OCEAN'S DAY UPDATE



This is a little update on how to post your "oceans post" on Monday so we can all visit your blog. Chris is coordinating the blog-a-thon and we are all excited to see your post. So jump on board, she will have it up and running on Sunday sometime (she is in Spain - a bit of a time difference.) 


Just wanted to share an update. Yesterday I announced our Blog-A-Thon on The Ocean Project website, among their list of 2009 World Oceans Day events (click here). So hopefully we might be able to cast a slightly wider net of participants... who knows?

Before I sign off, just a reminder of what to do:
  1. Prepare a post on your Blog on the Seas / Oceans. It can be about this year's theme "One Ocean, One Climate, One Future" or something else entirely. You can share your maritime experiences, tell us how the seas inspire you, write a quirky tail sorry tale, or illustrate your blog with marine photos (or whatever else takes your fancy!).
  2. Include a link back to the main Ocean Blog-A-Thon post here which I will have up and running some time Sunday night (GMT) so your readers will know where to go look for other Oceanic posts and can have access to the wide variety (I hope!) of inspiring posts we'll all be writing.
  3. Leave me a comment here or send me an email (crazycrisb at ymail dot com) with your post's address so I can include and link to it in the main Oceanic Blog-A-Thon post and so send readers back to you.
As for something relatively simple you can do in "the real world", The Ocean Projectproposes you Wear Blue and Tell Two! The idea being that you wear blue and tell people two things they don't know about the ocean and two ways they can take action (shouldn't be a problem for me, half the clothes I own are blue! Now if they had chosen pink or orange... *shudder*). Hmmm... I get the feeling my poor Monday afternoon English student is going to get a crash course in Marine Biology! ;o)

I'm really looking forward to this. I hope you all have as much fun with this as I am! And I hope it helps us and our readers become more aware of the importance of the seas.

Cheers!

Thank you for taking the trouble to pass on this information. Sounds like a very fun project, and can't wait to read all blogs related to this.

As for 2 things you don't know about the ocean...1) The blue whale makes the loudest sound of any living animal. You can hear him from 530 miles away, and so does not make for a good neighbor. 2) The arctic jellyfish has tentacles 120 feet long...wonder if they will change the saying from "long arm of the law" to long arm of the jellyfish?

I love your "thought of the day"! I have often wondered why we call our planet Earth and not Ocean... perhaps aliens visiting our planet some time in the future will be kind enough to change it for us? :p

I knew about the blue whale, but not about that crazy jellyfish! I wonder how thick those arms are...

Hi Cris, looking forward to it, I am sure I have sea water in my body instead of blood.

Thank you for this information. I can't wait to read everything. I have very little to say on the subject (how sad) but look forward to learning something new.
Thank you for stopping by and leaving lovely comments. I would imagine most parents question what they're doing; it's nice to get reassurance:)

Just read your comment at my blog and came to email you a special piece related to your HS alma mater, but alas, no email. So pasting here (perhaps you already saw this):

High schoolers embrace hugging
May 28: For this generation’s teens, hugging seems to be all the rage at high schools around the U.S. NBC’s Chris Jansing reports on the trend. Today Show

I'm in for Oceans Day, having made a note to do this on June 8.

Lydia - Thank you so much! When I attended Hug we all hugged, and it was just a terrific school - you may remember if you graduated 1969 Wooster. They transferred students from all over the city to attend that school. Then it just went downhill - not a good school by the time my brother attended. I had not seen this Today segment - I am so glad it is right back up there! After travelling to other states - we do have a good school system here.

I'll put my e-mail up as soon as I can figure it out. Thanks again. Looking forward to your post on Monday!

What a great idea! Oceans are so evocative and mysterious. I look forward to reading the related posts though right now I am not up to writing one myself.

THanks,

ERika
