    I signed up to participate with http://www.mentalhealthnotes.com, but I still haven’t made any final decisions about my blog post. I’ve already covered ways to get low cost or free mental health services and medications several times at the blog, so I’m hoping to have a spark of genius between now and then so that I can either a) have some new idea, or b) at the very least, cover the old idea in a more interesting way, haha.

    Hmmm I definitely wrote a comment on your meme post but it isn’t there. Weird. Anyway I’ve signed up for Blog Action Day again and I think the way I am going to participate is to actually act against poverty in some way as well as blog about it. Currently I am thinking of a micro loan through one of the groups that provide them – I just have to determine who is legitimate and well established enough for me to trust my money with them.

    hi. i put the banner on my side bar.

    “I just encourage you all to share ideas on what bloggers can do to make their 15th of October blog posts on poverty interesting. Or creative. Or special. You get the picture.�

    OMG. Being a product of a less fortunate family I want to share some ideas, hardship that we encountered and how we dealt with every situation. But my problem is I do not know how to write my ideas clearly. So, please bear with me but still I want to try my best to do it.

    Here, I may say that a blogger may conduct an interview or have some documentation of the daily lives of the less fortunate people. How people deal their situation? Do people end up marrying at an early age to escape (as other people may think) their current situation or do people continue to strive and look for another option to lessen up the hardship that they have?

    As I said earlier, I came from a poor family. But despite everything, I tried my best to finish my studies and have a stable job. When almost all the people around me thought that I may end up marrying at an early age, I showed to them that they were all wrong. I looked for some good souls ( a million thanks to them) who let me work and study at the same time. And here I am today, got my diploma and have a good job. Enjoying a happy life!

    I’m considering joining in for Oct. 15. Melissa W.’s intent to do a micro loan (and if I recall something about micro loans on the website for Blog Action Day?) had me look into micro loans in my neighborhood. There’s a neighborhood coffee shop that got it’s start that way, and I may blog about that.

    Sasha: Yay! Thanks. :)

    Alicia: You did a great job. Thank you.

    Melissa: Hmmm – that IS weird. Sorry about that. Next time, if it happens again, please alert me so I can try to find it. Sometimes, comments seem to get caught accidentally by Akismet. Anyway, thanks again.

    blue rose: Thank you for sharing. I can definitely empathise. You’re doing great! :-)

    Lynn: Thanks for participating. Hope you found it worthwhile!
    Easton: Did what I can. And, it was good. Well done on putting together a great event. Looking forward to next year!
