Now that you've joined and participated, you're ready to create your own citizen media and/or your own campaign like:

• Green LA Girl's Starbuck's Challenge (http://greenlagirl.com/2006/05/01/starbucks-challenge-40/)
• Beth Kanter's fundraisers using ChipIn and Facebook to send a Cambodian orphan to college.

(http://beth.typepad.com/beths_blog/2007/10/the-campaign-re.html)
• Alex Bookbinder's Support the Monks Protest in Burma Facebook group (It was started in September and as of this writing has 426,505 members!)
(http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=24957770200)

You can also create a free or low cost web site for your campaign or small organization with a blog, like Drilling Santa Fe (http://drillingsantafe.blogspot.com/) and Urban Sprouts (http://urbansprouts.blogspot.com/) did.

If you aren't sure how to do something, Google it! That's how I started my blog, by Googling, "How to start a blog."
