October 15th is Blog Action Day, the one day of the year where thousands of bloggers can work together to focus on one important global topic, and help raise awareness and money for charities and social causes. 2012 is the third year running that Kabissa has participated as a Blog Action Day network partner. We love this year's The Power Of We theme that resonates so powerfully with African cultural concepts such as uBuntu and Sticks in a Bundle Do not Break.
As in years past, we enthusiastically encourage everyone blogging from and about Africa, on Kabissa and on your own blogs and websites, to join in and be a part of Blog Action Day. We will do our best to help spread the word about the issues and causes you write about via the Kabissa blog and social networks.
Read on to learn how Blog Action Day works, prepare for blogging on Kabissa, and get information about this year's The Power of We theme.
