Upcoming Blogger Events

Bloggers Unite is a website that gathers together events taking place in the blogsphere and invites members to commit themselves to writing a post to their blog to help publicize world charitable and humanitarian events. All of the below events are organized by Blog Catalog.

Earth Day will be celebrated on April 22nd. Join with your fellow bloggers and spread the word about protecting the environment.

United for Hunger and Hope. On April 29, write a post about world hunger and help spread the word.

World Press Freedom Day. From the Bloggers Unite site:

The United Nations General Assembly declared 3 May to be World Press Freedom Day to raise awareness of the importance of freedom of the press and remind governments of their duty to respect and uphold the right to freedom of expression enshrined under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and marking the anniversary of the Declaration of Windhoek, a statement of free press principles put together by African newspaper journalists in 1991.

Observe this important event with a blog post on freedom of the press on May 3rd.

To some it may seem like posting on your blog about a subject like world hunger is a waste of time. But, the more voices discussing such a topic the more publicity it will get. There will be more of a chance that people will try to force their elected officials to do something about the problem. I don't believe that any discussion is a waste of time...
