On Lofty Goals and Worthwhile Causes

It's that time of year again!


Blog Action Day 2008 Poverty from Blog Action Day on Vimeo.

Once again, I'll be participating - perhaps a little more in-depth than last year - but without being as sanctimonious, self-righteous, or preachy as I imagine some bloggers will ;P

My city, Winnipeg, is often referred to as "Child Poverty Capital of Canada", and I encounter poverty and homelessness on a daily basis on my way to and from work. I will endeavour to write about these daily experiences, good or bad, and what an "Average Joe" like me can do about it.

On another note, I'll have a few web-related surprises for my readers in the coming weeks (possibly including the inaugural edition of my podcast), so keep your eye on this space.
