Blog Action Day

On October 15, the CCV Burlington Blog will be participating in Blog Action Day 2008. 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. Their aim is to raise awareness and trigger a global discussion and this year's topic is poverty. For more information, check out the video at the bottom of this post.
Global issues like poverty are extremely complex. There is no simple, clear answer. By asking thousands of different people to give their viewpoints and opinions, Blog Action Day creates an extraordinary lens through which to view these issues. Each blogger brings their own perspective and ideas. Each blogger posts relating to their own blog topic. And each blogger engages their audience differently.

Would you like to write for Blog Action Day? If so, send your contribution to Adam Warrington ( by Tuesday, October 14. What you write is up to you... so long as it is around the theme of ending poverty. Maybe you just want to contribute a paragraph or a quote. Or maybe you want to share a paper from one of your classes. The sky is the limit and the more voices the better.


  1. Good Day Sir,
    Hve you received any more posts for Blog Action Day? I am hoping yes.Now more than ever folks should be more in tune with the issue as it is going to become more rampant in the global economic crisis.
    I have spread the word in and about my sphere of influence but fear that not enough individuals look up and take notice.

  2. Max,
    I have recieved 3 total posts for Blog Action Day (including yours). I'm expecting 8 - 10 more as well from others who have already agreed to write something. I'm happy with that amount... but of course, the more the merrier!
