I was reading someone’s blog the other day who was writing for “Invisible Illness Week”. I had never heard of Invisible Illness Week and as someone with a chronic illness, I wanted to learn more. In a few clicks, I was surfing the Blogger’s Unite web site, creating a profile and joining the National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness group on Bloggers Unite myself.
Bloggers Unite is a community of bloggers who write for causes they care about. Members are encouraged to write posts on a particular day (or multiple days) in an effort to harness the power of hundreds, if not thousands of bloggers, blogging about the same topic all around the world.
To find a cause that is of interest to you, you can use the search feature to find and join groups. You can read posts related to your cause and write your own post about a particular cause as well.
For those of you who want to promote your own cause or event, all you need to do is follow the four simple steps below:
1. Create an event you are passionate about
2. Add a “badge” to your blog to help spread the word
3. On the date of the event, write a blog post on the subject
4. Share your post with the Blogger’s Unite community
Nice way to bring awareness to important causes as well as to connect with people with similar interests.
