES and share our diverse experiences and points of view. It's my hope that these discussions will lead to widespread collaboration, idea generation and change.
If you'd like to learn more about Blog Action Day, check out their video. If you currently have the privilege of being a blogger/publisher, I hope you'll take up this charge and join the conversation. If you're not blogging yet, what better time to start?
