Tag, YOU Are “It.” Let’s Blog For Peace.

by Shelly Kneupper Tucker on May 22, 2008©

Friends, I rarely post viral memes anymore, but sometimes one just seems so right. This is one. I tag you and anyone else you know to join the Blog Blast For Peace.

Now, my friend Sandee, at Comedy Plus, reminded me that it’s almost here, and I thank her for that. You see, the annual Blog Blast for Peace is right around the corner (June 4th, 2008). Bloggers are encouraged to fly their peace globes and write about peace on that day (which reminds me that I need to create a new peace globe for this year!).

So who came up with the grand idea? It’s was the marvelous Mimi Pencil Skirt, the QUEEN of meme’s, the creator of The Peace Globes who is the author of BlogBlast for Peace.

Mimi said:

Peace Globes did not begin as a meme. But it began to behave like a meme. Blog to blog to blog. Like a fog. We didn’t use the word “tag” ….but that’s what we did when we invited others in our blogrolls to participate. The fact that you did so without the obligatory tag is proof that the concept is powerful.

It’s a fact that the fastest and most effective way to spiral an idea out of control in the blogosphere is via a meme. I should know! The 700+ bloggers who participated in past launches (and that truly is the tip of The-Iceberg-I-Never-Found) knows what it means to them. It’s about unity. We have that in spades. It’s about activism, awareness, crossing political lines, making a statement and sharing ideas. We’ve done that. We have the vision as a core group of bloggers for peace; but we do not – yet – have the power in numbers behind the message.

Here is a chance for you to join in a peaceful revolution. You always wanted to be a revolutionary, didn’t you? Let’s tell people about the event before the fact, and just see how powerful blogging can be. If you want to post this, let me know and I’ll add your link to the end of the list.

Here you go:

BlogBlast For Peace Meme ~ Join The Revolution

Here are the rules and the story. Copy this into a post and tag as many people as you’d like.

The Peace Globe project began in the fall of 2006 with a simple post from one blog, Mimi Writes. The post ignited a flame in the blogosphere. The flame became a passion. The passion became a movement. It amazingly traveled from blog to blog to blog across the globe. Bloggers wrote passionate articles on what peace means to them, along with the promise of three Latin words scribbled on a globe – Dona Nobis Pacem (Grant Us Peace) – branded with the integrity of their names or blog names. It was positively inspiring to watch. And it began to happen all over the world – from Singapore to China to Afghanistan to Brooklyn.

It was simple. And powerful.

In less than two weeks bloggers from all
across the globe will blog for peace.
We will speak with one voice. One subject. One day.
Won’t you join us?
