Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

As a Blogger You can Change the World

Blog Action Day

On October 15th, bloggers around the web will unite to put a single important issue on everyones mind – the environment. Every blogger will post about the environment in their own way and relating to their own topic. Our aim is to get everyone talking towards a better future.

What would happen if every blog published posts discussing the same issue, on the same day? One issue. One day. Thousands of voices.

http://BlogActionDay.org/

Already very known blogs have joined this initiative. I think it would be great to talk about an issue that is important for every soul in this world. I’m calling on to you, the reader to participate. All you have to do is go to http://blogactionday.org/ and submit your blog.

    i dnt really care abt the environment, i dnt know why, but this is a good idea for those who really care so good luck and happy blog uniting thing i dunno what :) hi!

    princess,
    I don’t know why either, and yeah it is a good idea for those people who care, not only about the environment but everything really. Hi back at you dear ;P

    It’s a nice idea but I think we need to stop doing and actually start doing.

  3. illusion |

    I ment to say stop talking and start doing :)

    illusion,
    I think this can be a start. It all begins with a word, and talking right now as all we can do. Enshalla in the future, we’ll be able to do something real, something people can see. This also doesn’t mean that just because we can’t or wont do for some reason that we don’t talk! ;p

    Words without deeds are fruitless , its not enough that we just put some logo on the blog but act as well , why not reduce the use of plastic for a while ? or Switch off some lights while not in use , or reduce the ac when not needed , stuff like that or may be give plant a tree .

    Grey,
    You’re right but as I said to illusion; even if we can’t or will not act that doesn’t mean we cannot speak. Talking is influence. Besides, we do what we can right. When you see that light on in that room across the hall and know that no one will be there. Do you think actively and say I’m going to turn it off to conserve, or do you simply let it go by as not your responsibility? Personal actions can only be measures on a personal scale, and they do make all the difference :)

    I’m in!
    I just hope I remember to on Oct.15

    =)

    dishevelled,
    Thank you! If you sign up your blog on there, they will only send you two e-mails. One two days before to remind you that it is Oct 15. The next is in August 2008 about next year’s topic. :)

    There used to be someone who blogged about environmental stuff in Kuwait but stopped a while back: Valiant Contender

    3baid,
    Interesting blog, I wonder why he stopped. That’s pretty cool actually.

    sounds like a good idea! :)

    ammaro,
    I’m glad you think so :)

    Maybe it won’t make a difference, but it can’t hurt, right?

    If there’s even a minuscule chance that it might help, that’s good enough for me.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Ri,
    Nope, can’t hurt one bit, unless you have questionable blog-posting habits! You are welcome, and thank you for considering.

    wht a gr8 idea, to be frank, im not that big of an environmentalist..but i do get angry when i see garbage thrown on the ground..or excess factory pollution, or the use of too many cars for 1 household. wait a minute, thats making me sound like an environmentalist:P wht the hell, ill giv it a shot!

    Lone.Rangeress.63,
    Way to go! I suppose you’re an environmentalist at heart? ^_^

    CeCe,

    I loved your post. I clicked through and signed up.

    Things have to start somewhere. You helped publicize. I’m going to write about water. We can all do something, starting with not throwing trash out the @%##& car windows.

    Intlxpatr,
    That’s great! I’m glad to see a lot of people participating. Water is a great subject, and probably the least mentioned when talking about the environment. Mostly the concentration is on oil, pollution, the ozone, trees.

    I do hate people throwing trash out the window. It ticks me off, and I do not it. I don’t even allow my friends who I’m with to do it! It is one step towards having a better world.

    ummm now that sounds like me !! doing good stuff :P i think its a really good idea .. but for a starter we need to kill those smokers !! their smoke is always everywhere .. polluting the air !! smells yucky :D

    Navy Girl,
    Kill those smokers! La navy girl ma etefaqna! We should provide support and help them, not kill them! :p Maybe those who make the cigarettes are the ones who deserve to be put down? eh? ahem. Anyway, the environment is more important at the moment, and I’m glad you’ve taken interest :)

  14. Marzouq |

    If its in Kuwait then most probably it won’t happen since it might be Ramadan or 3eed on Oct 15 so naturally people in the Gulf won’t do anything! lol

    Marzouq,
    It isn’t much about doing something on that day, as much as it is about blogging about a topic! Doing is totally optional! ;p

  15. Navy Girl |

    FYI half of my family are smokers lol :D wana kill them all ;) i gave them all the care i could ooo what next they wont even listen !!

    Navy Girl,
    Eh that’s alright, I’m sure if you keep on caring for them one day they will realize that you’re trying to help them. If they don’t, then you did what you could, killing is a last resort only! :p

  16. Laialy_q8 |
