Countdown to Blog Action Day – October 15, 2008

We wanted to take a moment to let you know that Web Worker Daily will be participating in the second annual Blog Action Day, which will take place this Wednesday, October 15th.

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. The aim is to raise awareness and trigger a global discussion. The theme for 2008 is Poverty.

The organizers of Blog Action Day ask that we “examine the issues from our own unique viewpoints and perspectives, look for solutions on the small and large scale, and ask how the individual and the collective can make changes.”

We hope you’ll join us in this worldwide grassroots action to sensitize people to the myriad issues and stories of poverty. If you’re not a blogger, don’t despair. There are several other ways to take part!

Please let us know in the comments if you’re planning to participate!
