SPECIAL: Blog and save the world
I have good news.
I have just agreed a deal to become managing editor / blogger-in-residence on an exciting new green blog project.
For me this represents a pretty unique opportunity to turn my blogging into action and financial reward.
This blog will enable me to do something real and positive using my blogging skills. Plus it will help me sustain my family at the same time. Everybody wins.
And the best part is that there is plenty of love to go around for any other green bloggers that wish to get involved at a variety of levels. More on that in the coming days / weeks I promise.
Plus City Hippy will not suffer from neglect I promise...if anything it will blossom even more :)
It is all about the Rainforests. The goal of the blog is to create a space to share thoughts and knowledge about the Rainforests, to debate the issues and to provide readers with practical way(s) to protect the Rainforests. Information and action combined.
To make the blog a useful resource and discussion hub I intend to cover everything from the history of the Rainforests to the people, plants and animals that live there and ultimately to the problems the Rainforests and its peoples face and the myriad of ways we can assist in empowering them to solve their problems in sustainable ways they approve of.
The blog will hopefully become a common ground for all those interested, regardless of expertise and background, in this most iconic and critical of green global projects.
As you all know I am on a constant journey of green discovery and evolution myself. When the opportunity to head up this project was proposed it was way too good to turn down. Like most regular urban folks I know very little about the Rainforests other than what I hear and read in the news. This blog project will give me the opportunity to learn and share about the Rainforests in a very interesting and rewarding way.
The folks who approached me for this project are a nonprofit foundation funded by a socially responsible eco-marketing company created to protect the Rainforest through the power of the global marketplace. I agree with their approach for many reasons all of which will I am sure become topics of debate. I look forward to telling you more about them in the near future.
Hopefully I will enable others to actually help protect the Rainforests and the people that depend on the Rainforests by producing an informative blog that inspires people to act.
Hopefully you will all be involved one way or another: at the very least by linking and commenting and debating and perhaps even more.
Am very excited to be working with them. Can't wait to tell you more.
Namaste to you all.
