Looking Toward September 27th

I picked this up from Cursuum Perfidio:

To me, who has posted so much about abuse, I believe that it’s a great idea and I plan to participate:

On September 27th , join 1,000s of bloggers around the world in BlogCatalog's Blogging for a Great Cause Challenge.

This Blogging Challenge will be:

Bloggers Against Abuse
September 27th, 2007

The Outcome we are after is to be part of the largest group of bloggers to ever blog about an important cause, all on the same day.

I invite other bloggers to also participate on September 27. You can find more information about this project here.

To get your creative juices following, here are a few of my (egotistical, ain't I) blog posts on the subject of abuse:

Sexual Assault Awareness

Sexual Abuse: A Rule of Thumb

Incest: The Crime that Devastates Lives

Incest: Does the Pain Ever Stop? A Personal Story

Women & AIDS


  1. a great cause! i don't know how good i'll be at it, but i'll give it a lot of thought.......even if i don't blog, i'll certainly be reading!

  2. Makes me wish I still blogged. Maybe I could do a come-back tour for that day.

    When are you going to MySpace Nick?!

  3. Excellent idea, Rev Saint! It almost makes me wish I had a bog.

  4. Well...Crabby abuses the heck out of me, maybe I'll blog about her. ;)

    Great cause!

  5. Hi Nick ~~ What a great idea for a lot of bloggers to post on the same subject on the same day. I will keep it in mind. Thanks for sharing the story of your ex wife and your own
    battles resulting from the incest.
    Thanks for your comments about the Solier story, and I think they all get sent back to battle when they
    are able. Take great care Nick,
    Regards, Merle. I hope it's cooler for you and Alex.

  6. ` So, enough people read blogs that this will actually have an effect?
    ` Hmmm. I used to post stories about my dad, but nobody commented or anything. Maybe I was just doing it on the wrong day?

    ` BTW, I re-did that kitten sketch! Doesn't it look so much different?

  7. Thanks so much. I will be blogging that day on such an important issue.

  8. Interesting... I'll try to remember that...

  9. ROBIN: Yes! Give it some thought. As I read the instructions, the type of abuse doesn’t matter. It could be anything.

    LYNN: Here’s back to ya: {{{{{{{{Lynn}}}}}}}}

    JD’s ROSE: I have so missed you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    AZSONOFAGUN: Start a blog if you want, Rex, but please continue to add your comments to my blog.

    MILK MAID: Come on, woman! Crabby abuses everyone, but no one as much as herself! Yes, it does seem to be a great cause, doesn’t it?

    MERLE: Thank you. Yes, it does seem to be cooler off a bit, if just for a bit.

    S E E QUINE: I think it could be effective. I’m told that millions of folks read blogs each day and if thousands were to blog on the same subject… I like what you did to the kitten sketch. If I haven’t said it before, you do have artistic talents, especially for a scientist!

    EMERGING FROM THE FIRE: You are so welcome. I look forward to reading what you write.

    CHINA GIRL: Yes, it is a wonderful idea. I wonder whose idea it was.

  10. ` Y'know, I would think that there would be a lot of overlap between scientists and artists, considering the brain usage involved. True scientists must be creative, at least.

  11. S E E QUINE: I’ve always thought of science as a left brain activity and art as a right brain activity. Of course, there are unique folks who are ambidextrous. From what I have observed of you from your blogs (besides the lovely color of your eyes), you have many talents whose sources must reside in both sides of your brain.

  12. thank you for letting me know about this. i will try to write or make an illo appropriate to the day. i am a very loud b**** when it comes to ranting about child and spousal abuse, and look forward to adding to the bloggers' discussion.
