Promote your Blog Action Day posts

If you are taking part in Blog Action Day, you may like to know that there’s a place where your related stories can gain more visibility. I’m talking about Care2, a wonderful green/social action site.

The most obvious way to promote a specific blog post over there is by submitting it to Care2 News Network. It’s just like Digg, but as you must have guessed, it’s specialised in environment, science, green lifestyle and charities. Absolutely do not submit unrelated stories.

Did you know that on Care2 you’ll find a plethora of groups about just any topic you can think of? That’s a great way to meet like-minded fellows, exchange views and… yes, maybe plug your stuff, if you’re cautious and wise enough.

If you really are into social networking, go to the People section and see how many great things you can find there: new friends, photos, blogs… Yes, you can have your own Care2 blog. What’s more: you can easily share your posts, lists, recipes and even create some informal newsletters (known as network messages).

On the People section you will find dozens of tags that indicate what Care2 members are interested in. They could be a great source of inspiration for new posts. You may also gather inspiration by reading the articles available on Green Living, and by checking the petitions listed on the site. I’m sure you’ll end up signing some (or many) of them, because you’ll certainly find causes that you’ll be happy to support.

Oh, do you want to support even more causes? Click here. And then click more. ;-)

I hope you have realised that Care2 is a site meant for people who care for other people, for the environment, for the world. That should be obvious enough. But unfortunately there must be many marketers out there who see this whole Blog Action Day thing as yet another way to show how much they care… for themselves, for money, for success, for fame.

There’s nothing intrinsically wrong in trying to promote your blog on sites like Care2 — as long as it’s related to this kind of niche, of course. The site itself gives you plenty of promotional opportunities. Moreover, if I found it unethical, I wouldn’t have written this post.

All I ask is that you use some common sense. If you’re really not interested in human rights, if you think that global warming is a lie, and if all things green bore you to no end, then just look for another venue to promote your stuff. It’s simple like that.

    I think anything that promotes helping our fellowman/woman is worth its weight in gold, I have spent a life time helping others and the modern world is a difficult place to do this, and be recognised for doing this. More spotlights on those who help others please. not the greed of those who suceed.

    Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements
