In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You'll find the fun, and...snap! The job's a game!
I await getting back into a blogging groove. it's time to take action and pull out the mouse's tried and true solution to the bloggy blues - the blogabet. in the past the alphabet has served as a delightful muse - not only is the alphabet fun, it's interesting to see where the alphabet takes us - I liken it to a sustained association exercise.
this year since we are starting in october, it seems fitting to start off with promoting an annual worldwide blogging event - blog ACTION day. beginning in 2007, blog action day has united the world's bloggers by encouraging worldwide discussion of an issue which needs action; past topics include the environment (2007); poverty (2008); and climate change (2009). this year the topic is WATER.
as I write this morning, there are currently 1,341 blogs registered to participate from 91 different countries with an estimated readership of nearly 12 million people! if you haven't registered yet, I hope you will - if you do, please leave a comment. I don't want to miss your contribution to the dialogue on this very important topic. it's a snap to register - just go here.
one more action plug - tomorrow, october 2nd, is a day of action and activism for america. because of my recent wander to austin (and other towns that don't start with the letter a) I'll be absent. I'm sure there will be plenty of mouse associates in attendance - I anticipate reading your articles about the action! details of the october 2nd action are here
