Blog About Palestine Day — Blogs List (The Seeds)

Tomorrow is Blog About Palestine Day. So far, the response has been truly amazing. This event was kicked off exactly two weeks ago (on May 1st), and yet so far more than 200 people are known to have signed up for the event. The event got picked up and reported on by the “Global Voices Online” as well as “Now Public“. Mainstream media outlets such as the BBC World and AlJazeera English have also been contacted. Blog aggregators such as the Qwaider Planet and Dwwen have supported the initiative and advertised about it to their readers. The Facebook event also has about 150 people who have signed up for it (and growing).

Here is a short list of blogs (that i know about) that have signed up for this event. This list is absolutely in no particular order, This list is absolutely not all-inclusive, if your blog has not been listed here, please let me know so that i can add it.

These are some of the seeds, tomorrow will be the blossom, and after that i will try to compile a harvest list of the articles.

This is shaping up to be one truly spectacular event. I am anxious to see and read all your articles. Coming to think about it, with this massive number of contributers, we are almost writing an entire book in that day. This is amazing. Think of the awareness we will be raising about the Palestine and the Palestinians in just one day.

As a general tip, please use creative titles for your articles. Try not to stick to “Blog About Palestine Day”. Also, to ease the harvesting, please include a link/track-back to the original call as well as one of the event’s buttons in your post (so to aid future readers).

Thank you all for your help and support. See you on the 15th.

  14. No Za3tar, it is YOU who we should thank, for taking the initiative! I always believed that bloggers will be the leaders of tomorrow – we are the new media and it is our responsibility to make the public aware 🙂

    God bless! Looking forward to read everyone’s posts 🙂

    I believe they should all be compiled as you suggested and be sent to the press or some media for everyone to see.

  15. I have been writing about Palestine for the past week or so. Just a tid bits of history, who I am, and where I am now in the world.

    Thanks.

  26. I want to thank Everyone who joined in to add something for Palestine on their blogs and websites. I have been on a long journey over the internet reading the various articles posted.

    Bloggers Unite for human rights had bloggers blogging on the same day. Just maybe that event was planned to happen on the same day because they had Palestine in mind, because where else in the world is so many human rights abuses happening along with everything else to the whole population if not Palestine.

    I posted about this event as well was posting about Nakba with various articles and videos

    Palestine Video blog

    As well I posted on my other blogs as well

  27. Hmm, so where is my blog link:(
    I also have one blog about Palestine blog day.. http://askadenia.net/?p=202
