Blogging for the environment - opportunity for conversations

On October 15, thousands of bloggers will unite to blog about a single topic - the environment.

If you're a blogger you might like to check it out.The concept is a pretty simple one, just blog about the environment on October 15. Anyone with a blog can participate. Click the graphic, follow the link - you'll see what to do.

Our family will hopefully post video blog entry for the online-event. I thought it would be a great way to share some time together. We're trying to plan what we'll do right now and will hopefully start shooting this weekend. (the weather needs to play nice - please!)

I've decided to use this as an opportunity to start conversations with my daughter about the environment and what we should all do to make it better. "The environment" is a pretty broad topic so it presents a lot of interesting ideas - think politics, personal responsibility, consumerism (and all the other -isms wrecking the planet), culture, spirituality, conservation and endangered species; there's a lot there. I've found it interesting to hear what my 10-year-old has to say about it all. I'm hoping we can make an interesting vlog of it ;-)
