On this year’s Blog Action Day, over 5,700 blogs from 143 countries reached an estimated 41,231,000 readers regarding the world’s various water problems. Several popular blogs contributed this year, including The White House Blog and The Official Google Blog, and feel free to stop by our post for a great way to share your fundraising goals with your readers. Despite the broad reach of this year’s Blog Action Day it was a rather steep decline from the over 31,000 blogs that participated last year regarding climate change. We’ll let you know as soon as voting begins for next year’s Blog Action Day topic, and hopefully we’ll wind up with a topic that more bloggers are passionate about. If you published a post for this year’s Blog Action Day, kudos to you for participating, and please feel free to share it with us.

Today is Blog Action Day 2010, and this year’s topic is water. To many of us, water is a commonplace item. We don’t have to walk for miles for a simple drink of water or risk our lives with every sip, yet over 800 people world-wide have no access to clean water, and over 3 million people succumb to water-related diseases every year. Organizations like Charity: Water, Children’s Safe Drinking Water, and Water.org are collecting donations to provide wells and water filtration to communities around the world, so wouldn’t it be nice if you could set a fundraising goal on your WordPress blog and share the experience with your readers?

October 15th is less than two months away and Change.org wants you to vote on this year’s Blog Action Day topic. Currently, the selection includes the following topics, but they will continue to take suggestions until the poll closes. Water: The UN recently declared water to be a human right, but millions around the world still lack even the most basic access, causing widespread disease and the possibility of military conflict over access to clean water. Human Trafficking: From prostitution to forced labor, more than 27 million people are modern-day slaves, making human trafficking one of the most overlooked man-made tragedies in the world. Women: The most discriminated against group in the world isn’t a minority: it’s women. From inequality in schooling to reduced economic opportunities, women face a disproportionate degree of adversity all over the world. Sustainable Food: Industrial agriculture has overtaken the world’s food supply – creating obesity […]
