3 years ago or so I started a site called “Two Thirds of the Planet”.
It was called “Two Thirds of the Planet” because the site was all about disability, and that’s what they say, you know: that two thirds of the planet has a connection with disability in some way.
Well, (like many of my ideas), the timing was off – it was a little too early for me to truly dig into another site, and it was placed on the backburner in my head, where it’s been simmering and stewing.
I think the time is right now. I moved it to a front burner, dusted it off, and polished it a little:
is now where I’ll be posting my disability posts, the Voices of the Disabled Community series, and an exciting new Instagram project called 365 Days with Disability that I’m partnering with the Disability Visibility Project in producing. More on that in a bit.
In the meantime, here on this blog, I’ll be focusing on family, travel and life off the grid. A little bit about disability, but not that much.
If you like reading my disability-centred posts, the guest posts and all, please “like” and follow Two Thirds of the Planet on Facebook
And definitely subscribe on the site to receive posts via email and all that good stuff.
So there it is! I’m nervous and excited and happy – and it all feels very right.
