Today is the 3rd Annual International Webloggers Day. Bloggers from around the world are encouraged to make mention of this day and spread the word.
I myself had a pretty cross-cultural morning. Picture a Canadian (me!) and an American meeting in a German city, having coffee at an Italian bistro and Chinese buffet at a restaurant with a Japanese name!
Ginnie was in town again for a few days after her Scandinavian cruise and we managed to spend a few hours together talking and taking in the bright flags and World Cup souvenirs that are all over Hannover right now. As other bloggers have mentioned, the World Cup in Germany seems to be bringing about a sense of national and international pride and unity. That's a Good Thing.
And of course we all know that blogging is also about bringing people together who may otherwise never have met, online or off. Blogging crosses international boundaries, breaks down stereotypes and promotes mutual understanding. It emphasizes the similarities between us and celebrates the differences.
It's International Webloggers Day. Go reach out to someone right this minute. Because I said so.
why can't we all just get along?
