Blog Day – August 31, 2007

Blog Day - August 31, 2007Friend of mine mailed me that coming August 31, 2007 is the Blog day. First, I was confused it is an official day of blog ? But later, I learned that it is a day, initiated by Nir ofir, that wants bloggers to have one day dedicated to getting to know other bloggers from other countries and areas of interest. On that day Bloggers will recommend other blogs to their blog visitors.

Blog Action Day – October 15, 2007

Blog Action Day - October 15, 2007Blog Action Day

What it is ?

Bloggers around the world who participate in Blog Action Day will post a single topic on October 15, 2007. The topic is “Environment“. Your post can be anything which is related to environment.

For example, if you had a blog about programming and technology, you could write about applications used for the environment, how to make your office more sustainable, how to stop wasting paper, why technology will save the environment, or just write about an environmental issue which has nothing to do with programming!

There are three things you can do to participate in Blog Action Day.
