UPDATE!  Visit the page links at the top of Mimi Writes for all the information you need to participate.

November  4, 2013
Bloggers from all across the globe
will blog for peace.

We  will speak with one voice.
One subject
One day
(and they did!)
Welcome to the 7th launch of BlogBlast For Peace aka Dona Nobis Pacem in the blogosphere, Nov 4, 2010. It's 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.

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 (see buttons at bottom) and TWEET this post every chance you get until November 4th, 2010 and on that day.

Need ideas and inspiration? Go to BlogBlast For to see the gallery of thousands of peace globes and posts from 50 countries already submitted and numbered.
The peace globes are now housed in albums on my Facebook page. Go here to find yours.

I can't wait to see what you do with this movement in 2010.
