Bloggers' Day of Silence

Watching the news about the situation in Japan is so difficult. That's why I wanted to participate in the Blogger's Day of Silence. I experienced many earthquakes while I was living in Mexico. During the scariest quake that measured just under 6 on the scale, I couldn't stand up straight in the street. The earth was shaking so much, that it made me dizzy. After I lost my balance even while holding on to a car whose car alarm was sounding, I sat on the ground until the movement stopped. It was an experience that I will never forget.

What is Bloggers' Day of Silence and how can you participate you ask?

Anyone that has a blog can help out with this one.The aim is just raise awareness and respect and acknowledge the devastation going on in Japan.

The guidelines are simple.

1. This coming Friday, March 18th, no posts at all on your blog.

2. Please post a blog post about what you will be doing this Friday whenever possible in hopes to spread the word and whoever else would like to join in.

3. Tweet and Re-Tweet the link to please.

4. Encourage your readers to contribute to donate shelter to Japan.Whatever anyone can contribute will be appreciated.

Please join me this Friday March 18th in the Bloggers Day of Silence. My blog will be silent, which means no posts will be featured to honor and respect that has happened in Japan. My prayers and thoughts are with all those impacted by this natural disaster.

To all other bloggers: if you're interested in participating, please contact or for more information.


  1. Thank you for listing the date. I heard about this but was fearful I'd be the idiot that blogged
