As you are probably aware, Blog Action Day was created to unite bloggers and have them discuss a single issue on a single day. This year’s topic is poverty. Bloggers who wish to participate in Blog Action Day 2008 can register for free at http://blogactionday.org.
I hope you’ll stop by and listen to the talkathon throughout the day. Many bloggers and podcasters are giving up their time to lend their voices to a worthy cause.
