I’ll be hosting February’s Disability Blog Carnival on the 25th. If you don’t know what the Disability Blog Carnival is all about, you can see some examples of past editions here, here and here. It’s a round-up and celebration of the best of the month’s disability blogging, grouped around a theme. This month’s (optional) theme is Participation. What do you participate in, and how? Whether you take the theme to refer to hobbies, fun activities, or just the smaller things in life that are still important to us, I think talking about our participation in life and society is increasingly important in this world of cuts and limitations. In a society where we’re regularly accused of wasting the ‘taxpayer’s’ money, let’s celebrate the fact that we do frivolous things! To give you an idea, the topic was inspired by a suggestion by Lisy Babe, with whom I share an interest in cult TV, that people might want to write about participation in fandom.
It would be great if you could get your blog posts to me by 20th Feb, to give me time to work on the round-up post – I’m a slow blogger! If you have a last-minute burst of inspiration, though, I’ll do my best to fit it in later. Either link to your entry in a comment on this post, or e-mail me with the link at lilwatchergirl (at) gmail (dot) com.
Enjoy participating in the month’s blog carnival!
