This morning I read about Blog Action Day, a campaign to get thousands of bloggers to write about the environment on October 15. I’ve actually got a draft post I’ve been working on that would fit the topic, so it’s an easy choice to make.

And for those of you who need a different kind of motivation, there’s a quiz: What kind of blogger are you?

I am a...Purist Expert Socialite blogger.  What kind are you?

I think that’s probably the first time I’ve ever been called a “socialite.” Frankly, I’m a bit disturbed. (And is it just my imagination, or does the drawing on that badge look a little like Neil Gaiman?)

Update Oct. 15: Here’s my post on water conservation in California. It’s actually not the one I had in mind, which I decided wasn’t quite on target, but I had some other ideas bouncing around in my head.

Update September 2008: They’ve taken everything down from 2007, including the images for the quiz results. I pulled a copy of the banner from the Wayback Machine and uploaded it locally.

  1. I am giving away a reusable, refillable Nalgene Refill Not Landfill bottle to help bring awareness to the number of bottle water containers that never get recycled – numbers as high as 8 out of 10 make it to landfills.

  2. Mike — not surprised. That’s better than the ratio of recycle bins to plain trash cans in public places.

    Hmm, I think I’ve found my preferred nonprofit.

  3. I am currently running a month-long blogging campaign on environment-related matters at The Giving Hands , which had begun on Sept 15th, and will conclude on Oct 15th in conjunction with Blog Action Day. And I’d like to invite you over to my blog to participate in the campaign. Perhaps you have some tips or experience you’d like to share?
