I’ve been tossing around the idea of starting up a disability issues blog for a couple of years now. I don’t have any particular insight outside of my own personal and professional experience (and this is definitely not a work blog), but I’ve noticed that these issues aren’t always on the radar in the first place. Sometimes people without disabilities just haven’t heard about the realities of the experiences of people with disabilities. Furthermore, sometimes people with disabilities, myself included, don’t know much about the experiences of people with disabilities other than their own. I can only represent my own life, but I hope to learn about what’s happening with other people as well. And when I really have no idea of what the heck I’m talking about but know someone who does, I’ll bring in the occasional guest blogger to cover particular topics of interest.
I’m happy to get (constructive) comments, although I reserve the right to mock spam mercilessly. I certainly don’t expect that everyone will agree with my views, but I’m excited to have a place to put them.
In conclusion, welcome, enjoy, and hi Mom!
