Make Blogging History
First, the title could mean "be a part of blogging history" or "put an end to blogging." My intention was the former, but I kept the language just to underscore the degree of ambiguity in three simple words. I read about a blogging challenge at Invisible Voices:
On September 27th, join 1,000s of bloggers around the world in BlogCatalog’s Blogging for a Great Cause Challenge.
This Blogging Challenge will be:
Bloggers Against Abuse
September 27th, 2007
The Outcome we are after is to be part of the largest group of
bloggers to ever blog about an important cause, all on the same day.
So how do you participate?
On Sept. 27th, blog about putting an end to some sort of Abuse (you decide what kind of abuse to blog about).
In the meantime though,
* Spread the word among all the bloggers you know. Perhaps even give them a link to this Discussion.
* If you are a graphic designer, perhaps you can come up with some
small badges announcing the event, that we can then place on our blogs.
To share the badge, place it on this thread.
* List any organizations, on this thread, who are involved in putting an end to abuse.
What do you get?
You will receive a link to your Blog Post from the Blogcatalog blog when we list everyone who participated.
You get to use your blog for an important cause.
You get to create blogging history.
As someone who is careful to say she’s against "use" and not just "abuse," I’ll definitely make sure my discussion is that use is abuse. My topic will be sentient beings. Yeah, you’ve heard it all before, but if other people will hear about it because the idea of use vs. abuse is new to them, I think the challenge is worth accepting.
