Tomorrow is Blog Action Day. Are you ready?

This morning I discovered, via a tweet from @lizstrauss, that tomorrow — Oct. 15, 2008 — is Blog Action Day. The purpose of this day is to unite the voices of bloggers everywhere to focus on one topic. This year’s topic is poverty.

From the site:

By all posting on the same day we aim to change the conversation that day, to raise awareness, start a global discussion and add momentum to an important cause.

Why?

Every blogger has a unique voice, audience and perspective. By speaking to their readers on topic about an important issue we can discuss global issues like poverty in a new and hugely multi-faceted way. And from discussion springs action.

I hope my fellow higher ed bloggers will join me in posting about poverty tomorrow. If you need some ideas to stimulate your thinking, here are several.
