Disability Blog Carnivals

Standard

I didn’t post links to any of these while they were happening, so here they are:

Disability Blog Carnival #1 was hosted at Disability Studies at Temple U..

Disability Blog Carnival #2 was hosted at The Gimp Parade. The theme was “The Cure”.

Disability Blog Carnival #3 was hosted at Growing Up With a Disability. The theme was spirituality and disability.

Disability Blog Carnival #4 will be hosted at Diary of a Goldfish. The theme will be “different ways of going about things”. Here is more elaboration on what is meant by that theme, and instructions on how to submit an article (your own or someone else’s) to the carnival. A reminder that some people don’t submit their own, so submitting other people’s stuff is really useful. (I didn’t find out disability blog carnivals existed until someone other than me submitted my writing to the first one.) Submission deadline is Monday November 20th.

About Mel Baggs

Hufflepuff. Came from the redwoods. Crochet or otherwise create constantly and compulsively. Write poetry and paint when I can. Physically and cognitively disabled. Anything you hear in the media or gossip is likely to be oversimplified at best and wildly inaccurate at worst, the only way to get to know me is to actually know me. I'm not really part of any online faction or another, even ones that claim me as a member. The thing in the world most important to me is having love and compassion for other people, although I don't always measure up to my own standards there by a longshot. And individual specific actions and situations and contexts matter a lot more to me than broadly-spoken abstract words and ideas about a topic. My father died a couple years ago and that has changed my life a lot in ways that are still evolving, but I wear a lot of his clothes and hats every day since he died and have shown no sign of stopping soon.

  1. Thanks Amanda! And yes, submitting links to your own recent posts, or links to other people’s recent posts, both are very welcome. The host also has the prerogative to add in links to recent posts otherwise unsubmitted, that she judges interesting and relevant.
