Those visiting my blog today might notice the new banner at the top, and the cute red cat in my sidebar. Both are announcing my support for the Internet Defense League’s protest against NSA surveillance.
As you can read on PC World and other blogs, many popular websites are participating in this protest, including WordPress.com!
If you also oppose the NSA’s snooping into private citizens’ online activities, and you have a WordPress.com blog, you can join me!
WordPress.com has added a special widget you can use to show your support.
To add it to your blog, go to your blog’s Dashboard. Under Appearance > Widgets, you’ll see a new widget called “Internet Defense League”.
When you drag it into your sidebar (or into any widgeted area of your theme), you will have the option to add a banner or overlay to your blog; you can decide whether you want to participate in this one protest or future actions; and you will get the choice to also add one of three images (or nothing) to your sidebar with an automatic link back to the Internet Defense League.
Join me in saying NO to the NSA and yes to the Fourth Amendment, yes to freedom and yes to privacy.
