Blog Action Day takes place on October 15, with the aim of getting bloggers across the globe to write about issues and solutions relating to a single issue. In 2008, that issue is poverty. If you need a little more incentive to write on the topic, World Vision Australia is running a competition for the best Australian blog post on how to combat poverty, with prizes including a tour of Google's Sydney HQ, a chance to play with Microsoft's Surface computer, iPhones and other goodies. Just add a link to your post on the competition page to be in the running. (Yes, there's an obvious irony in seeking out a prize when writing about poverty.)
