This year the topic for Blog Action Day is Climate Change. If enough bloggers participate, perhaps more attention will be brought to this all important issue and to the international climate negotiations scheduled for December in Copenhagen.
This is C.C. (aka Captain Courageous). I’m using this photo because that is how I feel right now. I have no energy, I don’t feel like working and am unmotivated.
I’ve felt this way for a couple of days. I’m not sure why. Actually I’ve been out of sorts for about a week. Not exactly down but more irritable and annoyed.
I think, ironically enough, the start of it was Blog Action Day. I was excited about participating and in hopefully bringing more awareness to Train for Humanity. I also set aside time to read other posts about poverty. And a lot of what I read really disturbed me. It wasn’t the posts that disturbed me but rather the comments.
I’ve been spending some time linking to articles by Train for Humanity and sending information about their endeavors through Twitter. There has been two reasons for this:
- -Mark Hayward is one of the nicest people I’ve met online.
- -Train for Humanity is using physical fitness and social media to bring raise money for Darfur Peace and Development
At first I didn’t know what to write about for Blog Action Day and then it hit me – duh! I said to myself, “Kim, you’ve been linking to Train for Humanity and sending tweets about them so why not take the time to write an entire post.”
