Want to know how to participate???
I am a strong believer in the First Amendment and everyone's right to free speech. However, given the possibility of abuse ofthis audio blog, I've decided on some guidelines that *must* be followed.
Please note that any audio blogs that containing personal identifying information beyond the first name and city the person leaving the audio blog is located in, or vulgar language will be deleted. Any audio blogs that are contrary to the specific purpose of this blog, which is to help bring world-wide attention and media coverage of herpes/genital warts, the stigma surrounding both, and educate others about herpes/genital warts, will be deleted. I reserve the right to delete any audio entries that may be considered defamatory or insulting.
I know people in the Herpes/Genital Warts community will be considerate of these guidelines and understand exactly why they are in place.
On that note...if you know of any person who has herpes/genital warts, or any organizations that have support/social groups who may want to pass this on to their members so the members might participate, you are welcome to do so.
In advance, than you for your participation.
Are you interested in making a difference in bringing attention to
Herpes and Genital Warts? Do you want to get the media to stand up and
take notice? Do you literally want your voice heard...but still
maintain your privacy and anonymity?
I have started an audio blog at : http://dearoprah.blogspot.com/
The main purpose of this blog is to bring personal stories of having
Herpes/HPV to the attention of world-wide media...by asking Oprah to
cover this topic on one of her shows...as the sole topic. Regarding
the rest of the media...where Oprah goes...the rest of the world
How would you participate???
This is how it all works. To post an audio blog to: http://dearoprah.blogspot.com follow these steps:
1. Call (415) 856-0205
2. When prompted, type in the following number: 8002324636
3. When prompted for a pin, type in: 1234
4. Leave your message.
There is a disclaimer at the top. Basically, by leaving a message, you
are acknowledging that by participating, you give your express consent
entitling me royalty-free, worldwide license to use your voice without
compensation. Which means...if Oprah/Harpo or any other news media
organization comes a calling and hears something they like and want to
use...I have the right to grant them use of that clip of audio.
I think everyone has the right to free speech...but I do reserve the
right to remove audio posts that contain personal identifying
information beyond first name and location, vulgar language, or are not
about this *SPECIFIC* subject.
I think so.
Please pass this post around to other herpes organizations around the
world...and thanks in advance if you choose to participate!
