Raise Environmental Awareness On Blog Action Day

Unite for Blog Action Day

Can one voice make a difference? How about one blog? 100 blogs? 1000? What if every blog published posts discussing the same issue on the same day? Could they make a difference? That’s what Blog Action Day is trying to find out.

On October 15th – Blog Action Day, bloggers around the web will unite to put a single important issue on everyone’s mind.

The topic for the firs inaugural blog action day will be the environment. You can participate by:

  1. Publish a post on your blog which relates to an issue of your own choice pertaining to the environment.
  2. Commit to donating your day’s advertising earnings to an environmental charity of your choice.

Pretty simple right?

Your post is up to you. Blog Action Day is not trying to promote one particular viewpoint. Their goal is to get people talking about a single issue. For an example of what you might write

A blog about money might write about how to save around the home by using environmentally friendly ideas. Similarly a blog about politics might examine what weight environmental policy holds in the political arena.

You can register your blog and commit to writing a post by signing up or see who’s already participating.

Whether you sign up or not you can help spread the word by promoting the day. Blog Action Day has several banners you can grab to use like the ones you see on this post and they have started a list of environmental resources you can visit to find more information about the issue.

Write about the environment on Oct 15th and promote the day between now and then. Regardless of your opinion of the issue you’d likely agree the environment is something that affects all of us and is a topic worthy of conversation.

Blog Action Day. One issue. One day. Thousands of voices

  1. I might give this a try … and now that I’ve got a “main” site, a blog, and a software site, I’m starting to get a lot more strict about what I’ll post, and where. But as a photographer, things like air quality and melting glaciers affect me personally. On top of it’s just a bad idea to make our home unlivable.

  2. I think this affects all of us. I’m starting to collect the research so I can write a more informed post. I’m not sure how I’ll write it. There’s a part of me that doesn’t want to turn a post on the environment into something about marketing, but if I can find an angle I like I will. Otherwise I’ll take a break from writing about marketing for the day and just keep the post focused on environmental issues.

  3. I really think that the Blog Action day being brought forward is a great idea, and in addition if talking or blogging on environmental issues is a form of marketing, so be it, all the help is welcome.

    There are so many people who take the well being of the environment for granted, its rather shameful, for example in Canada, the National costs to gather litter across Canada is a combined whopping 300 million dollars every passing year…thats something we shouldn’t take for granted !

    What really gets my goat is the Corporations like the big M who say they love our children through how they market ( Big M Fast Food or Litter Contributing Factor Leader ) it really chokes me when big Corps like the Big M make billions of dollars at the expense of the environments beauty !

    What gets me even more is that the Big M spends nearly 2 billion a year on National or Inter-National Global Marketing and cant even come up with a decent anti litter program that would be beneficial to there Public Relations…….there Professional Marketing team really isnt all
    that smart when you really think about it !

    Anyhow , back to Environmental Blog Action day, I love the idea, my name is Canada Litter King, I legally changed my name for marketing reasons and in time I will earn and be known as an Environmental Champion against litter…Amen
