Blog action day!

On the 15th of october 2008, blog action day takes place. The goal of this event is to raise awareness of one special topic by getting as much bloggers as possible to write about this topic. This year’s topic is “Poverty” and already lots of high-ranked blogs like Techcrunch, Smashing Magazine or Mashable are participating.

In order to take part, there are several possibilities: one could write a blogpost related to the topic and thereby adding to the global discussion. Others can use their day’s earnings to microfinance a loan or give them to charity.

I think that this is a great initiative and over the last weekend, I thought about how can contribute to blog action day. My day’s earnings are almost 0 and as it is a blog, which focuses on photography, it does not make sense to write an article. Therefore, I came up with the idea that I could create a big texture pack, publish it on that day, and you – the audience – could donate whatever you think it is worth. Afterwards, I will forward all donations to one of the charity organizations mentioned on

What do you think of this idea? Or do you maybe have other ideas on how this blog can contribute to this event? Please share your thoughts in the comments.

    I think it’s a great idea. I too have signed my blog up for Blog Action Day ’08. Since it’s a band website, I am setting up a special donation “tip jar” for that day with all donations going to charity.

    Best of luck on October 15th, and thanks for being a part of a worthy project!
