It turns out I was part of Blog Action Day after all! Woo-hoo! =)
That’s because Ditzy Mitzie somehow forgot about that little thing called timezones. So when I lamented yesterday that it’s already October 16 on my side of the world, it was just October 15 where the Blog Action Day peeps were! Coolness. =)
This morning when I checked my mail, I found this (I’m posting an excerpt only) from Robin Beck, lead organizer of Blog Action Day 2009:
You did it!
Yesterday you and bloggers in 155 countries across six continents wrote about a single issue that impacts us all, and turned Blog Action Day 2009 into one of the largest social change events ever held on the web.
Your participation helped change the conversation and showed the power of the web to connect people across the world who despite their varied backgrounds have one shared desire: to make a difference. According to blogpulse, we increased the number of posts about climate change on a given day by 500%, and CNN wrote a great article covering the excitement and diversity of today’s event across the web and around the world.”
Robin then moved on to say that the full recap of yesterday’s Action can be found here.
He also reminded us Bloggers that there are still “ongoing opportunities for involvement” especially at the upcoming International Day of Climate Action on October 24. “And we hope you’ll stay with us,” he said.
Okiedokie. I’m there! =)
