Sign Up For Blog Action Day #MondayMusings

Blog Action Day is a free annual event for bloggers, that has run since 2007. Its aim is to foster conversations between bloggers from around the world, by asking them to focus on one theme, for one day and be part of a positive global discussion.

You are probably aware of how independent voices especially bloggers who have spoken out against oppressive regimes or fundamentalist groups, have been silenced in recent times.

Only two examples

The Murder of Khaled Said in Egypt

Bangladesh blogger Niloy Neel hacked to death in Dhaka

It is to honour these brave voices that Blog Action Day’s theme for 2015 is #RaiseYourVoice.

In India too, we’ve seen trolls threatening those of who dare to speak out on issues of injustice, corruption and violence.

It’s time for us as bloggers to raise our voices against any sort of censorship.

Today, I’m requesting you to register  for Blog Action Day 2015. Join thousands of bloggers around the world on  October 16 and #RaiseYourVoice through your blog post and social media shares.

On October 16, we will have an open linky at Write Tribe for you to add your Blog Action Day posts.

Let’s blog to make a difference.

Every Monday, another blogger will be co-hosting with me. If you’d like to be that blogger, let me know either in the comments or by using the contact form. I’ll let you know the date and provide you with the code.

Today’s linky can be found here below and my co-host is the gentle poet, Payal Agarwal, who crafts her magic at Kaleidoscope.
