Cause Related Blogging Goes Mainstream?

Everyday another blog gets launched.

Blog for Hope from Yahoo! seems so far to have a very humane purpose.  Possibly part of a larger corporate consumer strategy but worth sharing nonetheless. 

Excerpt:

“Produced in cooperation with the American Cancer Society and Yahoo! Health, Blog for Hope focuses on cancer prevention and early detection by stressing the importance of changing bad habits to reduce risk, knowing treatment options, and adopting healthy lifestyles. You can help the American Cancer Society pursue its ultimate goal — the elimination of cancer — by making a donation to support programs for research, education, advocacy, and service.”

I suppose this is where technology meets “cause.”

Blogging has definitely changed my life. I was amazed at how quickly the feeling of community came through. I’ve met some great “strangers” on line. I’ve learned from them and been encouraged by them.
