Blog Action Day 2010 Is Coming

The 2010 Blog Action Day is coming. On October 15th, bloggers, writers, and other people from around the world will all write about one topic, to raise awareness. This year the theme is water. Why water you might ask, from the Blog Action Day homepage...

"Right now, almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water. That’s one in eight of us who are subject to preventable disease and even death because of something that many of us take for granted. Access to clean water is not just a human rights issue. It’s an environmental issue. An animal welfare issue. A sustainability issue. Water is a global issue, and it affects all of us."

When I looked at the Blog Action Day homepage, before writing this, they already had over 1,500 blogs registered to participate, from 98 countries, with over 12,000,000 readers. So, already the reach is pretty good. In honor of this years event, I created an event at Globaljammerz and am encouraging all of you on and Globaljammerz to play songs around the theme of Blog Action Day on October 15th. Since not everyone can or wants to write, this opens things up for more people to participate in the event. Any song that you wish to play related to Blog Action Day should have #BAD, #BAD2010, or #2010BAD in them so that they can be found by the various tracking programs. For people that have Twitter integrated with, your blips show up like tweets, so these would show up in the various Twitter trends and searchs.

If you're already on and Globaljammerz, why not participate. If you're not a member, why not check it out and join us for the event. By the way, you're more than welcome to write for Blog Action Day as well. For more information about Blog Action Day and things you can do, be sure to visit their homepage. You can share artilces that you like via Twitter, Facebook and a host of other methods. I'm looking forward to seeing what all we do for Blog Action Day this year and hope that you'll join us.
