What's in a Name Blogfest October 15-22!

Welcome to the What's in a Name Blogfest!

This is a blogfest that's close to mine and Aaron's hearts because we wanted to create a blogfest that would bring awareness to hurtful words that are used in the world today and the impact they can have on someone's life. These words can be things like: faggot, dyke, nigger, retarded, etc. All of these words are considered to be what is called hate speech and we need to make an effort to stop that speech in any way we know how.

So, for anyone who wants to spread awareness about a certain kind or several kinds of hate speech, you can do any or all of these things: on your blog, write/vlog a personal story about a time in your life where hate speech was directed at you, a friend or a family member; post videos about hate speech, such as a Public Service Announcement video, post a book review that deals with hate speech, etc. The possibilities are endless! Remember: The goal of this blogfest is to bring awareness to hate speech and the impact that it has on people.

To sign up for the What's in a Name Blogfest, add your blog to the Mr. Linky list!

Tell your friends!

P.S. For the duration of this Blogfest, I'll be creating a new page on the blog that includes the Mr. Linky list. That way, any late comers can still sign up!
