On October 15, millions of people will read blogs advancing the public conversation on poverty. This is thanks to the efforts of Blog Action Day, an annual collective-action event when everybody writes about the same topic.
I was reminded of this event recently, but Blog Action Day has been pacing in the back of my mind since participating last year, with an article about sustainable design for the communal topic of Environment. I’m not sure how I’ll approach Poverty, but as a graduate student with family, I think I have some experience on the matter. The organizers have also helped by providing a page of resources to help bloggers be more informed on the subject.
