I guess this is one for the technology area, encouraging attendees at a conference to go to an evening event to learn a practical lesson about blindness

General Thoughts on Disablism, I think? It's pretty much just a rant really XD

Hi, here's my post: http://sunnydreamer.net/shi2011/badd2011.shtml

It is just a composite of past entries and experiences, so it will fall under general thoughts on disablism.

Here's my link: http://embracingchaos.stephanieallencrist.com/2011/05/badd-2011-a-glimpse-of-success/

Please put it in "Other."

 

Blogger Martha said ... (12:57 AM) : 

My blog is believe in who you are, and my post is called selecting my spoons. It probably goes in the general category.

I think I'd put this under impairment specific.

I commented on the wrong post first. Go me. But here's mine:

I think it belongs in the General Comments on Disablism section?

I also posted on my main personal blog, linking to Sam Richards' TED talk on empathy.

Mentioned earlier, but my second piece, http://dwgism.livejournal.com/9702.html seems to have slipped through the net, probably best in politics.

 

Blogger Spaz Girl said ... (3:05 AM) : 

Here's mine, sorry that it's on the later side, I actually finished it last night but didn't have time to post it here. Um, I guess it can go in Personal Journeys.

Gah! I did my entry on time, but didn't send in an url!

This would probably go under parenting or employment.

Thanks!

Very late, but here's mine:

This is about benefits - not sure where it would best fit! Probably thoughts about disability :) xxx

Oh, wait, surely it is "General Thoughts". 8-) Sorry I didn't see that category before.

http://aquakerwitch.blogspot.com/2011/05/blogging-against-disablism-why-im-tired.html

I think this goes in healthcare, other access, impairment-specific, and maybe in general thoughts.

Thanks sooo much for doing this!
