In layman’s words… the goal of Blog Action Day is to get as many bloggers as possible writing about the same issue on the same day and to do it in a unique way that is associated with their own blog.

Why?

To raise the awareness about poverty and make people talk, think and act about it.

  1. Signed up a few days ago when I first heard about it. I haven’t a clue what I’m going to write that would relate to my blog, but I definitely know about being poor and homeless.

  2. Hey Jacob, thanks for the info. I remember reading about the one last year and I’m glad you reminded me.

    Also, I thought it would be fun to hold a Blog Action Day poster contest over at my website http://www.brianhoff.net. Winner receives a $25 iTunes card! 🙂

  3. Thanks for pointing this out Cass.

    I’m also rather new to blogging, so I was unaware of the effort, but I think I’ll pitch in. I mean one man alone feels like he can’t make much of an impact, but together…

    I’m diggin’ the banners & buttons they offer too

    Sorry to see so few comments on this post 🙁
