#Raise Your Voice - Join Blog Action Day 2015

Today I bring a different call to this blog.  It's Blog Action Day.I participated in Blog Action Day for several times already. I don't know if my first time was 2008. I have this stamp I created back then. In 2008 Blog Action Day was was about acting against poverty. Past topics have included Water, Climate Change, Poverty, Food, Power of We and Human Rights.

When I participated the first time in Blog Action Day blogging was more important than social networks. This was a blog thing more than anything else. Hence the name of this event - blog action!  It was cool to know that we bloggers were making something together, thinking and sharing our thoughts, taking action.Today it starts on the blogs and moves away from it to socila networks. It's even better. The way we blog and use the internet changed a lot. But to take a moment to give attention to a theme or an important cause, to  have some thought about it and join other voices, exchanging opinions, it's still relevant! If you never heard of this, come on, try it! 

Read all about it bellow:

"We have the power to create the world we want to see when we raise our voice to promote positive change and expose unjust actions. However, those who their voices are often under attack.

This Blog Action Day we will celebrate those heroes who raise their voice when faced with censorship, threats and even violence. We will raise our voices to defend their right to raise theirs.

We will overcome silence with our words and actions. We will share their stories. We will fight for those whose voice has been silenced.

On October 16, we invite you to speak out with others around the world, as we support those who cannot do so safely. To showcase the power of our words, images, designs, videos and creativity by sharing our posts, and supporting partner organizations who all aim to protect and celebrate our blogging heroes and their ideas.

Join us, by being part of the global conversation on your own blog this Blog Action Day

You might want to focus on some from the past, someone you have recent heard about, or someone in your own community.

You might want to focus wider than one person , and discuss a movement, organisation or moment in time, or that you think need higher profile right now.

Or, you might want to take another angle completely. It’s up to you.

Why not share your ideas below in our comment section".
