So I’ve been getting all Occupy on your asses for sometime now (obviously) but a new friend of mine is doing something really cool I wanted to turn ya all onto. TOMORROW will be the first ever “Blog - In”. What is a blog in you say? (I was confused a first too) here’s a little bit of info from THIS full post:
"Born from our frustration and desire to enact change, Lisa & I came up with the concept of a Blog-In. We crafted a simple letter to the 2012 presidential candidates (and in truth, to all our elected officials) that we’re urging all parent bloggers to post on their sites on November 8th.
The plan is straightforward: read our letter. If you agree with us, please spread the word, sign up and post it to your site on November 8th. In addition to posting the letter on 11/8, feel free to share your own words/reasons for participating either before or after the letter.
Email a copy of your post to the candidates, the president, your elected officials. Involve yourself in this new form of democratic protest. While posting a letter on your blog might not be the loudest action you can do, by collectively posting it, we can show that our voices are many. That parents do have something to say about the way things are going in our country and that we demand change."On November 8th, 2011 we urge you to participate in a new form of democratic protest - a virtual Blog-In. To our knowledge, there has yet to be a Blog-In regarding a presidential election, and we are aiming to be the first one. Our goal is to have at least 100 bloggers post our open letter to the 2012 Presidential candidates (see below) on their personal blogs on November 8th.
Our letter is simple. We are parents involved in the democratic process. We are mothers and fathers fed up with the political rhetoric being fed to us, and urge potential presidential candidates to focus on the real issues that matter to American families.”
You may not be at the level of getting involved with the Occupation but this is an awesome, simple, peaceful, and easy way any parent blogger can have a voice and join other bloggers on election day. Change starts when people come together! I’ll be joining these lovely ladies tomorrow, wanna join us?
oh and here’s a cute picture of the kid holding her new protest BFF baby Dom, first time she ever held a baby!!!!!
