      Global Voices Advocacy is pleased to announce the second of several
      planned manuals focused on the topics of circumventing internet
      filtering, anonymous blogging and effective use of Internet-based
      tools in campaigns for social and political change.

      Blog for a Cause!: The Global Voices Guide of Blog Advocacy explains
      how activists can use blogs as part of campaigns against injustice
      around the world. Blogging can help activists in se veral ways. It is
      a quick and inexpensive way to create a presence on the Internet, to
      disseminate information about a cause, and to organize actions to
      lobby decision-makers.

      The goal of Blog for a Cause!: is twofold: to inform and to inspire.
      The guide is designed to be accessible and practical, giving activists
      a number of easy-to-follow tips on how to use a blog to further their
      particular cause.

      The guide is divided into five sections:

      Frequently asked questions about what blog advocacy is

      The 5 key elements of any successful advocacy blog

      The 4 steps to creating an advocacy blog

      How to make your blog a vibrant community of active volunteers

      Tips to help blog activists stay safe online

      In addition to the information provided above, the guide is also full
      of examples of advocacy blogs from around the world, to inspire
      readers with a glimpse of what is possible. These featured advocacy
      blogs have a variety of goals, ranging from freeing a jailed blogger
      in Saudi Arabia to protecting the environment in Hong Kong and
      opposing the conflict in Darfur.

      The guide was written by Mary Joyce, a student of digital activism
      based in Boston, and was commissioned by Global Voices Advocacy, an
      anti-censorship project of Global Voices online.

      If you found this guide useful when setting up your blog campaign,
      please email us to let us know.
