This year's IBARW will take place between July 27 through August 2.

Please do let me know if they overlap with major holidays though!

How Can You Help?

  1. I need people to help compile links to posts. In 2007, there were four of us and about 500 posts; in 2008, there were about 250 posts. I have no idea what the volume for this year will be. Each person will basically take a day, put up a post in the [community profile] ibarw comm, then tag links in the IBARW del.icio.us. If there aren't enough people to do one day/week, we'll rotate. We'll also keep track of requests to retag posts in case something is tagged wrong. Also, if you can read a language that isn't English, that would also be really useful for tagging non-English posts.

  2. If you're not American by self-definition, I would really, really, really appreciate a post or posts from you, as the "international" part of IBARW is very important. Extra love and appreciation if you aren't from an English-speaking country/nationality. Posts in non-English languages are also very welcome!

  3. Spread the word!

    I especially need volunteers for this this year; I'm a little short on mental health resources and won't be able to do much outreach.

  4. Post! If you're white and don't want to take attention away from POC bloggers, I respect that. But if you still want to contribute without taking attention away, you can also links to posts by POC or drive traffic or search for IBARW links for the compilers.

Suggestions and critique welcome here.

Man, I will be out of town for almost that entire week or I would be happy to compile links. I'll see what else I can do, though.

I might be able to help w/links, also earlier in the week (as opposed to August 1, which starts Moving Season here).

Post a reminder closer to the day?

Also, I have a paid account, so you can send email directly or to bibliofile@journalingservicenamehere.dot
