Get Involved In Blog Action Day 2010 – Topic Water!

The annual event where bloggers around the world focuses on just a topic christianed Blog Action Day, is here again. This event which comes up every 15th of October is just about 5 days from today. This year’s event is taking on another dimension as Change.org is taking on the event from Blog Action Day Co-creators Collis and Cyan Ta’eed.

The topic chosen for this year is, “WATER”. This as usual is done through users votes. According to the official website, the topic of water is chosen because:

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.

As a blogger you can participate in this event by registering your blog by clicking here. Once registered you will need to make a post on the topic of water on the 15th of October. Of course the organizers have given a few ideas around which you can make your blog post on that day. Check here for the list of ideas.

However,  if you do not have a blog, you can also participate by joining the discussions on that day by tweeting blog posts, retweeting on twitter and of course following tweets that mention the event. You can follow the event by following  @blogactionday or using the hashtag #BAD10 to follow the conversation.

That is not all, you can also support the event by signing the petition to encourage UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to continue the UN’s life-saving work of bringing water and sanitation to developing nations. I’ve embeded the petition request widget on the sidebar. (Just look over to the right). Go on and sign it!

  1. Thanks for the info, though I want to think you have more info about the blog action day thing, what has the traffic to one’s blog got top do with this stuff?

    • Hi Iroko,

      First, the blog action day is about bloggers devoting that day, 15th October, to talking just about one subject of general importance. Like this year, all the registered blogs will be talking about water, its importance, what the world should do about it and other issues. It is about using the power of blogging to bring issues of importance to lime light.

      On traffic to ones blog, that may not neccessary be the the aim. Though as your blog post on that day will have the opportunity of appearing on other sites like the official site for the blog action day and through tweets, bookmarking, referals etc, this will definitely bring some new traffic to your site. But we must understand that the idea of the blog action day is you devoting your writing prowess to bring to world attention issues of importance!

  2. Just want to add that it’s not only the bloggers who can join this cause. Non bloggers can also join hands by signing a petition to help the UN supply the world’s poorest regions with clean water.

    • Yea, that’s true and I think that was also mentioned in the post. Everyone has the opportunity to be part of this. I’ve the widget for the petition on the sidebar. You can easily sign it right on this site. Also watch for the posts on 15th so that you can support by tweeting and bookmarking on your favorite sites. Thanks for the comment.
