Announcing BlogBlast For Peace 2010!

**Next BlogBlast4Peace NOV 4, 2013.**
Go here for complete details



Welcome to the 7th launch of BlogBlast For Peace aka Dona Nobis Pacem in the blogosphere. 
 Its inception began in 2006 with one single post and a cry for peace in our world.
A small group of bloggers answered that challenge and it began to spread across the internet in ways that humble me still. It reaches across political lines and religious creeds, abides in corners of unrest and places of hope, gives voice to individual beliefs and promotes tolerance for diversity. It celebrates the genius in each one of us, found in sparkling conversations of passionate pleas for change in the earth. It is that hope for change that motivates us.

It was the Internet's first ever online movement of its kind to invite bloggers to post the same message on the same day. From blog to blog it has moved and continues to grow. It is a virtual inscription of hope. We have been amazed to see the power and passion shown each year displayed on pages across the world. We visit each other with our prayers and scribbles, prose and poetry, art and angst, heart and hilarity - and we are moved by it. From one post to thousands of others in fifty countries and almost every state in the United States, something rare and wonderful happens on BlogBlast For Peace day.
I am privileged to witness it.
I invite you to experience it.
It's time.
Join us!
November 4, 2010
Bloggers from all across the globe
will blog for peace.

We will speak with one voice.
One subject.
One day.

How To Get Your Peace Globe 2010
Here's how to do it in 4 easy steps!







1. Choose one of the Peace Globe designs shown on this page. Right CLICK and SAVE in JPG format.

2. Sign the globe using Paint, Photoshop or a similar graphics tool. Decorate the globe anyway you wish. You can even include the name of your blog. Click here for thousands of inspiring examples from previous BlogBlasts.

3. Return the peace globe to me via email ~ blogblast4peace at yahoo.com . Leave a comment and your blog's name and url so that we can visit each other.
Your submission will be numbered and dated in the official gallery with a link back to your post and a permanent spot on the Official BlogBlast For Peace website.

4. On November 4, 2010 DISPLAY YOUR GLOBE IN A POST on your blog, FACEBOOK WALL and TWEET IT! USE THE HASHTAGS #peace and #blogpeace to keep us organized and viral

Title your post
"Dona Nobis Pacem" - Latin for Grant Us Peace. This is important. The goal is for all blog post titles to say the same thing on the same day. Write about peace that day or simply fly your globe.
Come back here on November 4th and sign your name again once you've posted your own globe. This will insure that your contribution is documented and numbered.

 

Need ideas and inspiration? Go to BlogBlast For Peace.com to see the gallery of thousands of peace globes and posts from 60 plus countries already submitted and numbered. It will also be added to the FACEBOOK albums on my page.

1. Post this badge on your site and Facebook pages to promote.
Or feel free to use it as your globe on November 4th. Just grab the code below.
November 4, 2010


2. Become a Peace Globe Worker Bee.
This organization of busy helpers and dedicated peace bloggers began in 2009. The concept was created by this man and taken up by a growing number of bloggers with a passion for peace and this movement. Read "You See There Were These Bees...." to find out how the bzzzzzzz started bzzzzzzzing. Any one of the bloggers mentioned in that post or who commented on that post are ready and willing to assist you.

What does a PGWB do? Many of you already do the following actions that define a Peace Globe Worker Bee: Spreading the word, posting the date, flying the Blog Blast banner, offering assistance to anyone who needs help making a Globe, or directing bloggers to one of the sites where they can find out more about the movement. Please take the bee badge with you too! We want to see the peace bzzzzz everywhere! We appreciate all you are doing already to spread the word.

3. SHARE and TWEET this post every chance you get until November 4th, 2010.



This is what has gone before.
I can't wait to see what you do with this movement in 2010.

Wouldn't miss it!!
Unless of course we actually HAVE world peace by November 4th. Because then it would be kind of silly, wouldn't it?
:-)

Felicitas said...

Can't wait! I'm sure this will be the best year yet!

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

Great graphics! You certainly are good at this. I have my poster up at my place so all will know about November 4. I want to mention that the code was wrong. It kept taking me to another place, the mom changed it to: http://mimiwrites.blogspot.com/2010/04/announcing-blogblast-for-peace-2010.html

and it takes me to the right place. You might want to change. Thought you would want to know.

I am happy to say that I will participate in the world peace in November too!

Mimi Lenox said...

Rino - Can't wait!

Ferd - That would be awesome.

Felicitas - I think you're right m'dear.

Mimi Lenox said...

Bazza - I know!

Hi Mimi, count me in. Nice logo we have for this year. I can't wait to beautify the one for me.

It's an old idea, but the World could certainly use more peace and love, and these days especially. Blog Blast for Peace is a great idea!

Shinade aka Jackie said...

I am late but come humbly with apologies to all, especially you Mimi!!

I hope my post will help. And, I am praying for forgiveness along with peace.

I think you will find this post this time much more appropriate.

And, everyone is right....great job on graphics and everything!!

Peace,
Jackie
