Blogging for global change

I’ve just been nominated for a “Blogging for Global Change” award by fellow blogger, CraftyGreenPoet of Edinburgh Scotland. The award originates at Climate of Our Future, a blog dedicated to discussing climate change and how it can be prevented. The “award” is a way for individuals to acknowledge and ecourage eachother’s efforts and make links with others. This is how it’s described on the site:

This award goes out to all of the Bloggers for Positive Global Change. It’s not limited to any specific ideologies, religions or philosophies. It puts a premium on human compassion and the desire to make the world a better place for all of us, without exception.

The participation rules are simple:
1. When you get tagged, write a post with links to up to 5 blogs that you think are trying to change the world in a positive way.
2. In your post, make sure you link back to Climate of our Future.
3. Leave a comment or message for the bloggers you’re tagging, so they know they’re now part of the meme
[“Meme” is a new word for me. It’s dictionary meaning is “a system through which behaviour is passed on from one individual to another” — kind of like a chain of people, I guess.].
4. Optional: Proudly display the “Bloggers For Positive Global Change” award badge with a link to the post that you write up.

Wow! Well, I’m honored to be nominated. I like the idea of making connections and supporting people who are concerned about the world and want to make a positive difference. I hope I can live up to the nomination.

I’d like to nominate True Stitches, the blog of my friend Heather, who believes in making the world a better place one stitch at a time (and in other ways as well).

I’d also like to nominate author Diane Haynes and her Wildlife Rescue Series blog in which she talks about her wildlife-rescue-mystery-themed YA novels, the writing life and her concern for nature and animals.

Here are a few more intriguing web logs written by people who care about people, animals and the natural environment (a couple of them have already been nominated for the Blogging for Global Change award):

    I love those buttons, Jacquie! Just gorgeous and so perfect as a set. You need an Etsy shop! (Oh no more time online!)
    Thank you for the nomination, I shall try to be worthy.

    I think these buttons are catchy to the eye and relative to the cause of raising people’s awareness. Let’s all “button up”.
