7 Days to Go – Have you Registered?
We’ve got just 7 days to go before Blog Action Day 2008 – and we want to make sure everyone who participated in 2007 has had a chance to register their blogs to post up on October 15th and join us once more in shaking the internet!
In 2008 we’re discussing Poverty and we’re all set for a huge year with thousands of bloggers registered to participate, including dozens of top bloggers like TechCrunch, LifeHacker and more!
Additionally we have members of both the Spanish and English parliaments planning on participating, a ton of great organisations including the United Nations Millenium Campaign, Friendster, MySpace, Kiva, BlogTV, Blog.de, and lots more.
Happy Earth Day everyone. It is sure fun to write and read about it, but did you personally take action today? I know I did, and have been for the last 3 years. So let’s keep it clean and green. Comment below and tell the world what did you do. if you didn’t then please, get up and do something.
Here is 2 videos to get you going:
And I want to thank our earth for everything we took for granted.
Thank You Earth
May 3rd of this year marks my best friends wedding, and also one of my new favorite days, the shut down day.
It is becoming one of the biggest global movement ever, to shut down your computers completely for 24 hours.
The idea started to find out if people can stay away from computers for 24 hours, and what will happen. Well I did it last year, and I took a long bike ride (First time out after my leg accident) and it was great.
This year I am committed to taking the next step in my effort to help have greener earth.
I will not only shut down all my computers, I will also shut down this blog for 24 hours with one logo that will show.
I will also be at my friends wedding, but after the wedding I am going to be in time square to participate in a flash mob (I got the idea from the site) and then I will just go home and simply sleep.
To find out more (And please do) go to www.shutdownday.org and see the way that you can participate, of course the idea is still to shut down your computer for 24 hours. and just enjoy your day 😉
As many of you might know that today is blog action day:
Today I encourage all bloggers to join the force, after all it’s about our own environment!
Steps we (bloggers) can take to make a different:
1- Take action by making a plan (pledge) to save our environment by joining Yahoo’s green program here.
2- Turn your computer off at night
3- Consider donating for an environmental cause.
4- Learn more about recycling and how it works here.
5- You already saving papers by blogging but here is quite a few more ideas:
a. Choose not to print receipts at your ATM. And try to do more online banking.
b. Subscribe to your favorite newspaper or magazine online (Most publications allow that now)
c. If you eat outside, Make sure to use fewer napkins.
6- Buy a more energy efficient monitor for your computer.
7- Plant a tree somewhere.
I know there is a lot more we can do to save our environment but that was just a start.
Enjoy your day, have some green tea.
