The blogosphere is an amazing community: many voices, many opinions, many experiences, all shared through the power of words.
This means blogs can create a powerful online community spirit. It also has the ability to spring to life outside the Internet. We can use our online experiences to build a stronger local community, in our own lives, by sharing knowledge and information with one another.
For example, about a topic at the forefront of both the news, and our minds: HPV and its effects, and possible sources of prevention.
Have you written information, thoughts, opinions, personal stories, experience etc. about HPV, cervical cancer, HPV vaccines and related topics?
Are you considering writing about it? (Please do!)
Have you found a reliable resource that provided invaluable information for you about this topic?
I believe this is a topic worth researching and considering, and to do that, I think people should have easy access to as much information as they might want or need.
To that end, I'd like to feature links to more information about HPV and related topics in a blog post. I don't want to tell anyone what to think; rather, I'd like to link you to as much information and as many opinions and perspectives as possible so that you can decide what you think.
Many of us live in states that have taken away that right to think and decide for ourselves what the best medical decision is for us.
More states are on the block.
I believe being informed helps us care, and have a voice that is well-informed.
I'd like to feature links to blogs that have discussed HPV related topics, particularly related to factual information about the virus, potential diseases from it, and the vaccine.
If you don't mind being linked, please send me a link to your story, with a short one to two line synopsis or teaser. Let's say the deadline is March 9.
I'll post up the link post the following week.
Thanks and I hope to have lots of participants!
P.S. I've read some excellent posts and I might be contacting you!
